Product liability holds the vender or manufacturer of defective goods accountable for all injuries caused by the product. Legally, product liability falls into two main categories:
If a product was designed properly, but something went awry in the production process (manufacturing, packaging, and sale), it is a manufacturer’s defect. Things can go wrong with the equipment, the process used to mix materials that make the product, assembly of the parts, or with the product’s inspection process.
When the product has a design flaw, the problem may start with the prototype, the testing process, or the failure to implement safety precautions and features in the development stage. Sometimes, the manufacturer or seller simply fails to warn users of known dangers associated with normal wear and tear on the product.
