Negligence and defects in the design or manufacture of a product may result in serious injuries. When this happens, the maker of the product is liable, or responsible by law. This is what is generally referred to as products liability. Examples of defective products causing serious injury are as varied as the types of products sold and used across our country. Defective vehicles and their parts are sometimes found to cause serious injuries and death on our roads. Defective aircraft design and manufacture are also capable of causing enormous and tragic loss. Defective products continue to be discovered every day, resulting in recalls of everything from pharmaceuticals to lawn mowers, child safety seats to toys – just to name a few – all capable of causing life-changing injuries to unwary purchasers and users.
Without the right to pursue products liability claims without limitation or restriction, defective products might never have been discovered and ordinary citizens would be forced to bear the cost of these injuries while the manufacturers of the products continue to profit. The products liability law protects not only innocent purchasers of defective products but also those who can reasonably be expected to come near enough to be injured by them.
