What is Product Liability?
Product liability is the responsibility of a manufacturer, distributor, or seller of a product to do the following:
- Protect the user from injury by a product that is unreasonably dangerous or manufactured in a way that the danger is hidden or concealed from the buyer
- Test and inspect its product
- Make reasonable inspections or tests for latent or hidden defects in the products it sells
Types of Product Defects
There are three common types of product defects: design, manufacturing, and marketing defects.
- Design defects. Products have a design defect if there is something inherently unsafe in the design of the product that has nothing to do with the manufacturing process.
- Manufacturing defects. The product’s design is good, but the product itself is manufactured differently from its intended design.
- Marketing defects. A marketing defect occurs when the manufacturer of a product uses false advertising or fails to warn consumers about possible negative consequences associated with using the product, such as harmful side effects of a dangerous drug.
Common Product Liability Claims
While any defective product is subject to a legal claim, there are some products with ongoing litigation. Common product liability lawsuits include:
- Automotive products such as acceleration systems, airbags, brakes, fuel tanks, ignition systems, seat belts, and steering systems
- Children’s products including bunk beds, car seats, crayons, cribs, strollers, toys, and toy chests
- Construction and building products like ladders, scaffolding, power tools, asbestos-containing materials, and decks
- Household appliances and products such as fire alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, lawnmowers, and space heaters
- Medical products including artificial hips, knee implants, surgical and transvaginal mesh, and shoulder pain pumps
- Pharmaceutical products like birth control devices (IUDs), diabetes drugs, diet drugs, over-the-counter medications, statin (cholesterol) drugs, and vaccines
- Sports and recreation products, including ATVs and ROVs, amusement park rides, off-road motorcycles, personal watercraft (Sea-Doo, Jet Ski), pools and spas, and trampolines
