Who Can Be Held Liable for a Defective Product?

Parties that may be held liable for a defective product:

Manufacturer

The manufacturer of the product is often the primary party liable for defects in the product. This includes both the company that designed the product and the company that produced it. Manufacturers have a legal duty to ensure that their products are safe for their intended use and are free from defects. Liability may extend to defects in the product’s design, manufacturing process, or labeling.

Distributor or Retailer

Distributors and retailers that sell the defective product may also be held liable for injuries or damages caused by the product. While they may not be directly responsible for the design or manufacturing of the product, they must ensure that the products they sell are safe for consumers. Liability may arise if they knew or should have known about the product’s defects but failed to take appropriate action.

Wholesalers

Wholesalers that distribute products to retailers or other businesses in the supply chain may also be held liable for defects in the products they distribute. Like distributors and retailers, wholesalers must ensure that the products they distribute are safe for consumers and may be held liable if they are aware of defects but fail to address them.

Component Manufacturer

In cases where a product contains defective components or parts supplied by another manufacturer, the component manufacturer may be held liable for defects in those components. This can include parts such as electrical components, safety devices, or other components that contribute to the overall functionality of the product.

Designers or Engineers

In cases where a product’s defect is related to its design rather than its manufacturing, the designers or engineers responsible for the product’s design may be held liable for resulting injuries or damages. Design defects occur before the product is manufactured and can lead to inherent dangers or hazards in the product’s design.

Third-party Maintenance Providers

In cases where a product requires maintenance, repair, or service by a third-party provider, such as an independent repair technician or service center, the provider may be held liable if their actions or negligence contribute to a product defect or cause harm to consumers.

Types of Product Liability Claims

Product liability claims typically fall into three main categories:

  • Design defects
  • Manufacturing defects
  • Failure to warn or inadequate labeling

Design Defects

Design defect claims arise when a product is inherently dangerous or defective due to flaws in its design, making it unreasonably unsafe for its intended use. In design defect claims, the defect exists before the product is manufactured and affects all units of the product line. 

Examples of design defects include:

  • A vehicle model with a design flaw that makes it prone to rollovers.
  • A children’s toy with small detachable parts that pose a choking hazard.
  • A medical device with a design flaw that leads to complications or injuries in patients.

Manufacturing Defects

Manufacturing defect claims arise due to products that contain defects that occurred during the manufacturing process, making them more dangerous than intended. The defect may result from errors in production, assembly, or quality control procedures.

Examples of manufacturing defect claims include:

  • A batch of medications contaminated during the manufacturing process.
  • A car with a defectively installed braking system.
  • A consumer product with missing or improperly installed safety features due to assembly errors.

Failure to Warn or Inadequate Labeling

Failure to warn or inadequate labeling involves products that lack proper warnings, instructions, or safety information, making them unsafe for use or failing to adequately communicate the product’s risks to consumers. Even if a product is properly designed and manufactured, manufacturers may still be held liable if they fail to provide sufficient warnings about potential hazards associated with the product’s use.

Examples of failure to warn or inadequate labeling claims include:

  • Prescription medications with insufficient warnings about potential side effects or drug interactions.
  • Household cleaners without warnings about corrosive chemicals or proper usage instructions.
  • Power tools without warnings about potential hazards or safety precautions.

Types of Defective Products

Common types of defective products include:

  • Vehicles
  • Medical devices
  • Pharmaceutical drugs
  • Children’s toys and products
  • Household appliances and electronics
  • Consumer products
  • Industrial machinery and equipment
  • Food and beverage products
  • Cosmetic products
  • Building materials and construction products

Types of Injuries Caused by Defective or Dangerous Products

The types of injuries commonly sustained in accidents caused by defective or dangerous products include:

  • Burn Injuries
  • Broken bones/bone fractures
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Crush injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Electrical injuries
  • Chemical exposure
