Summary

What happens if someone is injured or killed, or suffers health problems by using a product? Do people have a right to sue the manufacturers of such items? Through modern product liability laws, injured parties can make a claim in court, but such laws are often controversial. Before the 20th century, product lawsuits were rare, and injured consumers faced many legal barriers. Although it is now easier for people to recover damages, critics claim such laws are unfair to manufacturers. They also debate the proper standards for determining product liability and the kinds of rewards that should be rendered for damages. Product Liability explores these and other liability issues that affect the lives of every American consumer.
