What are the three types of product liability?

When you use a consumer product, you are reasonably able to expect that it should not cause harm to you or someone you love. However, sometimes products do not follow these expectations. There are three basic types of product liability:

  • Negligence – this applies when carelessness on behalf of the manufacturer causes injury.
  • Strict product liability – this involves proving that manufacturer is responsible for a dangerous product, and they should have expected harm.
  • Breach of Warranty – this relies on proving that the manufacturer broke a written or implied promise.

The nuances between the three types of product liability can be confusing. Therefore, if you or someone you know has been injured by a defective or unsafe product, you should contact a personal injury lawyer to help you fight for your rights.
