A defective product is one that is unfit for use and may cause harm, due to any number of reasons: poor design/design flaws, inferior materials used in manufacturing, dangerous elements/ingredients are present in the product, adequate instructions or warnings are not enclosed with/printed on the product.
Product Liability is the legal term for legal cases and insurance claims involving injury (or wrongful death) caused by a defective product. For example, if a child’s toy has a small piece that comes off easily and causes a toddler to choke, a product liability case can be opened.

WHAT THE INSURANCE COMPANIES DO
Whenever a defective product accident takes place and someone is injured, the insurance companies of the product manufacturers and distributors immediately prepare to defend their case. The entities that manufacture products are often big, powerful companies (think Proctor & Gamble, Pfizer, Firestone, Dell, Toyota, etc.) with heavy-duty insurance policies and attorneys. Make no mistake, they want to avoid paying big claims.
The insurance company being called upon to pay for this injury claim will look extensively for any reasons to deny the claim OR reduce it and pay out as little as possible. An insurance company representative may try to have you reach a swift (and low, unfair) settlement. This is why it is so very important to have highly skilled personal injury attorneys on your side – and especially, an attorney who understands defective product injury claims. The insurance companies have their own experts, their own attorneys, and this is what you are up against. It is not a fair fight, which is why injured parties hire injury attorneys to work their case. (Note that if multiple people are injured by the same product, this becomes a class action lawsuit.)
