First of All, What is Product Liability?
In Simple words, Product liability is the area of law in which manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers, and others who make products available to the public are held responsible for the injuries those products cause. Product liability refers to a manufacturer or seller being held liable for placing a defective product into the hands of a consumer. Responsibility for a product defect that causes injury lies with all sellers of the product who are in the distribution chain. In general terms, the law requires that a product meet the ordinary expectations of the consumer.
If a consumer is seriously injured or killed by a product that was not safe or did not carry sufficient warning, the manufacturer can be held legally and financially responsible for those injuries.
