Type of product liability claim:
- Negligence: A basic negligence claim consists of proof of: (1) a duty owed, (2) a breach of that duty, (3) an injury, and (4) that the breach proximately caused the plaintiff’s injury.
- Strict Liability: Rather than focus on the behavior of the manufacturer (as in negligence), strict liability claims focus on the product itself. Under strict liability, the manufacturer is liable if the product is defective, even if the manufacturer was not negligent in making that product defective.
- Breach of Warranty: Breach of warranty-based product liability claims usually focus on one of three types: (1) breach of an express warranty, (2) breach of an implied warranty of merchantability, and (3) breach of an implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose.
- Consumer Protection: In addition to the above common law claims, many states have enacted consumer protection statutes providing for specific remedies for a variety of product defects. Statutory remedies are often provided for defects which merely render the product unusable (and hence cause economic injury) but do not cause physical injury or damage to other property; the economic loss rule means that strict liability is generally unavailable for products that damage only themselves.
