What is a Product Liability Case?

Posted By Shook & Stone || 15-Feb-2016

As consumers, most people are constantly using various products to accomplish everyday responsibilities. For example, most people drive a car to work every day. Inside these vehicles are products such as airbags, which can malfunction and cause injury to a person. When persons get to work, many sit behind a laptop or computer, which are powered by electronics or batteries that can ignite if not properly designed. Although it may not be obvious, majority of people are surrounded by potentially dangerous products on a day-to-day basis.

When a person is injured by such products, or any other kind of product, the manufacturer can be held responsible for that individual’s injuries and harm. If the consumer chooses to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer, this type of case is known as a product liability case.

How Do Product Liability Cases Work?

Not every injury a person suffers as a result of utilizing a product will result in monetary compensation. For a person to win a product liability case, they must be able to display that the manufacturer was negligent in some form. Because manufacturers are responsible for releasing safe products into the market, dangerous or ill-constructed products are unacceptable.

However, to recover financial compensation for injuries, a consumer must be able to prove one of the following:

  1. The Manufacturer Created a Defective Product
  2. The Manufacturer Created a Dangerous Product
  3. The Manufacturer Did Not Include Suitable Warning
