Product Liability


Product Liability is the general name for an area of law dealing with consumer products that cause injury or death to people. This area protects consumers from harmful or defective products that companies and individuals manufacture for general sale. Unfortunately, thousands of preventable deaths occur each year from faulty products and result in deaths, injuries, healthcare costs, job loss, and many other social and individual losses.

Product liability covers any products that are involved in accidents due to some malfunction of the products’ purpose. Some major examples include SUV rollovers, defective tires, ATV accidents, faulty hospital products and beds, baby product defects and many more examples.

Recent product liability lawsuits involve:

  • Cooper Tires
  • Firestone Tires
  • Lemon Law
  • Defective Baby Seats
  • Crash Worthiness
  • Ortho Evra Birth Control
  • Charite Artificial Spinal Disc
  • Guidant Heart Defibrillators
  • Metallic Tracheal Stents
  • Medtronic Defibrillators

In product liability lawsuits, there must be evidence that the product was faulty because of the way it was manufactured. This ensures that the manufacturer is at fault, rather than some external reason. The injury sustained must be directly linked to the malfunction of the product in product liability lawsuits.
