Defective or dangerous products are the cause of thousands of injuries every year in the United States. Product liability law is the set of rules that determines who is responsible for defective or dangerous products. Product liability law is different from regular injury law, and these differences sometimes make it easier for an injured person to recover damages.
Product liability generally falls into 3 categories:
- Manufacturing defects, such as a tainted batch of cough syrup.
- Design defects, such as a car that’s prone to flipping over under normal driving conditions.
- Failure to provide adequate instructions, such as a paint thinner sold without adequate warnings of the dangers associated with using the product in an inadequately ventilated space.
Manufacturers have a legal responsibility to provide consumers with safe products and thorough safety warnings.
