What Is Product Liability?
There’s no way for the government to inspect and regulate every single product and item that’s sold in the United States. So, it’s ultimately up to manufacturers and retailers to make sure that the things they design, build, and sell to consumers are safe.
Product liability laws are in place to motivate companies to take this responsibility seriously. Under Nevada’s product liability consumer protection laws, companies can be strictly liable if a consumer is injured because a product they’ve designed, built, or sold is unreasonably dangerous or defective.
Strict liability means you don’t have to prove a company was negligent or careless. Liability attaches as long as you establish that the product suffered from a defect.
What Are the Three Types of Product Liability Cases?
There are three main types of product defects: design, manufacturing, and marketing (failure to warn).
Design defects exist when a product is inherently unsafe because of its design. It is unsafe, regardless of how carefully it’s assembled or how much it’s tested.
Manufacturing defects exist when a product isn’t put together according to its design. Maybe a piece is missing, the wrong part is used, or something gets damaged during the manufacturing process. These types of defects can affect a single item or an entire batch.
Marketing defects occur when a company fails to warn consumers about side effects or risks associated with the use of a product. This is why you generally see so many warning labels on the things you buy.

What Damages Can I Get If I’ve Been Injured By a Dangerous Product?
If you’ve been hurt because of a defective product, Nevada law gives you the right to seek both economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages are intended to compensate for the financial losses associated with your injury, such as:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages and income
- Medical devices or equipment
- Property damage
- Nursing care
Non-economic damages are intended to compensate for trauma related to an accident that’s intimate and personal, such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Reduced quality of life
- Mental anguish
These damages can be difficult to calculate and will vary significantly from one case to the next. Our attorneys will work diligently to ensure that your damages are identified and valued properly. When necessary, we’ll enlist the help of experts and specialists to make sure we get the valuation right.
How Long Will I Have to File a Product Liability Lawsuit in Nevada?
Nevada has a two-year statute of limitations that applies to most personal injury and wrongful death cases, including product liability matters.
Thanks to the state’s discovery rule, the statute of limitations can be tolled if there’s a reasonable delay in the discovery of your injury. So, technically, the clock on the statute of limitations won’t begin to run until you’ve discovered that you’ve been hurt. This can be particularly helpful in cases involving defective medical devices or equipment, when many injuries or illnesses may be internal.
It’s important to emphasize that you will lose the right to file a claim and demand compensation if you miss the deadline that applies to your case. Don’t lose out on the money you deserve. Protect your rights by calling our Las Vegas law office as soon as you can.
