What Is Product Liability Law?

When someone is injured or dies as a result of a defective or dangerous product, there may be grounds to bring a product liability case against the manufacturer and/or distributor of the product. These cases can be tricky as liability must be investigated and determined, and you may find that you must bring a claim against several different responsible parties.

Some common situations in which you might have grounds for a products liability case include when:

  • A manufacturing defect results in injury
  • A design defect results in injury
  • A product lacks instructions or reasonable warnings of potential risks or side effects
  • There was negligence on the part of the manufacturer
  • The terms of a warranty were not fulfilled by the manufacturer

Product liability laws cover a variety of situations, and circumstances that have resulted in products liability suits include SUV rollovers, defective seatbelts or airbags, faulty wiring in kitchen appliances, toxic household cleansers, malfunctioning or defective medical devices, defective machinery in the workplace, etc. If you think you may have grounds for a products liability suit, it is a good idea to contact a personal injury lawyer familiar with product liability laws in California.

It is essential that manufacturers are held responsible for their negligence.
