What is Product Liability?
When a designer envisions a product, a manufacturer creates it, and a distributor makes it available to consumers, each of these persons is responsible for the safety of that product. In effect, they assume partial (or complete) liability for that product, so if the product is found unsafe in any way and leads to the distress or harm of a consumer, then the entity found at fault will likely owe the consumer financial compensation.
Different Types of Cases
Product liability cases can involve any product, so you can imagine this covers a number of different industries. For instance, many product liability cases involve:
- Defective household appliances
- Marketing defects
- Defective vehicles
- Design defects
- Dangerous childcare products and toys
- Toxic food products and containers
- Manufacturing defects
Any of the above problems could easily result in a product liability case, and an injured consumer might be entitled to receive compensation for the amount of damages sustained. These could be medical bills, rehabilitation or therapy treatment bills, or any other costs associated with damages caused by the product. Compensation for these costs can be critical to helping injury victims get their lives back together.
