Examples of Common Product Liability Claims
“Product liability” refers to a situation where a manufacturer or seller can be held legally responsible for injuries or death caused by its products. A product liability claim is based on evidence that the plaintiff's injury was proximately caused by some type of design flaw or manufacturing defect.
Some of the most common product liability claims involve:
- Defective auto parts
- Dangerous children's toys
- Contaminated food products
- Hazardous building materials
- Dangerous pharmaceuticals
- Defective medical devices
Consumers cannot sue manufacturers for all injuries sustained in relation to their product; however, if the consumer was using the product according to its intended purpose and the injury was a result of a defect, the victim or surviving family members may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit.
