Product liability cases are prevalent among the countless number of court cases tried in the United States each year. In the majority of them, the plaintiff claims that the defendant was, in some way, negligent, causing an injury to the plaintiff. Some ways a defendant may be negligent are through design, manufacture, or upkeep. A plaintiff must be certain, when bringing a suit, that he is not in any way responsible for his own injury. Product liability is something that every business needs to be aware of, so that it can take steps to ensure that it will never be involved in one of these cases.
