A typical product liability cases falls into one of three categories:
Any party involved in the introduction of a product into the marketplace has an explicit duty to ensure that the product is safe. If the product was not safe and causes injury then those involved with bring the product to the market may be liable. This includes designers, manufacturers, distributors, marketers, and vendors, as well as the party responsible for warning consumers of any dangers that may be associated with a product. If a person or company is found to be negligent in this duty to consumers, there may be grounds for a product liability lawsuit.
In product liability lawsuits based on claims of negligence, it is necessary to prove that a person or company acted unreasonably. However, in a strict liability case, there is no requirement to prove intent or fault on behalf
of the defendant, it is only necessary to prove that the product in question is unsafe or defective and that it caused harm to the plaintiff(s).
Any time when a company is found to have violated its own guarantee related to the performance or quality of its product, a breach of warranty product liability lawsuit claim may arise. Breach of warranty claims apply to both express guarantees (like a guarantee that a product is safe) as well as implicit promises that lead a consumer to assume a product is safe to use.
