Product liability refers to the legal responsibility of those involved in the production, distribution, and sale of a product for any harm or injury caused by that product. This includes manufacturers, designers, wholesalers, and retailers. The theory behind product liability is that these parties have a duty to ensure that their products are safe for their intended use, and if they fail to meet this duty, they can be held liable for any harm or injury caused.

Product liability claims can arise from a wide range of products, including vehicles, medical devices, household appliances, toys, and food items, among others. Injuries can be caused by design defects, manufacturing defects, or inadequate warning labels or instructions.

The laws governing product liability vary from state to state, but they generally require proof that the product was defective or unreasonably dangerous, that the defect existed when the product left the control of the manufacturer, and that the defect caused the plaintiff's injury or damage.
