Products liability refers to the legal responsibility of manufacturers and sellers for placing a defective product in the consumer’s hands. Annually, defective products cause thousands of injuries in the United States. The law requires that products meet the ordinary expectations of consumers. When products fail due to defects, they violate these expectations. Each state has its own consumer protection laws covering negligence, strict liability, and breach of warranty.

California Product Liability Laws

California’s product liability laws encompass negligence and strict liability. Negligence cases require proving the manufacturer’s negligence in the product’s creation or manufacturing. Strict liability allows pursuing a case without proving negligence. This covers three main defect types: inherent design flaws, manufacturing errors, and marketing defects. Liable parties can include manufacturers, component part makers, assemblers, wholesalers, and retail stores.

Types of Product Defects

Product defects fall into three categories:
  1. Inherent Design Flaws: Products flawed by design before manufacturing. For instance, an electronic device catching fire due to sun exposure indicates a design flaw.
  2. Manufacturing Errors: Defects occurring during manufacturing or assembly, such as a child’s toy missing a crucial safety component.
  1. Marketing Defects: Inadequate marketing, such as insufficient safety warnings or incorrect labeling.
