about product liability cases. . .
Product manufacturers may be held strictly liable for harms, losses and injuries caused by goods they sell that are unreasonably dangerous. It is not necessary to prove that there was negligence involved in the design or manufacture of a particular product, only that when put to its intended use, the product at issue (say a bicycle frame) was unreasonably dangerous due to some design or manufacturing defect. Manufactures will only be able to avoid strict liability if they can prove that the injury was due to some misuse of their product, or that the user was aware of the danger yet assumed the risk and proceeded to use the item any way. Even if one of those circumstances was at play, an injury victim may still proceed against a product manufacturer under a negligence theory.
