According to the law, all manufacturers of products owe a duty to consumers to make their products safe. When manufacturers breach this duty, injuries may result. People can sustain life threatening injuries or even die as a result of these injuries. Consequently, the manufacturers of these defective products must be held accountable for the lack of safety of their products and provide compensation to the injury victim.

Types of Product Liability
There are three specific kinds of defective product liability. In a design defect case, the entire design of the product is defective. For example, this occurs where the manufacturer of an automobile designs an entire line of a new car in a way that all of the brakes fail on the entire line of cars. Conversely, there are manufacturer’s defect claims. This occurs where one product in an entire line does not work as its intended purpose. For instance, if a food manufacturer allows bacteria to enter certain packages of food which makes consumers become sick, this is a manufacturer’s defect, as it does not impact the entire line of the food. Finally, there are also product liability cases based upon marketing where there is a failure to warn consumers. This occurs where the label does not warn the customer from realizing the dangers or risks inherent in the use of the product. For example, ingesting a prescription medication that will have severe side-affects and might lead to death. You can find more information here from the Consumer Products Safety Commission.
