Products liability litigation typically involves a product user’s injury or death
caused by a defective product. A product can be defective for a number of
reasons, including: defects in design, defects in labeling, defects where a
risk is known by the manufacturer but not warned of, or defects where a risk
is known of by the manufacturer but is improperly warned of.
Both sellers and manufacturers of products can be held liable for defective products. Seller and manufacturer liability, however, can be lessened or eliminated if a product user was injured or killed because they misused the product or failed to follow product warnings and instructions. While manufacturers and sellers have a burden of not putting a defective product into commerce, a product user must still use the product as it was intended.
