Why defective product liability claims are tricky
First there is the conundrum of who to sue. Everyone involved in the chain of distribution is a potential defendant. This includes the manufacturer, the wholesaler or distributor and the retailer. There is also the possibility of naming a corporation or a foreign entity as a defendant.
Then there is the question of which category the claim falls under: defectively manufactured products, defectively designed products or failure to provide adequate warnings or instructions. In the infamous coffee case above, the lawyer for the defendant argued the coffee was “defective manufactured”. It was the jury that decided the warning label was neither large enough nor sufficient enough to protect the consumer.
And finally, for a product liability claim to be successful, the plaintiff must prove that the product in question is defective and that the defect caused their injury.
