What is product liability law, and when it is applicable?
Product liability law is the name for the area of law governing consumer products that cause injury or death. This field of law is designed to protect consumers from harmful or defective products. The fact is that thousands of preventable deaths (and many more thousands of preventable injuries) occur each year due to use of faulty products. When someone is injured while using a faulty product, the resulting injuries can mean significant pain, medical costs, job loss, and a variety of other social and personal losses (not to mention the possibility of death). When someone is injured or killed because a product they were using was manufactured in a faulty manner, they can bring a product liability action against and seek compensation for damages from the manufacturer.
