What Is Product Liability?

When you purchase a product, you should not have to worry that it will cause unexpected harm to you or your family. Unfortunately, every day across the United States consumers suffer injuries as a result of defective products. Sometimes, companies fail to safely design, manufacture and assemble their products, leaving buyers vulnerable to injury.

Warning text on a product

Product liability law holds companies responsible for the damages that their faulty products cause to purchasers. If you were hurt by a defective product, you can file a product liability claim against a company for injuries, lost wages and pain and suffering that you sustained.

A product is “defective” if it has imperfections or inherent characteristics that make it faulty or unsafe to use. These defects can lead to serious injuries and are usually the result of a manufacturer or retailer being carless or negligent in the production process. This includes:

Design Defects

Products with design defects have an innate flaw in their design, making them dangerous to consumers. A product with a design defect may cause harm to a buyer even if it is manufactured correctly. The faulty design of the product makes the whole line of products dangerous. Examples include:

  1. A ladder that is not strong enough to support the weight that it is intended to hold; or
  2. A curling iron that overheats and burns a person’s hand through the handle component.

Manufacturing Defects

Paramedics and ambulance

Typically, products are defectively manufactured when errors occur during the assembly of the product. Manufacturing errors render particular products unfit for their intended use. Examples include:

  1. An airbag that lacks a proper mechanism or sensor to trigger its deployment after an accident; or
  2. A car’s accelerator pedal (gas pedal) is prone to getting stuck.

Marketing Defects (Failure to Warn)

Products can be dangerous in ways that are not always obvious to consumers. In some cases, it is necessary for certain products to come with warning labels or instructions for hidden dangers. For example:

  1. A medication that can cause heart complications when mixed with alcohol is missing a warning label on the bottle; or
  2. A grocery item that was produced in a facility that processes peanuts does not have a warning label.

Who Is Liable For A Defective Product?

Before a product reaches the shelf in stores, it passes through numerous phases of the manufacturing process. This makes it possible that several different parties could be liable for the injuries that you suffered from a defective product, including:

  1. The part manufacturer;
  2. The assembling manufacturer;
  3. The wholesaler; and
  4. The retail store owner.

Theories Of Product Liability

In order to successfully win a product liability case, you must establish that a party in the manufacturing chain is liable for the injuries you suffered from a defective product. One legal approach in a product liability claim is known as strict liability. To successfully bring a strict liability claim against a defendant, you must prove that:

  1. The defendant sold a product that the plaintiff (consumer) used;
  2. The plaintiff suffered an injury using the product;
  3. The product or item was defective, faulty or inadequate; and
  4. The defect was the proximate cause of the injury.

Product liability claims can be complex because establishing that the product’s defect was the proximate cause of your injury is complicated. Additionally, strict liability claims require you to prove that you were using the product as it was intended for use when you were injured.
