Products liability laws govern when – and whether – a person allegedly harmed by a defective product can receive compensation for his or her physical injuries. Courts recognize claims arising out of three basic types of defects: manufacturing defects, design defects and warning defects. Traditional products liability lawsuits can involve any combination of these defects, and the burdens of proof for each can vary according to the cause of action alleged by the plaintiff and the governing state law.
• Tort-based claims – In most instances, the primary cause of action is a tort-based claim, the most common of which are strict liability and negligence. In general, strict liability focuses on proof of a defect in the product, while negligence focuses on the manufacturer’s conduct. Some plaintiffs also allege fraud, but these claims are less common and more difficult to prove.
