The following are some examples of products that can cause serious injury or even wrongful death:

Product Liability Law
Products liability law covers three types of product defects:
- Flaws in the design of a product
- Error in the manufacturing process
- Defects in marketing
If a product poses a danger that a manufacturer or someone in production could foresee, that product can be considered defective. Injury can still occur even if a product is manufactured and designed correctly, but if it is proven that a product was dangerous enough to cause injury, manufactures can be held liable under the law of products liability.
When a defective product causes injury, this can mean a products liability case. Defective products are those that are found to be unreasonably safe when used for what it is intended. A product’s intended use involves any use that a wise person would normally use that product for while taking into consideration its labels, warnings and features. Products liability cases can involve a lawsuit against the manufacturer, the distributor or wholesaler and the retailer.
