What is product liability? When a person is injured by a defective product that is unreasonably dangerous or unsafe, he or she may have a claim or cause of action against the company that designed, manufactured, sold, distributed, leased, or furnished the product. In other words, the company may be liable to the person for his injuries and, as a result, may be required to pay for his damages.
Products liability claims can be based on negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty of fitness depending on the jurisdiction within which the claim is based.
There are three types of product defects that incur liability in manufacturers and suppliers:
- design defects
- manufacturing defects
- defects in marketing
