In layman’s terms, product liability refers to the legal duty that manufacturers, distributors, advertisers and, in some cases, retailers have in order to take reasonable steps to ensure that their products are safe for their intended use.
What this means for people who have suffered serious injury or the loss of a loved one due to a dangerous or defective product is that the law may be on your side. In these situations, you have a right to seek compensation.
