What is Product Liability?
Product liability is a legal concept that holds manufacturers, distributors, and retailers accountable for any damage or injuries caused by defective products. It is a strict liability, meaning that the manufacturer can be liable even if they have taken all reasonable precautions against harm to the consumer.
Essentially, product liability protects consumers from any type of product defect that causes injury or property damage.
There are three different types of product liability: design defect, manufacturing defect, and warning defects.
A design defect occurs when the product’s design inherently makes it unsafe and unfit for its intended use.
For example, an automobile with brakes that are not strong enough to stop the car under normal circumstances would be considered a design defect since it was designed in a manner that made it unsafe to operate.
A manufacturing defect occurs when there is something wrong with how the product was assembled, manufactured, or packaged. This could include a toy with small parts that were improperly glued together or a food item with foreign objects inside of it.
Lastly, warning defects occur when a product does not include proper warnings or instructions about its use and the potential hazards associated with it. When this happens, products are often used incorrectly, and people are hurt because of it. If a company knows of a potential hazard in its products and fails to put the right warnings on it, it may be liable for any damages that happen.
