Product liability cases usually arise after a product that is being sold or distributed is deemed dangerous. This danger can be the result of a products lack of warning on the packaging, lack of instructions, or some fault in the products design.
Types of Products Subject to Product Liability Suits
Basically any manufactured good that is deemed unsafe or harmful can be the focus of a product liability suit. From prescription drugs to children’s toys, all manufacturers are responsible for making sure their goods are not harmful, dangerous or lethal.
There are of course exceptions. For example, pipe cleaning solutions can be harmful if ingested, but the warning on the label informs consumers not to consume the product and to keep it out of the reach of children. In this case the product CAN be dangerous, but is not deemed unreasonably hazardous.
