  • Video ~ Lawyer's Perspective on Product Liability Suits

Product liability refers to a manufacturer or seller being held liable for placing a defective product into the hands of a consumer.

A product liability lawsuit must be filed with the court within the period of time designated by each state. These time limits are called the "statute of limitations."

Defects in manufacturing occur when a product is improperly manufactured and departs from its intended design.
