Technology is helping to prevent defective product injuries with information on recalls being made available electronically to businesses. This puts retailers in a better position to avoid a potential product liability claim.
Retailers now can easily find press releases from the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which is important because retailers can be found liable for defective products.
Retailers will be able to access information such as:
- product type;
- brand name;
- product description;
- company name;
- location of manufacturer;
- recall dates; and
- UPC codes (if applicable and available).
Retailers Liability in a Product Liability Claim
Even if they did not manufacture a defective product, a retailer can be held liable for injuries that result from a defective product. It is important to recognize that when filing a product liability claim, anyone who is involved in the product's chain should be named as a defendant.
