What is product liability?
Product liability is defined as a product which is unreasonably dangerous to the consumer. Product liability encompasses design defects, manufacturing defects, and failure to warn of known dangers.
A defective product can result in sickness, infection, injury, and death. Products can break, fall apart, fail to protect you, or contain germs/parasites that cause illness. In circumstances like these, the product manufacturer or seller could be liable for placing the faulty product into the hands of a consumer if they did not take the proper steps to ensure product safety.
