According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, each year millions of consumers sustain injuries or even death as the result of defective products allowed on the market. Many of these injuries could be avoided if the manufacturers or distributors of these products took additional steps to ensure consumer safety.
"Product liability" is the area of law in which manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers, and others who make products available to the public are held responsible for the injuries those products cause. A product liability lawsuit may be a consumer's most effective weapon against unreasonably dangerous products since manufacturers of these products are liable for design defects, improper safety devices and manufacturing defects that cause injury. Often times safety improvements are only implemented after the companies are faced with numerous product liability lawsuits.
