Hogan Dowling McNamara Solicitors are experienced in dealing with product liability claims. Actions are normally brought under the Defective Products Act, 1991, which simplifies litigation since the claimant need not show negligence on the part of the producer and can instead rely on proof that the product was defective, that the claimant suffered damage and that a causal link exists between the defective nature of the product and the damage suffered.
We also advise in respect of contractual / indemnity exposure arising out of supply contracts in the various part of the supply chain (suppliers of raw material / components, manufacturers and distributors) and related insurance claims. Notable cases include acting in large product liability claim in respect of parts supplied for construction of large apartment complex in London and other construction projects.
Defective medical devices or implants can also lead to personal injuries actions. Read Medical Negligence page for more on our expertise in this important area.
