Every year, many people suffer significant injuries or death as a result of exposure to defective products. Under the law, product manufacturers are equivalent to sellers. Sellers are not only liable for their negligence in manufacturing, designing and marketing products, but are also deemed the guarantors of the safety of their products under a theory of strict products liability.
Product manufacturers and the sellers of those products are responsible for defective design of a product, defects in the manufacturing process, and defects resulting from failure to warn of a product’s dangerous propensities. Manufacturing defects occur when end products are different from their intended design, and this defect causes injury or death. A design defect occurs when the design of the product itself presents a safety hazard, such as a lack of safety guards on certain power tools. A failure to warn occurs when the manufacturer’s warning or instructions, which would have served to warn the user of possible dangers, risks, or side effects associated with that product.
