Products Liability-Manufacturers Are Responsible For Dangerous Products

Products should meet the ordinary expectations of consumers. If a product is defective and dangerous, then the designer, manufacturer and/or seller can be held accountable for any injuries or deaths that result. There are a number of different types of product liability cases.
Defective in Design: In a design-defect case, the dangerous product is in the condition intended by the manufacturer, but the design itself is unsafe.
Defects in Manufacturing: In a manufacturing defect case, the product’s design was safe, but the way the product was actually manufactured did not comply with those designs. The result is an unsafe product.
Defective Warnings: Some products are highly useful but “unavoidably unsafe: because there is no way to manufacture the product in a safer way while retaining its useful characteristics. In those cases the manufacturers are required to warn the consumers about the potential dangers of their products. For example, many medicines are “unavoidably unsafe” because even if they work properly they produce side effects. In these cases, the manufacturer is liable whenever it fails to attach proper warnings and instructions regarding those side-effects.
