Products Liability

Consumers can be exposed to a magnitude of harms and dangers when dealing with a product, some of which can result in bodily harm or even death. The jurisdiction in which the product liability case is filed will determine the liability of those involved in the chain of commerce as the defective product passes from the manufacturer to the consumer. A person or company can be held liable for a number of products ranging from faulty medical devices to cosmetics that have not been advertised correctly.

Liability can arise in two ways: by a defect in an individual product or via faulty design of the product overall. A defect in an individual product occurs when a single or small percentage of products have a defect at the time they are manufactured. A design defect refers to an inherent harm being present in every one of certain products, due to a flaw in its original plans.

What to Expect

Depending on the specifics of the case, an injured consumer can seek compensation from one or more liable parties, including manufacturers, wholesalers, and/or retail outlets. Determining the defendant in a product liability case is not a matter of choosing one liable party over another; any party involved in a defective product’s chain of distribution may be held accountable through a product liability lawsuit. When beginning to put together a claim for a defective product, it is important to include any party involved in the chain of distribution.

Manufacturer: This can include a large multinational company, an individual working out of his or her garage, or any parties involved in the design or marketing of the product. Depending on the size of the product, claimants can include the manufacturer of the defective part, as well as the manufacturer of the entire product.

Retailer: When a retailer advertises an item for sale, it is impliedly ensuring the product is safe and suitable for use. If a consumer purchases a defective product, the seller of that item, even though they were not involved in its manufacture, can be held liable for damages.

Wholesaler: The wholesaler is considered the “middleman” between the manufacturer and the retailer.

Any or all of the above parties could be held liable for damages resulting from an injury caused by a defective product.
