Product Liability for Product Defects
In order to sustain a product liability claim for product defects, the plaintiff must prove the following:
- There was a design or manufacturing defect in the product;
- The manufacturer failed to warn consumers of the possible risks associated with the product;
- The defective product caused the plaintiff’s injuries; and
- The plaintiff was using the product in the way it was intended to be used.
