Manufacturers, assemblers, distributors, and sellers in New York retail stores may be held liable for the harm caused by a defective consumer product. Product liability law is based on the principle that those who make, market, and sell consumer products have a responsibility to ensure their products are safe when used as intended. If a product is inherently dangerous, there must be a clear warning.
Manufacturers, distributors, retailers, and others involved in the sale of goods to the public may be held liable when it is shown that a product was defective and the defect caused someone's injury.
A product liability lawsuit may be based in a product's design defects, faulty manufacturing, and/or flawed marketing of the product, or on the failure to warn about the dangers posed by an inherently dangerous product.
Types of defective products that may be the subject of a product liability lawsuit include:
- Automotive products
- Children's products
- Construction and Building products
- Household products
- Medical devices
- Pharmaceutical products
- Recreational vehicles
