What is Product Liability?

Product liability laws set guidelines to provide retribution for victims of dangerous products and compensation for any injuries suffered. A product is required to meet certain expectations; if they don’t meet those expectations, the manufacturer can be held liable for any injuries from using that product.

What Would be Considered a Violation of Product Liability laws?

There are a wide range of potentially dangerous products out there, so in order to protect you as a consumer, there are product liability laws in place. Product liability lawsuits can be generally categorized under the following three categories: 

  • Defectively Manufactured: Meaning that mistakes were made throughout the process of manufacturing, assembling, or assembling the product for purchase by the seller. It also refers to assembly malfunctions due to insufficient instructions provided by the manufacturer to the consumer.
  • Defectively Designed: Meaning the product was incorrectly manufactured due to a design flaw. Typically, these cases involve more than one issue with the product in question. 
  • Warnings or Instructions: Meaning the proper warning or instructions were not provided, and in turn, resulted in personal injury.

What Happens if My Rights are Violated Under Product Liability Laws?

If you have been injured by a defective product, there are different kinds of liability claims that might apply to your case: 

  • Manufacturing Defects 
  • Design Defects 
  • Marketing Defects
  • Failure to Provide Warnings or Instructions
