When you purchase a product, whether it's shampoo, weed killer or a band saw, you expect that the company selling you the product has made sure that it's not defective. When manufacturers and sellers of products fail to exercise reasonable care to make sure that their products are safe and accurately described, people can be severely injured and even killed.
In general, manufacturers and sellers have duties to their consumers and others impacted by their products described by products liability law. Though products liability law varies from state to state, generally, manufacturers or sellers of products may be held liable when their product contains a manufacturing defect or a design defect or when the manufacturer or seller has provided inadequate instructions or warnings with the product.
- Manufacturing defects are problems with how individual products were made. The manufacturer or seller of a product is often in the best position to test and inspect a product to make sure that it is safe before selling it to a consumer. Even if most of the products a manufacturer produces are safe, if a problem during the product's creation rendered one or more individual products unsafe, the manufacturer has breached its duty to test and inspect products and is liable to the consumer.
- Design defects are problems with how the manufacturer designed the product. If there was a safer alternative that a manufacturer could have used while producing their product, manufacturers may have a duty to use the safer option. For example, if a product design specified weak or otherwise inadequate materials, failed to include safety devices, or concealed dangerous parts of the product, a manufacturer may have had a duty to use a better design to prevent injuries.
- Inadequate instructions or warnings are problems with how the manufacturer informed the consumer of dangerous aspects of a product. Many products are dangerous, but consumers have a right to know how a product is dangerous. When a manufacturer or seller of a product fails to warn a consumer about the dangerous parts of a product or provides unclear or ambiguous instructions for how to use a product safely, the manufacturer or seller may be liable to the consumer for injuries that occur from using the product.
