Products Liability

Another distinct area of law related to negligence is products liability. A person may bring a products liability action when the person suffers physical harm as a result of an unsafe product. In this type of suit, the injured person attempts to prove that the manufacturer of the product is at fault for the unsafe condition of the product. One basis for proving that the manufacturer is at fault is by proving that the manufacturer was negligent in the production or distribution of the product. Where a products liability suit is based on allegations of negligence, the plaintiff must prove that the manufacturer failed to exercise reasonable care in the design or manufacturing of a product or failed to provide adequate warnings regarding potential dangers associated with the product.
