When we purchase a product, we trust that it meets certain safety standards. As consumers, we expect that the products we buy will not cause harm. Sadly, this is not always true. Many defective consumer products cause serious injuries, ailments, or even death. Defective products include household items and appliances, foods, prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs, children’s toys, furniture, construction equipment, motor vehicles, and more. Product liability is the legal area that deals with disputes arising from the sale or use of defective products.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) regulates product safety and is responsible for investigating complaints about defective consumer products. The law requires manufacturers to follow safety regulations and to warn consumers about any potential risks associated with a product’s use. A corporation can be liable for injuries or wrongful death when it fails to follow regulations.

Common types of product liability cases are design defects, manufacturing defects, failure to warn, and marketing misrepresentation. Responsible parties in a claim may be the manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, or retailers, depending on the facts of the case. For example, there may be a design defect in a product causing harm to consumers. Or there may have been negligence in the manufacturing process. The distributor, wholesaler, or retailer may have made mistakes when they handled the product, causing harm to consumers. In many cases, there may be more than one defendant, and each is jointly and severally liable for a damage award.
