WHO CAN BE HELD RESPONSIBLE?

When a consumer sustains an injury due to a defective product, a number of parties may be held liable for releasing a product they knew or should have known posed a risk to users.  If someone has been injured due to a defective product, they may have grounds for a lawsuit. Lawsuits may be brought against the manufacturer, wholesaler or distributor, depending on the type of defect.  Defects often fall into two different categories: manufacturing and design defects.  Lawsuits may also be brought for failure to warn of potential risks.
