The goal in a product liability claim is to prove that the accident was caused by some type of negligence on the part of the manufacturer. For example, the product may have been dangerous due to inherent design flaws. It may have been hazardous as a result of shoddy materials or defects in the manufacturing process. Perhaps the manufacturer did not perform adequate quality control to screen out defective units or to identify problems in the production line. Product liability claims may even involve misleading labeling or a failure to warn about known dangers.
