According to www.products-liability.lawyers.com, “Products liability is the branch of tort law that holds designers, manufacturers, and sellers responsible for the harm suffered by buyers and users of defective products.” Defects are defined as flaws in the design, manufacturing, or marketing of a product that could harm or kill a consumer. Defective product lawsuits may happen as a result of warranty obligations, negligence, manufacturing and design problems and insufficient warnings about the problems.

Product liability cases focus on two main ideas regarding a defective product: was there an injury from using the item, and was the product unexpectedly dangerous as well as defective. Product liability cases can include a car seat with handles that break during transport, a car with an airbag that fails to deploy, or harmful side effects from an improperly tested drug. There are three basic types of product defects: manufacturing defects, design defects, and insufficient instructions or warnings.
It takes an experienced attorney such as Mark Wolin to know the intricacies of who is responsible in a products liability case.
