There are a wide variety of consumer products that we use in our everyday lives, and we expect these products to be safe.

Legal Issues in Product Liability Cases

Product liability refers to the responsibility of a product's manufacturer, distributor, or retailer for injuries suffered by a product's users. Victims may be able to pursue a product liability case based on one of the following claims:

  • Design defects - A product may be dangerous due to flaws in the design process that increased the risks of injury when the product was used as intended.
  • Manufacturing defects - Problems during the manufacturing process, such as the use of the wrong materials, may cause a product to break down or function incorrectly, leading to injuries.
  • Marketing defects - A manufacturer, distributor, or retailer may be liable for injuries that occur if a product is marketed to be used in a way that is different from its original design and purpose.
  • Failure to warn - Injuries may occur because consumers were not provided with instructions about how to use a product safely or because they were not warned about the potential risks of using a product.

Common Types of Product Defects

Consumers may be injured by many different types of dangerous products, including:

  • Baby products - Children can experience falls, asphyxiation, choking injuries, or other types of harm due to defective cribs, car seats, high chairs, strollers, swings, baby carriers, or toys.
  • Medical products - Defects in surgical implants, pacemakers, artificial joints, pain pumps, or other medical equipment can result in serious injuries for patients.
  • Motor vehicle recalls - Defective parts on cars or trucks are often recalled, including air bags, brakes, tires, seat belts, ignitions, and engine components. If they are not replaced, these parts can lead to dangerous car accidents or other types of injuries.
  • Pharmaceutical products - Prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications can have dangerous side effects, or they can cause injuries to patients due to allergies or interactions with other medications.
  • Tools and equipment - Power tools, landscaping equipment, and other items used either at home or while on the job can cause serious injuries if they do not function properly.
