The company who manufactures the product is normally liable for any defects that may be found in the product. If the manufacturer of a product is found to have been negligent in the production of that product, they are liable for any damages caused by their negligence, which includes any harm that may be caused by a defective product.
In some cases, it may be possible to hold an individual liable for the defects in their design or marketing of a product. If a company is found to have been negligent and to have failed to take precautions against a known defect, they are held liable for any damages caused by that defect. A company’s liability for a defective product will depend on the nature of the defect and the degree of negligence
