Under the right circumstances, people can recover damages when a defective or faulty product injures them. This is called product liability. Generally, an injured party can sue and recover from any seller in the distribution chain. Thus, the manufacturer, distributor, and even the retailer are potentially liable for product-caused injuries. It is not necessary to have actually purchased the product in order to sue; non-purchasers are protected when they are foreseeable users (e.g., one roommate injured by the other roommate’s faulty hair dryer).
Damages are recoverable under several legal principles in product liability cases, including misrepresentation, negligence, strict liability, and breach of warranty. There are fine distinctions among these categories. If a defective product injures you, contact a lawyer immediately.
