Injury From Defective Products
When a product designed, manufactured, and marketed by a third party enters an individual’s home, the third party manufacturer is responsible for ensuring that its products are safe for consumption and use. They also must document any potential dangers associated with their products. This area of law is called product liability.

Understanding Product Liability
In general, product liability cases are broken into three categories: design defects, manufacturing defects, and marketing defects. These defects refer to mishaps in the various stages of the product’s life.
Design defects are errors in the makeup of the product, manufacturing defects are errors that occur while the product is being assembled, and marketing defects are the manufacturers’ failure to disclose potential dangers associated with the product.
