Liability in a claim involving defective products can be found with the manufacturer, designer, retailer or any other party playing a role in making or selling the product. In some cases, there may be more than one responsible party.
Liability for defective products can take a number of forms, including:
- failure to warn of dangers or hazards;
- defect in the manufacturing of the product;
- defect in the design of the product;
- insufficient or incorrect labeling; and
- selling a product that has been recalled.
These are just some examples of the types of liability that may apply to your case.
