Who Can Be Held Liable in a Defective Product Claim?
Multiple people are responsible for ensuring the safety of a product before it reaches consumers. Designers must design products that are safe to use. Manufacturers must ensure that the product is made correctly with quality materials. Marketers, wholesalers and retailers must provide proper labeling, instructions, and warnings. When any of these parties do not meet their responsibilities, people can get hurt.
Examples of Defective Products
Product liability applies to any product sold to the public, including:
- Dangerous drugs
- Medical devices and implants
- Vehicle crashworthiness
- Farm equipment
- Manufacturing equipment
- Power tools
Defective products can lead to injury in many ways. A medical device implanted in a patient may fail. A piece of equipment may explode or catch fire. A faulty auto part may stop functioning while a driver is on the highway, leading to a crash.
Victims of defective products can suffer a wide range of serious injuries that have a significant impact on their lives. They may face surgery, hospitalization, therapy and medication. Recovery may take months or even years. Some injuries may result in permanent disability. Victims may be unable to work temporarily, or permanently. Some may require lifelong care.
