In many cases, products fail to perform as the manufacturer intended, or fail to perform when used by a consumer in a reasonably foreseeable manner. In other cases, a product fails to be accompanied by warnings sufficient to notify a consumer about a hidden characteristic of the product that is dangerous. When a product is defective in one or more of these ways and a consumer is injured, the manufacturer may be liable.
Many factors may be involved in a defective product reaching and injuring a consumer. In some cases, only the manufacturer may be responsible. In other cases, a distributor, wholesaler, local retailer, or general contractor may also be at fault for the sale or use of the product.In some instances, it is a medical device that is deemed defective and should be treated as a product liability suit rather than a case of medical malpractice.
