Products Liability Committee
The primary mission of the MDLA Products Liability Committee is to provide a forum for learning and sharing of information regarding current trends and developments in the area of product liability defense work.
Product liability is the area of law in which manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers, and others who make products available to the public may be held liable for the injuries those products cause. Although the word "product" has broad connotations, product liability as an area of law is traditionally limited to products in the form of tangible personal property, such as an appliance, a medical device, or a vehicle. Product liability claims include, but are not limited to claims of design defects, manufacturing defects, and marketing defects (i.e. failure to warn). These claims are commonly brought under theories of negligence, strict liability, breach of warranty and various consumer protection laws.
The committee has a committee-specific listserv of nearly 200 local defense attorneys with a wealth of experience in products liability litigation. You can share information with other members on your committee, ask a question, and get feedback right away.
