Who is responsible for a dangerous or defective product?

| Apr 14, 2020 | Products Liability |

Victims of a dangerous or defective product may wonder who is responsible for the impact of a dangerous or defective product they have suffered. It is important for victims injured by a dangerous or defective product to be familiar with the legal remedies available to them and who may be liable for the damages they have suffered.

To protect the public from dangerous or defective products, the legal process provides thorough protections from harm by holding a variety of parties potentially liable for harm suffered by victims of dangerous or defective products including:

  • The manufacturer of the dangerous or defective product;
  • The manufacturer of component parts of the dangerous or defective product;
  • The party assembling or installing the dangerous or defective product;
  • The wholesaler of the dangerous or defective product; and
  • The retailer who sold the dangerous or defective product to the consumer.

Products liability is an area of the law that protects victims of dangerous or defective products. Dangerous or defective products can include toys, appliances, cars, farm equipment and even pharmaceutical drugs. Types of product defects can include design defects, manufacturing defects and marketing defects. Dangerous and defective products can cause serious harm to victims.

A personal injury claim for damages can be brought based on products liability when the victim has been harmed by a dangerous or defective product. Products liability provides important legal remedies to victims to help them with their physical, financial and emotional damages when they have been injured or otherwise harmed by a dangerous or defective product. Consumers and the general public have the right to feel safe when using everyday products which is why products liability legal resources exist to protect them.
