Product Liability Claims
What Does Product Liability Mean?
Usually, product liability claims are related to machines that cause personal injury or death. The Ford Pinto, by way of example only, was a death trap because the gas tank was vulnerable in rear end collisions. A product such as a machine with a guard that has been removed or products that otherwise do not meet industry standards could be qualified as defective for which a manufacturer is strictly liable.
Product liability deals with dangerous or defective products that result in injury. A product can be dangerous or considered defective by design, due to a manufacturing flaw, or because of inaccurate marketing. Responsibility for a defective product can start with the manufacturer and end with the retailer including all intermediary suppliers. A product can also be considered defective if it lacks instructions or appropriate warnings or dangers for normal use or misuse.
Takata Airbags are a recent and well publicised example of a defective product that has caused grave injuries and death.
