What Is Product Liability?

Product liability is a type of legal claim that can be asserted against the manufacturer or seller of a dangerous product. Responsibility for product defects that cause injury or harm lies with all sellers of the product within the chain of distribution. Generally, the law requires that products meet the ordinary expectations of consumers. Dangerous products with unexpected defects do not meet those expectations.

Any person injured by a defective product can recover damages, provided the product was sold to someone. You do not have to be the person who purchased the product to have a valid claim.

Types of Product Defects

To prevail in a product liability case, you must prove that the product which caused your injuries was defective, and that the defect made the product unreasonably dangerous. The three types of defects that can give rise to a product liability claim are:

  • Design defects: The design of the product is inherently defective and dangerous.
  • Manufacturing defects: These are defects that occurred in the process of manufacturing or assembling the product.
  • Marketing defects: This type of defect occurs when a product is improperly labeled or has inadequate safety warnings or instructions.

Some types of product defects can also result in car crashes, if you believe a defective product was the cause of your accident, visit our Jackson car accident attorney page and learn more about how our experienced team can help you with a crash claim.

Who Is Liable?

Liability for product defects may rest with any party in the distribution chain, including:

  • Product manufacturer
  • Component parts manufacturer
  • Assembler or installer
  • Wholesaler
  • Retailer

Common Types of Product Liability Claims

A product liability claim may arise when any defective product causes injury to a consumer. Common types of product liability claims include:

  • Automobile defects (such as tires, airbags, accelerator or fuel line)
  • Dangerous prescription drugs without proper warnings of side effects
  • Heavy machinery that malfunctions and causes injury
  • Defective medical devices that cause serious health problems
  • Tainted food that makes consumers seriously ill
