What Is Product Liability?

Product liability refers to the legal responsibility of manufacturers who make, distribute, and sell products for any injury the product may cause. When manufacturers fail to uphold their duty to provide safe and effective products, the maker of the defective product may be liable for the resulting harm. Product liability cases typically fall into one of three categories: design defects, manufacturing defects, and marketing defects.

Design Defects

This category pertains to flaws in a product’s design that make it inherently unsafe, regardless of how well it is manufactured or marketed. If a product is deemed unreasonably dangerous due to its design, the product’s designer could be held responsible for any resulting injuries.

Manufacturing Defects

These defects occur during the production process. They are errors or mishaps during the manufacturing process. Manufacturing defects may apply to products in certain batches or lots.

Marketing Defects

Manufacturers have a legal duty to warn consumers adequately of any foreseeable hazards a product poses when used as directed. If consumers do not receive sufficient information about potential risks or specific usage instructions to avoid harm, any resulting injuries could be the basis for a product liability lawsuit.

Common Types of Defective Product Cases

Product liability cases can take many forms. At Younce, Vtipil, Baznik & Banks, P.A., our product liability attorneys have experience in dealing with a variety of these cases, including:

North Carolina Product Liability Laws

The North Carolina Product Liability Act (Gen. Stat. § 99B) defines product liability laws that protect consumers. You should not be saddled with medical bills after an injury caused by a defective product. To establish liability in product liability claims, an injured person must substantiate the manufacturer’s negligence and financial liability.

Demonstrating these requirements is critical to navigating a product liability case:

  • Negligence in design, production, or distribution – The plaintiff may need to show that the defendant was negligent in one or more aspects of the product lifecycle.
  • A safer alternative design existed – The plaintiff may need to demonstrate that the defendant neglected to adopt a safer design alternative when such an option was reasonable and feasible. This failure must have significantly increased the risks of harm without impairing the product’s use or appeal.
  • Failure to warn about a dangerous condition – In some cases, the plaintiff may need to prove that the defendant knew or should have been aware of an unreasonably hazardous condition associated with their product. The defendant’s failure to warn adequately about potential risks of foreseeable harm may be held against them in a product liability case.
  • Product failed to perform as intended – If a victim suffers injuries while using a product that failed to perform as expected, this could be grounds for a product liability lawsuit.

North Carolina typically requires injured parties to file product liability claims within three years of the injury.
