What Is a Product Liability Case?

When someone is injured or killed by a defective or unreasonably dangerous product, the victim or their family has the right to file a product liability lawsuit. Product liability cases fall into three categories:

Design Defect Claims

When a product is inherently dangerous due to a problem with its conception or design, rather than an issue that occurred when it was made—an example of a product with a design defect is a power tool with a safety guard that doesn’t prevent injuries.

Manufacturing Defect Claims 

With a manufacturing defect, it is typically a batch or a limited number of products that have a defect. Essentially, it is a problem due to defective components or when a product isn’t manufactured correctly, departing from its intended design. Some examples of manufacturing defects are using the wrong materials when constructing a product, including screws, bolts, and fasteners, or using harmful chemicals during the production process. 

Failure to Warn Claims

This type of defect is related to the instructions or marketing materials that come with a product or the lack thereof. An example of a failure to warn claim is failing to label a medication that warns of known drug interactions or failing to declare allergens on a food label.

Who Can I Sue for a Defective Product Injury?

There may be multiple parties liable for the injuries you sustain from a defective product. The parties that can commonly be held responsible are: 

  • The Manufacturer: If a product’s defect resulted from a design flaw or a manufacturing error, the manufacturer might be liable for any resulting injuries or property damage. 
  • The Wholesaler: Sometimes, a third party such as a wholesaler, supplier, or distributor can be held liable for the sale of a defective product. They are the “middlemen” between the manufacturer and retailer. 
  • The Retail Store: The retailer may not be involved in developing or manufacturing a defective product, but they may still be legally responsible for selling a defective or dangerous product. 

Other potentially liable parties can include outside consultants or contractors, engineers, product marketers, or any other involved in the distribution chain.
