What Is Product Liability?

Product liability law determines which party or parties are responsible for serious injuries caused by defects in a product’s design or manufacture.  When a product possesses a potentially hazardous flaw that leads to consumer injury, the product’s designer, manufacturer, distributor, and retailer can be held liable for the injury.  There is no federal product liability law, and claims are generally based on state laws pertaining to liability and breach of warranty.  Responsible parties can be charged with negligence, failure to warn of the potential for harm, sale of a product with a manufacturing defect or design defect, and a number of other charges.

Defective Products – Types Of Cases

Some of the most commonly filed defective product claims in NYC involve:

Injuries caused by defective products in the workplace are the basis of many product liability claims.  These injuries often result from construction accidents, faulty equipment or machinery, and failure to warn of potential hazards posed by heavy equipment.

Motor vehicle accidents, including cartruck, and motorcycle accidents, can occur because of defective auto parts – for example, a flaw in an automobile’s air bags, seatbelts, or engine that causes it to malfunction on the road, resulting in an accident.  Authorities may recall defective automobiles in order to prevent accidents.

Injuries caused by dangerous drugs and other consumer products are among the most common sources of product liability claims.  In recent years, experts have identified numerous potentially unsafe medications (e.g., Accutane® and Fen-Phen) and products (e.g., certain toys and food items).

And Other Consumer Products

Proving Fault In A Product Liability Case

In product liability cases, the legal theory of strict liability applies.  Under this theory, the injured must prove that the product was “unreasonably dangerous,” that it caused injury while being used in its intended manner, and that it had not been changed significantly from its condition at the time of sale.  Strict liability operates only against manufacturers and sellers who regularly sold the defective products to consumers; second-hand re-sellers may be exempt.
