In this country, we are accustomed to enjoying some of the best products in the world. Thanks to the many innovative people and businesses, consumer advocacy groups and others in the government devoted to protecting the consumer, we have come to trust the products we use every day.
However, the fact remains that we are exposed to unsafe products on a regular basis. Sometimes manufacturer’s defects go undetected until they cause serious injuries, or even death. Other times injury may be caused by an undiscovered design flaw. Because of this, many states have enacted comprehensive products liability statutes to protect the people from defective products that cause damage or injury to the consumer. There is a long line of businesses along the chain of supply that may be held responsible for damage caused by that product. Those businesses may include the manufacturers of component parts, assembling manufacturers, wholesalers, and retail stores.
