Products Liability / Strict Tort Liability

Products Liability uses a theory of Strict Tort Liability to hold a manufacturer responsible for injuries caused by defective products, regardless of negligence or privity.

The elements of liability are:

  1. A product contained a defect;
  2. The defect in the product caused an injury; and
  3. – The defect existed when the product left the hands of the manufacturer.
