Protzman Law Firm has a breadth of experience in product liability litigation. Product liability refers to a manufacturer or seller being held liable for placing a defective product or products into the hands of a consumer. Ultimately, responsibility for an injurious product defect lies with all sellers of the product who are in the distribution chain.
When individuals are harmed by an unsafe product, they may have a Cause of Action against the persons who designed,manufactured, sold, or furnished that product. In general, consumer-friendly laws have changed over time from a feeling of caveat emptor (the principle that the buyer alone is responsible for checking the quality and suitability of goods before a purchase is made; “let the buyer beware”) to one of strict liability for manufacturing defects that make a product unreasonably dangerous. “A manufacturer can be held liable for negligence if lack of reasonable care in the production, design, or assembly of the manufacturer’s product caused harm. For example, a manufacturing company might be found negligent if its employees did not perform their work properly or if management sanctioned improper procedures and an unsafe product was made” (product liability. (n.d.) Collins Dictionary of Law. (2006). Retrieved June 22 2016 from http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/product+liability).
