What is Product Liability?

Product liability is the area of law that holds manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers, and others who make products available to the public responsible for any injuries these products cause.

There are three major types of products liability claims:

  • Manufacturing Defects: Manufacturing defects occur in the manufacturing process and typically involve poor workmanship or the use of subpar materials. With manufacturing defects, most of the product produced is generally safe, but one item or one batch of items is manufactured improperly, causing those particular items to be dangerous.
  • Design Defects: Design defects occur when a product design is inherently dangerous or useless regardless of how carefully the product is manufactured. This may be proven either by showing that the product fails to satisfy ordinary consumer expectations as to what constitutes a safe product, or that the risks of the product outweigh its benefits.
  • Marketing Defects: Marketing defects (also referred to as a failure to warn) occur when a manufacturer fails to warn consumers of non-obvious risks associated with the use, or foreseeable misuse, of a product. Not only must products contain warnings of such risks, the warnings must be adequate, and in some cases, must include instructions for safe use.

Virtually any type of consumer product can give rise to a products liability claim, from medical devices to food items to household cleaners.
