We hear about product liability lawsuits
every day, but many people don’t truly understand what the phrase “product liability” means. In simple terms, companies that manufacture consumer products have a legal responsibility to ensure the reasonable safety of those products. In some cases, and a climbing lanyard is a good example of one, a product may be designed to be used during an activity that carries inherent risk. In other words, anyone could be seriously injured while rock climbing, regardless of the equipment used. In these cases, the manufacturer has to create a product that is reasonably safe
when it is used as intended. It also must be reasonably difficult to accidentally use incorrectly. If a defect in design or manufacture, or a failure to warn of potential danger, causes injury or death
, then the manufacturer may be liable for the damages suffered by consumers.
