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
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:
- The Manufacturer Created a Defective Product
- The Manufacturer Created a Dangerous Product
- The Manufacturer Did Not Include Suitable Warning
