Under products liability law the manufacturer, distributor, seller and/or installer may be liable for injuries caused by a defective product.
The world is filled with products which are carefully designed and manufactured with the safety of the user or consumer in mind. But what happens if a product has a defective design or something goes wrong during the manufacturing or assembly process which results in a defect which causes serious injuries? The manufacturer of the product may be liable for your damages, and additionally the manufacturer of a component part, an installer, and/or a retailer may bear responsibility as well, under the products liability law.
Sometimes a manufacturer will issue a recall, which is done when a company is aware that a defect in the product exists. In many cases, this happens after the product has caused injuries or deaths and it is deemed to be unsafe for continued use.
Almost any product can cause injuries, but some of the more common products which have caused serious injuries that resulted in products liability cases, include the following:
- defective airbags
- defective tires
- gas pedal defects
- defective seatbelts and/or component parts
- defective sports equipment
- dangerous defective toys
- unsafe medications
- lack of warning of medication side effects
- faulty machinery
- tobacco products
- e-cigarettes (vaping products)
