How can negligence lead to product liability?

When products are made, there are certain procedures that need to followed in order to create a quality product. When these procedures are skipped, it can cause a mistake during the production process. This can cause problems since the product can become defective.

These situations can display negligence on behalf of the manufacturing company. Negligence can lead to product liability cases.

When this occurs, individuals can seek legal action against the company that made the defective product.

How can failure to warn play a part?

Certain products have labels that warn consumers of potential dangers while using or before using them. These products, such as hair dryers, have warnings that tell individuals to avoid wet surfaces since combining water with these products can cause the potential for harm.

With these warnings on products, it can avoid a number of accidents that may occur when an individual uses a product. If a product does not have a warning label on it and it causes injury, an individual may be able to hold the company responsible for a failure to warn them.
