Strict Liability for Defective Products
Manufacturers, retailers, distributors, and other companies involved in the production and distribution of consumer products have a legal obligation to make sure that the products they create and market are defect-free. If they violate this obligation, they can be held strictly liable for any resulting injuries.
This means that, if you are injured by a defective product, you do not have to prove “fault” or “negligence” on the part of the manufacturer or other responsible party. You need only prove that you suffered harm as a result of their defective product.
Manufacturers and other companies have an obligation to:
- Produce products that are free from manufacturing defects. They need to be produced properly so they are safe to use and perform as promised.
- Design products that are reasonably safe to use. Products with unsafe or improper designs can malfunction and cause serious harm.
- Properly market products to the public. This also includes using warning labels and adding appropriate instructions for use.
