Product liability refers to the responsibility assumed by product manufacturers for designing, creating, and distributing safe products to consumers. If a manufacturer’s products are shown to be unsafe, then that product manufacturer might be held legally accountable for the injuries and/or illnesses that are caused through handling or using the dangerous product. While any industry can produce unsafe or defective products, there are certain ones which are more commonly reported to have issues with their products.
4 Industries Often Implicated In Product Liability Cases
While every product manufacturer assumes responsibility for its products, several industries in the U.S. tend to fail in fulfilling this responsibility more often than others. Four industries that are often implicated in product liability cases include:
- Food Products / Containers
- Equipment / Machinery
- Childcare Products and Toys
Unfortunately, these four industries release products that lead to the harm of innocent consumers and for the manufacturers to face product liability cases. Because of the greater use that these industries also see, it’s even more important that these manufacturers ensure that the products they release on the market are safe and not defective.
