Products Liability

Product liability encompasses the liability of a manufacturer, processor, or nonmanufacturing seller for injury to the person or property of a buyer or a third party caused by a product which has been sold in a defective condition.  Excluded from the concept of products liability are claims relating to the failure of a product to live up to expectations of a customer or user.  Also, excluded are cases based on injuries suffered in connection with an item which is not a product, or a product not alleged to be defective or potentially dangerous.
