What is Product Liability?
Product liability holds manufacturers or retailers responsible for any harm or injury their product may cause to consumers. The product which caused the harm must be manufactured or sold by the person you are attempting to sue. The product must have a defect and that defect must be the cause of the injuries. A product should meet the ordinary expectations of a consumer. However, when the product fails to meet the expectations of an ordinary consumer or is thought to be dangerous, the product is said to be defective and unreasonably dangerous.
