Design, Manufacture And Warnings Can All Give Rise To A Cause Of Action
In basic terms, under the theory of product liability, a manufacturer, distributor or seller of a product is liable to those who are injured by their product.
Products do not need to be completely accident proof, however, they do need to be free from hidden or concealed dangers.
Whether it's a toy, food item, car part, or household appliance, there's a duty to adequately design, test, and inspect them all before placing them into the hands of consumers.
In many situations, however, such measures are not taken. The design of a product, the way it's manufactured or the warnings provided may be inadequate and can rise to a cause of action if injury or death occurs.
