What Is Product Liability?

Companies have a responsibility to design products that are reasonably free of defects that can cause injury or death to the person who uses it. If a danger cannot be designed out of a product, then the manufacturer has a duty to warn consumers.

Product liability laws cover a wide range of personal injury cases, including:

  • Defective auto parts such as air bags, seat belts, gas tanks and door latches that fail in an accident
  • Saws, presses, punches and other industrial equipment that lack safety features such as kill switches or which allow the operator to get his hand stuck in the equipment
  • Dangerous prescription drugs
  • Dangerous children's toys such as toys containing lead or choking hazards
  • Defective batteries that explode, causing burns, eye injuries or other catastrophic injuries
  • Products that contain inadequate warnings about potential hazards
  • Chemical products such as Deer Cane, which has serious side effects

If you have been injured by a defective product, it's important to save the product so it can be examined by experts.
