The most basic right we have as consumers is that the products we purchase are safe. Unfortunately, that is not always the case and many people suffer horrible injuries and even death due defective products every year. Generally, liability to those to either manufacture or distribute such products comes by way of a manufacturing defect, a design defect, or a simple failure to warn. Hazardous or potentially hazardous products are supposed to be properly labeled to warn the consumer and with particular specifications for use.
To determine whether a product is “defective” under legal definition and who may be liable for placing that product in the stream of commerce can be difficult. While manufacturers of the product may be at fault so may those that market, design, and sell the product to put it into the hands of the consumer.
