What does Product Liability mean?

Product liability law refers to the liability of a manufacture, the wholesaler, and the retail store owner for injury caused by a defective product. If a product injures a person the plaintiff may bring a claim based on negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty. There is no federal products liability, but many states have implemented products liability statutes. There are three types of product defects that incur liability against manufacturers and suppliers: design defects, manufacturing defects, and defects in marketing. Product liability claims are generally considered strict liability claims, and it is not necessary for the plaintiff to prove that any party in the supply chain was negligent or exercised great care, only that the product was defective.
