Product liability is the area of law in which manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, retailers, and others who make products available to the public are held responsible for the injuries those products cause. Product liability refers to legal claims in which an injured party may recover some type of monetary compensation from the seller or manufacturer of a product. Product liability litigation arises from a range of circumstances in which a specific product or product use comes under examination. Analysis of product liability claims normally involves determining how the product was used, what customers expected of the product, what representations were made to customers about the product, and the product’s failure rate.
