When discussing product liability, it is important to differentiate between products that are dangerous and those that simply do not do what they are supposed to do.
Defective products, which can include anything from new cars that break down during the first 1,000 miles to computer hard drives that destroy data, are an issue of consumer fraud, not product liability.
Dangerous products are an issue of product liability because they endanger personal safety. Manufacturers and sellers of products have a duty imposed by law to provide those products with every element necessary to make them safe for their ordinary uses and to ensure that the products they sell do not contain anything that would cause injury to the user.
