Product liability falls under the legal responsibility of the manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers to the buyers and users of the defective product that causes damages or injuries.
There are three basic types of defects for a product liability claim:
- Manufacturing defects
- Design defects
- Insufficient instructions or warnings
Compensation from product liability claims can be based on the basis of negligence, breach of guaranty, and absolute responsibility.
There are typically four types of damages you can recover from product liability claims:
- Compensatory damages- medical bills, lost wages, property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium- damages compensating for the effect this had on your relationship with your spouse
- Punitive damages- awarding damages that punish the defendant
