Product liability is the area of law dealing with liability on the part of the manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer of a product that causes injury or harm. This can also include the maker of component parts of the product, the assembler, the store or other seller of the product, and perhaps even other people in the distributive chain. You can be a victim even if you weren’t the purchaser of the product.
Each year in the United States, there are thousands of deaths and millions of injuries due to unsafe products. There are also hundreds of billions of dollars spent on the deaths, injuries, and property damage of these incidents. Seemingly harmless products that families use regularly could potentially cause injury. Product liability laws allow consumers to recover damages that result from a defective or ill-conceived product. Nearly all products are subject to these laws, from food, drugs, appliances, cars, blood, tobacco, real estate, medical devices, medical implants, and commercial planes.
