Non-commercial, 3-D printed products could be excluded from product liability laws

Posted by Paul Levin | Dec 18, 2013 | 0 Comments

Nora Freeman Engstorm, an associate professor of law at Stanford, recently had her research regarding the coverage of product liability legislation in the country and non-commercial, 3D-printed products published in the Stanford Report on December 12.

In her research entitled “3-D Printing and Product Liability: Identifying the Obstacles,” Engstrom stated that injuries associated with products manufactured at home are excluded from the coverage granted by the traditional laws surrounding product liability. This means that victims of defective non-commercial goods, such as 3D-printed products created at home, would have to seek compensation through a personal injury claim, which requires them to prove that the maker had committed negligence that led to injury, rather than a strict product liability claim.

At the Law Offices of Paul Levin, we believe that any person in Connecticut who has been physically and financially harmed by defective products should seek legal advice as he or she may be owed compensation from the manufacturer. Speak with us about how you may be able to obtain much-needed compensation and justice by calling 860.322.5302 today.
