Product Liability/Defective Products
Product liability is the legal responsibility for a manufacturer, wholesaler, or seller to compensate a purchaser for any injuries or damages suffered because of defects in the product. Whether the obligation arises from negligence on the part of the manufacturer, distributor or seller, strict products liability imposes absolute liability on the entity. In order for product liability to be an issue, the consumer must be able to prove that the defect caused their injury or loss.
General negligence is the term used to describe a situation in which one party’s activities might be characterized as careless behavior, harming another party. The phrase means that someone’s carelessness caused harm, forcing the victim to file a lawsuit to recover damages.
Premises Liability, Apartment and Building Security
An element of personal injury law known as premises liability deals with injuries brought on by dangerous or subpar property conditions. In Tennessee, it is a legal requirement for anyone who own, occupy, or lease property to take reasonable precautions to shield guests from harm.
Construction and Workplace Injuries
Accidents that take place on building sites are covered by the field of personal injury law known as construction liability. You are entitled to restitution if you suffer an occupational injury as a result of someone else’s carelessness at work, which will cover your medical expenses, lost pay, and perhaps even agony and suffering. Negligence claims involving occupational diseases and work-related injuries are covered by employer liability insurance.
Insurance Bad Faith
When an insurance firm evades its contractual commitments to policyholders or third parties, it is acting in bad faith. You can file a bad faith insurance claim if you decide to sue a dishonest insurance provider.
Fraud and Misrepresentation
Any kind of fabrication or lie used to dupe a person into signing a contract is considered a fraudulent misrepresentation. Misrepresentation can take place in a variety of ways, such as through silence or inaction, written or spoken words, body language, or gestures or motions of the body.
Tennessee’s Consumer Protection Act (the TCPA) protects consumers from defective products. It applies to products used at home or work that are designed, manufactured, and repaired by one or more persons. Manufacturers, retailers and suppliers can be held liable for damages under the Act.
