Who is held liable in product liability cases?

When the matter is an issue of faulty product liability (as opposed to strict liability, in which other involved parties along the chain of commerce might be held liable), the manufacturer of a given product can be held liable for claims arising out of injuries sustained and caused by manufacturing defects. Companies have a responsibility to the consumers who purchase their products; before an item is sold and released into the general public, it should be properly tested and approved for use. When a company fails to ensure that the products it is selling are safe, and when said products cause injury to the consumer who purchases them, the manufacturing company can be held liable for the resulting damages.
