Consumer Protection and Product Liability Law

Product Liability

The government has enacted laws that protect consumers and provide remedies when they are injured by defective products. Manufacturers have an obligation to make sure their products are safe when used as intended, and they must warn consumers of any risks associated with the use of their products. When this obligation is not met and you are injured as a result, you may be entitled to receive compensation through a product liability lawsuit.

Product liability laws hold all parties in the manufacturing chain accountable for their role in ensuring a product is safe. This includes:

  • Manufacturers
  • Product designers
  • Wholesalers
  • Retail store owners

Federal agencies such as the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have been established to regulate the safety of products sold to consumers. The CPSC issues warnings when products are found to be defective in an attempt to reduce the risk of injury to unsuspecting consumers.
