Product liability arise when the product produced is unfit for its intended use, dangerous or harmful for normal use, does not carry adequate instructions for its use, or inherently dangerous due to defective manufacture, design or labeling.
Design defect – a car brand that tips over easily whenever negotiating a corner can be due to high centre of gravity. This can be attributed to bad design.
Manufacturing defect – a brand of mineral water is found to have exceeding high amount of chlorine. People who consume the water may fall ill.
Labeling defect – a brand of energy drink that works well for adults but not suitable for children under 10 and people above age 70.
The liability claim starts when the injured person is able to establish a link between you (the manufacturer and/or supplier and/or distributor and/or retailer of that defective product) and that product which had caused the injury.
