Product liability law provides the victims of dangerous products with legal recourse for any injuries suffered. Any product is required to meet the ordinary expectations of a consumer. A product that has an unexpected defect or danger does not meet consumers’ ordinary expectations.
A number of different parties may be held liable for any injuries that result from the use of a defective product. For example, if a flaw in the manufacturing process creates a dangerous defect, the manufacturer may be held liable. This section includes a number of resources on design defects, manufacturing defects, defects in warning, and product liability law in general.
