What Does Product Liability Mean?

Product liability laws impose legal responsibilities on manufacturers, distributors, and sellers to produce and sell safe products that don’t harm or injure consumers. If a defective product harms someone, they can file a product liability lawsuit seeking compensation from those responsible, typically the manufacturer. However, distributors, marketing agencies, or others involved in placing the product into the stream of commerce could be liable, too.

What Are the Different Kinds of Defective Product Liability Claims?

There are three main types of product liability cases:

  • Manufacturing Defect Cases – These cases involve improperly constructed or assembled products that deviate from their intended designs.
  • Design Defect Cases – A design defect arises when the product’s design is inherently dangerous or flawed, making the product unsafe no matter how well it is made
  • Inadequate Warning Cases – A consumer might have this type of case if they get hurt by an unreasonably dangerous product due to a lack of instructions or warnings for safe use.
