What is Product Liability?

Product liability is a distinct and different thing from the concept of negligence. The concept of product liability focuses not on how someone actedi it focuses on the condition of a product that is sold to the public, and if that product is in a defective and unreasonably dangerous condition when it leaves the production line of the manufacturer. Product liability can be about three different things. It can be if the product has a design problem that makes it unsafe. It can be about if the product has a manufacturing fault or flaw that causes it to fail, and it can be about whether the product has a problem with inadequate or a lack of warnings or safety instructions so that the product’s dangers are not known or discovered.
