Product Liability Law
Product manufacturers may be held liable if they failed to warn the public of hazards associated with use of their products. They have both a legal and a moral obligation to provide appropriate warnings on product labels and elsewhere. Under product liability law, product manufacturers, distributors, retailers – anyone who makes defective products available to consumers – can be held legally responsible for injuries and deaths caused. The three types of liability claims include product design defects, manufacturing defects, and the failure to warn.
Possible Injury-Causing Products
Defectively designed or manufactured products that could cause injury include the following:
- Children’s toys which could present a choking hazard or that could be manufactured with dangerous chemicals/paints
- Children’s furniture such as cribs which may cause asphyxiation or entrapment
- Household appliances which could overheat and cause fires
- Children’s clothing which may be made of flammable materials
- Ride-on toys such as motor scooters due to fall hazard
- Snow blowers due to fire hazard
- Electric heaters and wall-mounted fireplaces for fire hazard

Recovering from Injuries
Every year consumers are injured from using defective products. Some of those injuries include suffocation, poisoning, concussions from falls, burns, electrocutions, broken bones, lacerations, disfigurement, and many others. Recovering from serious injuries may take months, if not years, and some people’s lives will never be the same. It takes a lot of will to heal from an injury and it also takes a lot of courage to take a stand through legal action. The choice to file a claim or pursue a lawsuit is yours to make. However, it is important to have as much legal information about your legal rights and options as possible to make the right decision for your specific circumstances.
