What is Product Liability?

“Product liability” is an area of law in which the goal is to hold corporations that make dangerous or defective products liable for their negligence. Negligence can occur during many different steps in the process of creating a product and distributing that product to the public.

A successful product liability suit can hold negligent parties accountable and compensate injury victims. Additionally, the results of such cases can prevent future injuries from occurring by identifying negligence and issues.

Manufacturing Defects

A manufacturing defect is a one-of-a-kind. The product was not inherently defective, but there was a missing part or assembly mistake that caused it to be unsafe. A manufacturing defect can happen to any product, from a log splitter to a medical device.

Manufacturing defects are not intentional, but they are not necessarily “accidental” either. Although the product manufacturer likely did not intend to create a defective product, the defect is a result of their negligence. Manufacturing defects can result from error in the actual manufacturing process, or because of a lack of oversight from administrative entities.

Design Defects

Products with design defects are dangerous no matter how they are manufactured. In cases of design defects, there is a fundamental flaw in the way that the product was initially created. This means that the product was unsafe from the start. Design defects often impact more consumers than manufacturing defects because thousands of units of the unsafe product are manufactured and sold.

Many automotive defects are at the design level, such as:

  • Tread separation on tires
  • SUV rollovers
  • Tire blowouts

Common Injuries Caused by Defective Products

Depending on the type of product that is defective, many different injuries can result. For example, a defect in a vehicle can cause an accident that results in severe tissue damage, while a defective electronic device may cause burns. The types of injuries that result will depend on the intended function of the product, the materials used to make the product, and other characteristics.

Some of the most common injuries that are caused by defective products include:

Defective products can also cause illnesses. A product that is manufactured with toxic substances or a drug or medical device that negatively impacts the health of the user can be very damaging.
