Products Liability Law
 
London Law Group protects consumers from harm caused by products that are placed in the stream of commerce by manufacturers and distributors that are unreasonably dangerous to their health and safety. This includes defective drugs, defective devices, and toxic torts. While products are generally thought of as tangible personal property, products liability has stretched that definition to include intangibles (gas), naturals (pets), real estate (house), and writings (navigational charts)

There are various theories of liability that can be brought under a product liability claim: negligence, strict liability, and breach of warranty of fitness (depending on the state law where the claim is brought.)  

Liability can be imposed on any or all parties in the manufacturing chain of any product for damage caused by that product which includes manufacturers of component parts (top of the chain), an assembling manufacturer, the wholesaler, and the retailers. There are three types of product defects that incur liability in manufacturers and suppliers: (1) design defects,  (2) manufacturing defects, and (3) defects in marketing.
 
The law of products liability is found mainly in common law (state judge-made law) and in the Uniform Commercial Code. Article 2 of the UCC deals with the sales of goods and it has been adopted by most states. In it, the most important products liability sections are the implied and express warranties of merchantability in the sales of goods §§ 2-314 and 2-315.
