Product Liability

Product Liability

Dangerous or defective products injure thousands every year. When someone is injured by a product, product liability claims are used to hold manufacturers financially responsible for the damage.


A ‘product’ is anything designed, produced, marketed, and sold to the general public. The manufacturer and vendors are responsible to inform/warn the consumer of hazards associated with their product and protect them from preventable injury.


There is no federal product liability law. Product liability claims are state laws, based on negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty. Liability for a defective product can fall to any party in the product’s chain of distribution, such as:

  • product manufacturer
  • parts  and components manufacturer
  • party responsible for assembly or installation of the product
  • wholesaler
  • retail distributor
