What Is Product Liability?
Product liability provides compensation to those who have been wrongly injured by a defective product. Depending on the situation and type of defect, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer, wholesaler, or distributor.
Defective products aren’t only tangible items you can purchase at a store, product liability can also include:
- Intangible items such as gas, electricity, etc.
- Writings (blueprints)
- Real estate
Types of Product Defects
- Manufacturing defects – This type of defect is caused during the assembly process and is not intended to be part of the product—usually only affecting a small portion of the company’s manufactured goods.
- Design defect – If there was a flaw in the blueprint of the product, it can cause the product to be hazardous to those using it. Unlike a manufacturing defect, this would affect all of the company’s manufactured products.
Filing a Defective Product Claim in Boston
When it comes to determining the specific type of product liability involved, there are three basic options:
- Strict liability – It does not matter how careful you are, the mere fact that the product is defective holds the other party liable for your injuries.
- Negligence – One or more parties in the manufacturing chain was negligent and caused the product to be defective, which resulted in your injuries.
- Breach of warranty – Either written or expressed verbally, in advertising or in person, a warranty tells you that the product should be safe for its intended use. If the product is defective, the warranty is breached and another party can be held liable for your injuries.

Product Liability and Inadequate Warning Labels
Product liability claims aren’t solely for defective products that may have caused you harm. If you or someone you love has been injured because of a manufacturer’s lack of warning or inadequate warning labels, you have a lawsuit!
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is responsible for maintaining rules and regulations for safety symbols and product safety labels. According to ANSI, a warning label should:
- Inform the consumer of existing hazards
- Inform the consumer of the severity of the risk involved with the particular product
- Inform the consumer of the effects of the hazard
- Inform the consumer how to avoid the hazard
If you weren’t warned about the dangers of an electronic product, children’s toy, or any type of manufactured product, which resulted in an injury in the Boston area, contact the product liability lawyers at Taurus Law Group today!
