Products Liability

Product liability refers to a manufacturer or seller being held liable for placing a defective product into the hands of a consumer. Responsibility for a product defect that causes injury lies with all sellers of the product who are in the distribution chain. When a defective or dangerous product has injured you, potentially liable parties include: 1) The manufacturer, 2) The manufacturer of component parts, 3) The wholesaler and 4) The retail store that sold the product.

In general terms, the law requires that a product meet the ordinary expectations of the consumer. Products containing inherent defects that cause harm to a consumer of the product or someone to whom the product was loaned, given, etc. are the subjects or products liability suits.

Under the California law of strict product liability a manufacturer/supplier of a product is a guarantee of its safety. The manufacturer/supplier is liable for any harm that a defect in its product was a substantial factor in causing the harm. A defective condition, creating strict liability, is not limited to defects in the design or manufacture of a product. The manufacturer and supplier of a product must also provide such warnings and instructions as are necessary to inform the user or consumer of the possible risks of the product. The law of strict product liability concentrates on the safety of the product rather than on the reasonableness of the manufacturer and supplier’s conduct. The manufacturer/supplier may be liable for harm caused by its defective product even where it has exercised all possible care in the preparation and sale of its product.
