Product liability is a legal concept that holds manufacturers, distributors, and sellers of a product accountable for any harm or injury caused by the product. If a consumer is injured by a defective or dangerous product, they may be able to file a product liability claim to recover damages for their injuries.
There are three main types of product liability claims:
Manufacturing defect: This occurs when a product is defectively manufactured and causes harm to the consumer. This type of defect can occur during the production process, such as a mistake in the assembly line, or a problem with the materials used to make the product. If a product has a manufacturing defect, it means that it is different from other products in the same line, and it is different from what the manufacturer intended.
Design defect: This occurs when a product has a dangerous or defective design, even if it is manufactured correctly. This type of defect means that the product is inherently dangerous or defective, regardless of how well it was made. For example, a car that is prone to rollover accidents due to its design would be considered to have a design defect.
Failure to warn: This occurs when a product does not have adequate warning labels or instructions, leading to injury or harm. This type of defect means that the product is safe to use, but the manufacturer failed to provide adequate warning about the potential dangers associated with the product. For example, a medication that is safe to use but fails to warn about potential side effects would be considered to have a failure to warn defect.
It is crucial for companies to ensure their products are safe for consumers, and they have a legal responsibility to do so. If a consumer is injured by a dangerous or defective product, they may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. This compensation can include medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
