What is Product Liability?
Product liability is the area of law in which consumers can bring claims against manufacturers and sellers for products that injure people. To sue for product liability, you only need to show 1 of 3 things to hold the manufacturer Liable. You need to show that either they built the product badly- a manufacturing defect they designed the product badly- a design defect or they didn’t warn you about a risk or danger associated with the product- a failure to warn. By digging into the details of what caused harm and how, product liability law provides straightforward ways to establish who is liable for injury.
Consumer Protection Act - Product Liability
Product liability is about making product manufacturers liable when a defect in their product has caused injury or harm to another person. Common law tort of product liability when framing it in the guise of negligence, in that the manufacturer of a product was negligent in causing the product to be defective and that negligence has caused harm to an individual. The following elements need to be established: • Duty of Care • Breach of the Duty • Causation • Damage or Injury The problem is proving the product was defective and establishing that the duty of care had been breached. Following the introduction of the Consumer Protection Act 1987 there is now strict liability tort for Product Liability. Part 1 of the Consumer Protection Act 1987 implemented the European Community Directive on Liability for Defective Products 1985 (85/374/EEC) which enshrined the notion of strict liability for defective products into UK Law. This means if a product was faulty, the manufacturer of the product would be automatically be liable for any harm caused by that defect whether he or she was at fault or not. Section 2(1) of the Consumer Protection Act 1987 damage is established when there has been “any damage”. This means any person who suffers injury is entitled to claim, not simply limited to the person who bought the product. Section 5 of the Consumer Protection Act 1987 excludes the following kind of damage from the strict liability tort of defective products: • Loss or damage to the product itself • Damage to business property not ordinarily intended for private use • Property damage valued under £275 Defences against Product Liability are detailed in the Consumer Protection Act 1987: • If the defendant did not supply the product to another – e.g. if the product had been stolen • If the defendant did not supply the product in the course of business – e.g. if it was a gift • The product was not defective when it was supplied

The law of contract will also provide relief to the consumer in relation to defective products; legislation such as Liability for Defective Products act 1991, the Civil Liability Act of 1961 and other more modern European legislation including directives and regulations. Liability For Defective Products Act 1991 Under this act the consumer does not need to prove negligence on behalf of the supplier or retailer; he/she merely needs to show that the product caused the consumer damage because of a defect in the product. Liability For Defective Products Act, 1991 2.—(1) The producer shall be liable in damages in tort for damage caused wholly or partly by a defect in his product.

What does the term Product Liability actually mean?  0189
So what does the term 'product liability' actually mean? The term product liability means that a product that's on the market has a defect in it that causes injuries or death to people. And what that means is that, a product isn't either designed or it's incorrectly manufactured. So that when it reaches the market, it is defective and it causes an injury or the death to someone. In California, we use what's called the Reasonable Consumer Expectation Test, which says that, if a product doesn't behave or function like a reasonable consumer would expect it to have worked, then that product has a defect in it. And under law, a plaintiff or the heirs of someone who's died, can bring an action against the manufacturer, seller or distributor of that product. Other cases that involved very technical products might use a different test called the Risk-Utility Test. And in those types of cases where the product is very scientific or there's a lot of technology to it, that a reasonable juror wouldn't understand, the court uses some balancing factors. It's the risk of the product causing harm versus the utility that that product provides to society. And they weigh those things against each other to determine whether or not that product is defective. So, that's generally what we mean in California by a defective product.

Product Liability
Product Liability Product Liability- it’s part of the law of torts that covers redress for injuries caused by defective products. The product is defective then there may be some degree of product liability involved. Tort- not a dessert or pastry, that is a private wrong committed by one person against another person or his or her property. A corollary concept of torts and product liability is negligence. Negligence- type of tort that involves either intentional or negligent action that causes injury so intentional or accidental action that causes some sort of injury. Previously, there was a law that stood in the way in terms of protecting customers under product liability law. Caveat Emptor- means let the buyer beware. Meaning when you buy something from a merchant, then you’re responsible to make sure that’s a good product. That is not on the merchant, that is on you, the consumer. There was a very narrow interpretation of the doctrine of privity, which said that consumer could only sue the party that sold them the product. Doctrine of Privity- Let’s say for example you buy a car from a dealership. Let’s say you buy a Ford car from a Ford dealership, and you’re driving down the road and the car’s wheel fell off/blows off, turn into a wall. Something that obviously, a car shouldn’t do. Under the doctrine of Privity, you can only sue the dealer that sold you the car, not Ford that manufactured it. So that also held up early stages of consumers. Warranty- contract in which the seller agrees to the nature of or product. Express warranty- an explicit claim made by the manufacturer to the buyer. Example: If you buy a car and it says we guarantee this car will not break down within the first 50,000 miles and it’s all written down in a contract, you can look it up, see what it is, then you’re good to go. Implied warranty- unwritten and it’s considered a common-sense understanding or rising out of a buyer’s reasonable expectations. And we use these terms so this is how lawyers make their money because nobody really knows any of that means. For example, if I had a car I would generally speaking expect a car to drive normally, straightforward fashion and not have the wheels to fall off, crash, etc. If the car have any of these bad things happen, then I could try to establish some sort of a liability against the manufacturers. Strict Liability- anyone who engages in dangerous activity is liable for damages to others even if they’re really taking time doing things under the utmost care. For example: Let’s say you were in a circus and you’re working with lions and lion handling is an inherently dangerous activity even if you’re extra careful and all of the sudden that lion breaks out of the cage and mauled to a bunch of people, you would still be liable because lion handling is apparently dangerous. The key to strict liability is that the injured person does not need to prove negligence to prevail in court. You don’t need to prove that they’re negligent when they’re handling the lions, you were mauled, therefore they are liable. -Under strict liability, the injured party must only prove that the manufacturer or the business owner had a product that was made in a defective condition that made it unreasonably dangerous to the user. The seller was in the business of selling such products and you didn’t change it from its original manufactured condition. -There are certain costs and benefits associated with the United states very extensive legal system. The legal system in the U.S. really makes it easy for plaintiffs to win large damage awards for product makers and it’s pretty much unique among developed countries. In fact no where else in the world would you find such a favorable environment to the consumer. -The cost side is that it inflicts about 900 billion dollars on society annually or about two and a half percent of our GDP, it’s a huge cost. But there are good things associated with that, dangerous products have been taken off the market, their sales have been restricted or they’ve just been redesigned. The threat of a lawsuit and the high liability of insurance cost means that companies regularly drop high risk products.

What is a Product Liability Case?
A product liability is the type of case where someone has been injured or killed as a result of a product. The product is a consumer item such as a ceiling fan, automobile, truck or a piece of industrial equipment. They are considered to be any products that are manufactured and put out to the marketplace to be purchased and consumed by the American public. If those products have been designed and/or manufactured in an unreasonably dangerous condition and a death or injury has occurred as a result, the manufacturer is held liable. The causes of action available from a product liability case in Tuscaloosa or anywhere else in Alabama is against the manufacturer or distributor building on its role in the chain of distribution.

What must be proven in a product liability case?
What must be proven in a product liability case? In California, we use typically the consumer expectation test to determine whether or not a product is defective. So in some cases, all that's required is the plaintiff to tell the facts of the story, and what happened with the product. And the jury, from using their own commonsense and judgement, can decide that that product did not behave or function like a reasonable consumer would have expected it to. And that's all it's required. In other cases, expert testimony might be required to help a juror determine whether or not that product functioned or behaved like a reasonable consumer would have expected it to have behaved. For example, in a case involving a durable waterproofing spray which comes in a can. That product is a very simple product, and when one sprays it, inhales the contents of the gas mist accidentally, or by mistake, then that product didn't behave like a reasonable... I'm sorry... And that product causes a lung injury. A reasonable consumer would not expect that using that spray and inhaling it accidentally would cause a lung injury. So in a case like that, the plaintiff might just hope that a jury would see that a reasonable consumer wouldn't expect to be injured by spraying this durable waterproofing product. However, a good plaintiff's attorney would probably hire a pulmonologist or some other medical doctor to help show that the contents within the spray get into the lungs and cause scarring of the lungs. So those are some of the things that we use in California, typically expert witness testimony, to help prove that the product is defective.

Clarion Safety Systems is in a unique position to supply product manufacturers, workplaces and public areas with the most up-to-date, standards compliant safety signs, labels and markings. We follow the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z535 standards to help establish a national uniformed system for hazard recognition. ANSI was founded in 1918 where their mission is to enhance global competitiveness of business and quality of life, within the U.S. Attorney and product liability expert, Cal Burnton, explains how warnings and failure to warn is the battleground in product liability lawsuits. Tragic accidents, costly litigation, and damage to corporate reputation can be avoided by implementing effective, standards-compliant warning systems and safety labels on products and in the workplace. Contact Clarion today to learn more about how Clarion can help to meet your duty-to-warn requirements with compliant safety signs and labels: http://www.clarionsafety.com/Contact?utm_source=YT&utm_medium=Vid&utm_content=Battleground&utm_campaign=S-YT-14 Visit us online: https://www.clarionsafety.com/?utm_source=youtube.com&utm_medium=social-organic&utm_content=iso-symbols&utm_campaign=youtube2014 Connect with us: Twitter: https://twitter.com/clarionsafety Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/company/clarion-safety-systems Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/clarionsafety Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/clarionsafety/ Video Transcript: [00:00:04] One of the most famous product liability cases at subject of debate is the McDonald's coffee case. Everyone knows coffee is hot, however, did people realize that if you get hot coffee that's hotter than the norm on you, the hazard is such that it can cause severe skin injuries. So it wasn't that the hazard wasn't apparent, it was the severity of the harm was not readily apparent. The fact is McDonald's had hundreds of claims of very serious injuries and burns and the allegation against it was that it didn't care about the safety of people using its product. You have to have a good design but that's not going to prevent accidents from happening. Warnings and failure to warn is the battleground in product liability losses. I don't think there's been a product liability suit that's been filed where there wasn't some aspect of warnings at issue. Exhibit one in a products case should always be the safety brochures, the warning labels that accompanied the product. The company gives the user all of the information that the user needs to safely use the product. One, what is a hazard, two, what are the consequences of coming into contact of the hazard, and three, how to avoid the hazard. The fact that someone has misused the product and caused harm, then is not the fault of the company, because the company provided the information necessary to safely use the product. If the warnings and the labels are not adequate, if they're sloppily made, if they're poorly written, if they're grammatically incorrect, if they look like a legal document, it's gonna be much more difficult for the company to win the court case. If it's well done it's a huge step in resolving the case before it even gets to go to trial. The first place a manufacturer should look in trying to put out an effective and adequate warning is the ANSI Z 535 standards. [00:02:04] A-N-S-I, ANSI. It stands for the American National Standards Institute. Now ANSI Z535 is a committee within ANSI that standardizes safety signage. The overall purpose of the ANSI Z535 committee is to establish a national uniform system for hazard recognition. So people can see a sign or label or tag or a barricade tape and automatically understand that's something to do with safety. Without standardization, it would be all over the place. The ANSI Z535 committee is made up of between 40 and 45 people from all different walks of life. So they have the product manufacturers there, you've got the government bodies there, the Consumer Product Safety Commission's represented on the committee. We're using human factors research, we're using court opinions, and we're using the experience of the committee members and practically applying these standards out in the field. [00:02:58] The ANSI Z535 standard will carry weight in a court of law because it's been recognized as the standard that's required for manufacturers in designing warnings and instructions for their products. The jury will be able to assess the fact that the company was aware of the ANSI Z535 standards and took steps to meet them. The attorney for the injured party will point to those standards and will argue that a company which fails to meet the ANSI Z535 standards has acted in a negligent a careless or potentially even reckless manner. If a company wants to successfully defend itself it has to convey to a jury that it is a responsible company and a good corporate citizen. ... [00:04:32] and the damage to your corporate reputation.

Visit us online at http://www.molllawgroup.com For free consumer safety information, visit http://www.legalnewsnetwork.com/ Last year there were almost 18,000,000 vehicle recalls. Ford, Chrysler, General Motors, Toyota and Honda rounded out the top five on that list. According to the National Highway Traffic Administration, there were more recalls in 2012 than the entire number of vehicles sold that year. Though many accidents are caused by negligent drivers, often times accidents are the result of vehicle defects. Rollovers, defective tires, faulty seat belts and air bags are just some of the defects that have caused debilitating injuries and deaths. Most, if not all products liability cases are preventable if companies would simply take action sooner to remove the product and warn consumers of possible defects. Historically, litigation and the civil justice system have been the only force to consistently increase safety standards, reveal concealed defects and deter manufacturers from cutting corners on safety to increase their profits. As a result of the litigation in which my firms were involved, defective products were removed from the market and stricter laws and regulations were created to hold companies accountable for their actions to prevent future injuries and save lives.

What can you do when you're injured after purchasing a seemingly harmless consumer product, like a clothes dryer or Christmas lights? It happens more often than you might think.

What is Product Liability?
http://www.lawmed.com/cases_we_handle/defective_product/index.php What is product liability? When a person is injured while using a product—any type of product—a good attorney will want to investigate whether there was a problem in the way the product was designed or manufactured. If so, then the injury might have been prevented if not for the defect. If you sustained a serious injury due to a product that malfunctioned or broke, you may want to consult with an attorney. A product liability lawyer will investigate the facts of the case, find out if other people had also been injured by the same product, and figure out whether your injuries were the result of a defect in the product. In this video, HensonFuerst partner David Henson answers basic questions about product liability and defective products. *** Principal Office of Henson & Fuerst, PA: 2501 Blue Ridge Road, Raleigh, NC 27607 *** If you have additional questions about product liability injuries, feel free to visit our website at http://www.lawmed.com/, and don't forget to look at some of our other videos at http://www.youtube.com/hensonfuerst/. What is product liability? Hi, this is DH with HF Attorneys in North Carolina. While my wife, Carma Henson, and I were getting dressed this morning, her curling iron started sparking and smoking. With catlike reflexes, she quickly unplugged it, dispersed the smoke, and averted all sorts of bad things that could have happened us or to our house. Then, like the well-trained lawyer she is, Carma proceeded to rant that the curling iron was brand new, and that she wanted her money back for that piece of junk. I, on the other hand started thinking about what could have happened had it injured someone in our family, or if it had burned down our down. Then, I thought, let's use this piece of junk to educate folks about Product Liability law and what it is. So....here goes: A defective product is any product that a manufacturer or distributor knew, or should have known, would cause injury in its normal course of use. A claim usually results from either a design defect or a manufacturing defect. Design defects typically focus on the creation phase of the product: • how it was thought up and developed • how it was intended to be constructed and manufactured • whether the designers considered the likely uses of the product • how the designers considered potential failures of the product. Claims relating to the manufacturing phase of the process may relate to: • inadequate quality control • use of substandard materials in construction • assembly of materials in a manner inconsistent with design specifications • how the product was distributed. So, in the context of the burned curling iron, we don't really know what caused it to catch fire and start smoking. Had the injury or damage been severe enough, we could hire an accident reconstruction engineer to take it apart and figure out what happened to it. These independent experts are unbiased scientists who can figure out whether any design, manufacturing, or structural defects occurred in the manufacture of the product. One of my favorite tasks as a lawyer is to go to the offices of accident reconstruction engineers while they are testing defective products. There is nothing quite so entertaining as watching engineers try to make curling irons, toasters, or other defective products catch fire, fail, or break because of shoddy workmanship, construction, or design. Another thing that we do in defective products cases is check whether other people were also injured while using the product. Defects tend to occur more than once, so we start by locating other instances of similar injuries in similar circumstances so that we can build upon the case that we are trying to piece together. In the end, products liability cases are both interesting and challenging. We enjoy knowing that we are helping to improve the safety of products sold in our communities, and it is gratifying to work for clients who need our help in rebuilding their lives. If you have additional questions regarding product liability cases, go to our website at www.lawmed.com . As for me, well...it looks like my job is to try and get our money back for this piece of junk.

How to win product liability cases in Virginia
Product liability law governs the liability of manufacturers, designers, distributors, wholesalers, and retailers of defective products. Virginia is ranked consistently by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce as one of the top two or three pro-business states. One reason is that Virginia’s product liability laws generally favor manufacturers over injured consumers. For example, Virginia does not recognize the theory of strict liability. Moreover, some of our federal court judges seem to have forgotten the Erie doctrine, and are applying product liability law derived from published opinions from other states. Thus, if you have been injured by a defective product, it is extremely important to entrust your case to an experienced Virginia products liability lawyer who not only has mastered Virginia products liability law, but also knows about the traps and pitfalls of practicing in Virginia’s federal courts. Our firm recently resolved for $2 million a products liability case that had been turned down by another firm. Michael Phelan is a former chairman of the Products Liability Section of the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association and is a sought after lecturer and author on products liability law. Indeed, Mr. Phelan is in the process of writing a chapter for an upcoming Virginia products liability treatise. Phelan Petty, PLC has handled successfully cases involving defective bridge construction devices, meat grinders, after-market gun accessories, paintball guns, table saws, products containing lead paint and other toxins, asbestos-containing products, airbags, after-market motor vehicle lift kits, dental products tainted with benzene, blood products, blood thinning medications, blood clot filters, prescription drugs (including Baycol, Fen-Phen, and Zyprexa), and medical devices (including denture adhesives, Sulzer hip implants, and DePuy hip implants). Unreasonably dangerous products injure thousands of people every year. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, about 30 million personal injuries and 22,000 deaths are caused by defective products. We are currently investigating and handling the following products liability cases: - Xarelto, a blood thinner causing uncontrollable bleeding events - IVC Filters, which migrate or break and cause internal damage - Takata airbags, which rupture and cause shrapnel injuries - GM and Chrysler ignition switch cases If you have been injured by a defective product, please contact the Virginia products liability attorneys at Phelan | Petty, PLC. 6641 West Broad Street, Suite 406 Richmond, VA 23230 (866) 249-3164 Toll Free (804) 980-7100 Phone www.phelanpetty.com

Uncovering product liability
Beasley Allen Report host Gibson Vance welcomes his law partner at Beasley Allen, Graham Esdale, to discuss product liability law. Graham began his law practice with the Jefferson County District Attorney's office, working cases involving child and sexual abuse and homicide cases. He says whether working with the victims of violent crime, or practicing product liability law, you are working with people in crisis. In many product liability cases, people are seriously injured or killed, and Graham says it means a lot to him to be able to help people in these difficult circumstances. Product liability cases most often deal with manufacturers who create a defective or dangerous product, and sometimes with dealers and retailers who sell the defective product. Attorneys investigate the circumstances surrounding how a person is injured by a defective product to determine who is at fault for the condition of the product. Many times, injuries on the job or in a single-vehicle accident may be traced back to a defective product.
