Products Liability

Products liability refers to the responsibility of all parties along the chain of manufacture of any product for any damages that are caused by that product. This includes the manufacturer of a product’s parts, assembling manufacturer, the wholesaler, and the retailer. The manufacturer of the product’s components is generally at the top of this chain and the retailer tends to be at the bottom. Products that are inherently defective can cause harm to the consumer of the product. Typically, products are considered personal property, but products liability has expanded that definition to include things such as gas, pets, homes, and even writings (e.g. maps).

Products liability claims can be based on three things. These things are negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty. Products liability laws differ from state to state. At this time, a federal product liability law does not exist. However, most jurisdictions demand that a consumer must prove that the product is defective due to its design, manufacture, or marketing.

Products liability is usually considered a strict liability offense, which means the liability wrongs do not depend upon the carefulness of the consumer using the product. It does not matter if the supplier used great care when they manufactured the product. If the product is defective and it causes personal harm, the supplier is accountable and the consumer has a products liability case.

As a consumer, you have the right to assume the products that you purchase are not defective. If you used a product for its intended purpose and you heeded the warnings provided by the supplier, but you were still injured, the supplier is responsible. You have the right to sue the manufacturer for selling you a faulty product, if it caused you personal harm. If you have suffered injury due to a faulty or defective product, contact us.
