Product Liability


Product Liability refers to that area of law that places liability with the manufacturer, wholesaler or retailer of a defective product that causes injury or harm. In addition, an action can be brought against the individual component makers of parts for the defective product or the assembler of the product. Often times, the companies responsible for the defective product have chosen to proceed with the defective product or component instead of remedying the defect due to cost.

Defects in the product can occur in a number of ways, these include:

Manufacturing defects

Design defects

Component defects

Unreasonably dangerous products
