The Basis for a Product Liability Lawsuit in California
Product liability lawsuits are based upon two legal theories in California: strict liability and negligence.
Here is the difference between the two:
- Strict liability: This allows the victim to sue the manufacturer without having to prove negligence as long as the product had an inherent design flaw, a manufacturing error, or a marketing defect.
- Negligence: This requires that the victim proves the manufacturer was negligent in the creation or manufacturing process of the defective product.
As an example, if a children’s toy caught on fire due to being left out in the sun, the company could be sued on the basis of strict liability in the form of a design flaw.
On the other hand, if the company did not clearly regulate the manufacture of a toy, was lenient in their safety protocols, or lacking in their training procedures, the company could be sued on the basis of negligence.
