Is the area of law in which manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers, and others who make products available to the public are held responsible for the incidents those products cause.

A products liability claim is usually based on one or more of the following causes:

  • * Manufacturing or Production Flaws – a claim that some part of the production process created an unsafe defect in the resulting product.
  • * Design Defect – a claim that the design of the product is inherently unsafe.
  • * Defective Warnings or Instructions – a claim that the product was not properly labeled or had insufficient warnings for the consumer to understand the risk.
