When we speak of product liability we are talking about the liability of any party or indeed all parties that are involved in the manufacture of a defective product and for any damage that has been caused by the said product. These are the parties that are usually involved when it comes to product liability:
- The company that manufactured the component parts of the product
- The manufacturer who assembled the product
- The wholesaler
- The final retailer of the product or the store owner
Many times when a product is defective it causes the end user harm. It is termed defective when it has been produced and sold commercially by its manufacturer but it is dangerous to the end user if he or she uses it as the directions instruct, or it is not fit to fulfill the purpose for which it is intended. Sometimes it is said to be defective if the instruction manual accompanying it is not adequate. Or if the product has been designed incorrectly or manufactured or assembled dangerously.
If you or your loved one has suffered injury to your person due to handling a product that is defective, then you may be eligible for compensation for those injuries. The compensation may include a medical expense provision, compensation for lost wages and even for pain and suffering.
