Product liability law is an important aspect of consumer protection and aims to hold manufacturers and sellers accountable for the safety of the products they produce and sell. The law requires them to ensure that their products are free from defects that could cause harm to the end-user.
In the event of a defect, manufacturers and sellers may be held liable for various types of damages, including physical injuries, property damage, or financial losses. The type of compensation varies depending on the specific circumstances of the case and the jurisdiction in which the claim is filed.
There are three main types of product defects that can lead to liability: design defects, manufacturing defects, and marketing defects. Design defects occur when the product is inherently dangerous because of the way it was designed, while manufacturing defects occur when the product deviates from its intended design during the production process. Marketing defects occur when the manufacturer fails to provide adequate warnings or instructions regarding the use of the product.
To bring a successful product liability claim, the plaintiff must prove that the product was defective, that the defect caused the injury, and that the defect was the result of the manufacturer or seller’s negligence.
