What is Products Liability?
Products liability also referred to as product liability, is when all parties involved in the manufacturing of a product that causes damage is held accountable. From the manufacturer that produces individual parts to the manufacturer that handles assembly, and even the wholesalers and retailers.
If defective products cause harm to a consumer, the product would be subject to a products liability claim. Our Chicago products liability attorneys have the experience and expertise to help you navigate this potentially complicated area of law. Schedule a free consultation with our law firm today.
Types of Products Liability Cases
There are a variety of products liability claims that can be made, including:
- Design Defects: Design defects occur during the initial stages of the manufacturing process, making them an inherent part of the overall product. These defects result in potential danger for anyone that handles the product. Liability surrounding design defects revolves around a foreseeable risk that occurred during the manufacturing stage.
- Manufacturing Defects: Another type of defect occurs during the manufacturing process. These defects typically only impact a handful of items versus design defects that impact the entire product. The manufacturer did not intend for the product to be defectively manufactured but it happened during their production process.
- Warning/Labeling Defects: Warning defects occur when the manufacturer of a product does not include the proper warnings on the product label. This includes warnings, descriptions, insufficient labeling, and more. Consumers may become seriously injured as the result of a warning or labeling defect.
