What is product liability?

Posted on Monday, June 4th, 2012 at 9:26 am    

Product liability occurs when the manufacturer of a specific product is held liable for the product’s damaging nature that causes potential harm to a customer.

There are three different types of product liability. These types include:

  • Defect in the product
  • Defect in the manufacturing
  • Failure to warn customers

When a product causes harm to numerous consumers, an official product recall may have to be enforced in order to keep the general public safe. Product liability can be a serious issue, and defective products need to be reported immediately.

If you have been injured due to a hazardous product, you may be entitled to compensation for your suffering. Please contact the product liability lawyers of the Abel Law Firm by calling 405-239-7046 today.
