Manufacturers have an obligation to design and make safe products for their consumers to use.
They also have a duty to alert consumers of any potential problems related to their product, such as product defects and product recalls. Examples of product liability claims include:
- SUV rollover
- Tire blow-out
- Car seat malfunction
- Defective or faulty medical device
- Defective toys
- Drug recalls
- Mislabeled food supplements
- Toxic substance
- Unsafe equipment
Defective or dangerous products are the cause of thousands of serious injuries every year, including broken bones, burns, head injuries, spine injuries, brain trauma and wrongful death.
There are many reasons a product may be dangerous or defective. First, the product may be defectively designed in which case the entire product line may create a potential hazard to consumers. Second, the individual product may have a defect which occurred during manufacture, in which case the product may cause injury to only one person. Finally, the product may not have had a warning label, which adequately explained how consumers should properly use or handle it.
Product liability is an area of law that holds product manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers accountable for injuries sustained from an unsafe product. Virtually all products are subject to product liability law, including food, drugs, appliances, cars, toys, medical devices, etc.
