The law of product liability is the area of law that deals with the liability of the manufacturer, wholesaler or retailer of a product for injuries resulting from that product. This includes the manufacturer of component parts of the product, an assembling manufacturer, the wholesaler, the retail store or other ultimate seller of the product, and any other party in the distributive chain, regardless of whether you actually purchased the item yourself.
Defective products, such as dangerous toys, industrial machinery and equipment, improperly designed consumer products, automobiles, automobile partes including tires, and prescription drugs may cause significant harm if improperly designed or manufactured and if you have been injured as a result of such, you may be entitled to compensation.
Even if the defect is not due to any negligence on the pan of the manufacturer, the manufacturer can be held responsible for any damage caused by the defective product. The retailer may also be viewed are partially responsible for having canned and sold the defective product. A claim can even be brought against the person or company that was involved in producing or distributing the defective product.
