Product Liability Law & Lawyers

You are allowed to make a product liability claim against the manufacturer of a faulty product that can be shown to have caused you personal injury. This covers a wide range of products; including, but not limited to, electrical goods, cosmetics, toys, furniture, equipment and all other dangerous, unsafe or defective products and goods.

If you believe you have a product liability claim for compensation, then please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left, or click here.

Product Liability Claims

The four main ways in which a manufacturer can be found to be at fault in a product liability claim are:

1. Manufacturing

If contamination has occurred in a factory or a batch of products has been damaged during the manufacturing process and the quality control procedure has not identified this and you have suffered injury as a result, the manufacturer is likely to be liable.

2. Design

If a product is poorly designed, such as a toy that has very sharp edges or a kettle that allows steam to escape around the handle, and you have sustained an injury as a result, you can make a product liability claim against the manufacturer.

3. Warnings

If a manufacturer fails to exhibit sufficient warnings on a product that is inherently dangerous, such as an electrical appliance, or a salesman has downplayed the warnings on such an item, then the company may well be found to be liable if you are injured as a result.

4. Failure to recall/announce warnings

If a manufacturer discovers a problem with a product that could cause personal injury and fails to announce warnings about the product and injury occurs as a result, a product liability claim could well be successful, if you are injured by the product.

Product liability claims are claims resulting from accidents caused by goods or products which have been supplied or work which has been carried out.

The types of accident which could result from defects in products are numerous and the following are some examples :-

  • Fire or injury resulting from faulty electrical goods
  • Injuries caused by by defective tools, knives and sharp or dangerous objects, etc
  • Road accidents caused by defective parts or faulty workmanship during repair or servicing
  • Food poisoning
  • Damage to teeth by foreign bodies in food
  • Injuries to children by unsafe toys
  • Products may cause accidents for a variety of reasons - defective materials or workmanship, defects in design, inadequate or misleading warnings or instructions, defective containers or packaging.

Product Liability Compensation

Anyone manufacturing or selling goods or carrying out work (eg. building work, repair work) may find themselves responsible to pay compensation to consumers injured by their products. Such liability may be at Common Law or under Statute eg. the Sale Of Goods Act and the Consumer Protection Act have provisions specifically intended to make it less difficult for injured consumers to claim against suppliers of defective products.

If you have suffered an injury and would like to know whether you may be entitled to compensation please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left, or click here.

If a business supplies products to consumers then they need to make sure those products are safe. Normally the responsibility falls square on the shoulders of the actual manufacturer of any product found to be defective. A manufacturer or producer can be a company that actually makes products, one that imports a product into this country or even businesses that customise other manufacturers products for their own stores. But stores and other retailers i.e. distributors also have responsibilities pertaining to the products that they sell on.

If you have suffered an injury and would like to know whether you may be entitled to compensation please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left, or click here.

Product liability compensation claims fall into four main categories which are :-

Defective Design :-

The product is inherently dangerous as a result of poor or inadequate design. Whilst some designs are clearly inadequate others can produce complex and difficult legal argument particularly in high value in product liability compensation claims.

Defective Manufacture :-

This is usually as a result of a quality control failure when a product or batch does not conform to the usual specification. Manufacturers are "strictly liable" in some product liability compensation claims as a result of defective manufacture and an injured consumer may, in certain circumstances, find it unnecessary to prove that they were negligent.

Defective Warnings :-

Are the warnings accurate and up to date and does the product information accurately reflect any dangers or risks associated with the product, or have they been contradicted by statements in advertising or made by sales representatives?

Negligent Surveillance :-

Companies must respond adequately when inherent defects come to light, subsequent to sale of the product, to warn consumers about the product's lack of safety. This may involve personal contact by letter or phone, advertisements in the press and other media and bill boards or A boards outside the retailers shop or premises.

Suzuki Australia Pty Ltd — Suzuki Grand Vitara SQ625 2.5L V6 MY1998-1999

Fri, 10 Jan 2020 00:00:00 +1100

Product description

Suzuki Grand Vitara SQ625 2.5L V6
Model Years 1998-1999
fitted with driver's airbag containing a NADI 5-AT inflator

111 affected vehicles

What are the defects?

The airbag inflators in these vehicles could allow moisture to enter the unit and degrade the airbag propellant. If this occurs, the properties of the propellant may be changed so that the propellant does not react as intended during an accident, causing misdeployment of the airbag.

What are the hazards?

If a vehicle with an affected airbag is involved in a collision, the airbag inflator could rupture, causing sharp metal fragments to enter the vehicle cabin at high speed and kill or injure vehicle occupants.

There is also a risk that the airbag may underinflate in a collision and may not protect the driver as intended.

What should consumers do?

Owners of recalled vehicles should stop driving their vehicle immediately and organise an urgent free inspection by contacting Suzuki Australia. Consumers can either call Suzuki Customer Care on 1800 777 088 or by visit https://www.suzuki.com.au/dealer-locator to find their nearest authorised Suzuki dealership.    

If the inspection confirms that a Grand Vitara contains an affected type of Takata driver airbag inflator and the vehicle is legally registered to be driven in Australia, Suzuki Australia will offer to buy back the vehicle, based on the current market value (as determined by an independent third party valuer appointed by Suzuki). Suzuki will also arrange immediate alternative transport measures tailored to each owner’s needs so that consumers can remain mobile while the buyback of the vehicle is being arranged. 

Consumers who own an affected vehicle that is not registered should also immediately stop driving their car and contact Suzuki on the above details. 

Due to the age of the vehicles, replacement airbag inflators are not currently available. 

Consumers who are unsure of whether they are affected by this recall can also use the Suzuki VIN look-up tool at ismyairbagsafe.com.au then follow the instructions on that website to determine if your vehicle is listed as having an affected airbag, or alternatively you may access a VIN list on the Suzuki website - https://www.suzuki.com.au/airbag_investigation, to determine if your vehicle is listed as having an affected airbag, or call Suzuki Australia Customer Care on 1800 777 088.

Honda CR-V
Model Years 1998-2000

Honda Legend
Model Years 1998-2000

fitted with a driver's airbag with a Takata NADI 5-AT inflator

33 289 affected vehicles

What are the defects?

According to the component supplier, the driver’s side airbag inflator in affected vehicles could allow moisture to enter the unit and degrade the airbag inflator propellant. If this occurs, the properties of the propellant may be changed so that the propellant does not react during an accident causing misdeployment of the airbag.

What are the hazards?

According to the component supplier, if a vehicle with an affected airbag is involved in a collision, the airbag inflator could rupture, causing sharp metal fragments to enter the vehicle cabin at high speed and kill or injure vehicle occupants.

The component supplier is also concerned that there is a risk that the defect could lead to slow deployment and not protect the driver as intended.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles should stop driving their vehicle immediately.  Owners of affected vehicles will receive a letter from Honda Australia asking them to contact the Honda Australia Recall Call centre on 1800 952 272 (Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 6pm AEST) to arrange for their affected vehicle to be towed to a Honda dealer. Any tow will be undertaken free of charge. 

Where the vehicle has a valid current registration for road use in Australia, Honda Australia will offer to buy back the registered vehicle from the owner at market value. Alternative transport options will be arranged by Honda Australia directly with the customer until the buy back process is completed.

Given the age of these vehicles, replacement parts are no longer in production and therefore are not currently available.  As a result, Honda is currently unable to repair affected vehicles at this time.

We also recommend you visit www.productsafety.gov.au/newsletter/subscribe to subscribe to receive updates about current and future recalls as they are published.

566 affected vehicles

What are the defects?

When the vehicle is operated in low temperatures, water in the catch tank and breather tube may freeze, blocking the tube. This can result in increased pressure in the crankcase, causing oil to leak from the engine head area.

In addition, debris may collect on a depressed area of the exhaust manifold at an opening in the exhaust manifold cover.

What are the hazards?

Oil leaking from the engine head area or debris accumulated in the exhaust manifold may ignite, creating a fire hazard and increasing the risk of injury.

What should consumers do?

Kawasaki Motors will notify all affected owners by direct letter or email and advise them to make an appointment for repair.

For further information, consumers are urged to contact their nearest Authorised Kawasaki dealer by using the following link https://kawasaki.com.au/dealer-locator/ or alternatively contact Kawasaki Motors Pty Ltd by using the following link, https://kawasaki.com.au/faqs/

Fitted with driver's airbag containing a NADI 5-AT inflator
Total affected vehicles = 17 650

What are the defects?

The airbag inflators in these vehicles could allow moisture to enter the unit and degrade the airbag propellant. If this occurs, the properties of the propellant may be changed so that the propellant does not react as intended during an accident, causing misdeployment of the airbag.

What are the hazards?

If a vehicle with an affected airbag is involved in a collision, the airbag inflator could rupture, causing sharp metal fragments to enter the vehicle cabin at high speed and kill or injure vehicle occupants.

There is also a risk that the airbag may underinflate in a collision and may not protect the driver as intended.

What should consumers do?

Toyota Australia will contact all affected owners to advise of this recall action. Owners of affected vehicles should stop driving their vehicle immediately and contact their nearest/preferred Toyota dealership or Toyota Australia by calling the Toyota Australia Campaign Helpline on 1800 987 366 (Monday to Friday, 8am – 6pm AEDT) to organise their free urgent vehicle inspection. You can find your nearest authorised Toyota dealership by visiting https://www.toyota.com.au/find-a-dealer

Vehicle inspection and alternative transport options will be arranged directly with the consumer, until the buyback process or airbag replacement is completed.
 
If a recalled vehicle is identified as containing the affected type of driver airbag inflator, Toyota Australia will offer to buy back vehicles registered for road use from the owner at current market value. Other assistance will be arranged on a case-by-case basis to minimise consumer inconvenience. Due to the age of the vehicles, replacement airbag inflators are currently not available. Once suitable parts are available, Toyota dealers will replace the airbag inflator. Replacement will be conducted free of charge.
 
Consumers who are unsure of whether they are affected by this recall can contact their nearest/preferred Toyota dealership or call the Toyota Australia Campaign Helpline at 1800 987 366 (Monday to Friday, 8am - 6pm AEDT).

Product description

Suzuki Grand Vitara SQ625 2.5L V6
Model Years 1998-1999
fitted with driver's airbag containing a NADI 5-AT inflator

111 affected vehicles

What are the defects?

The airbag inflators in these vehicles could allow moisture to enter the unit and degrade the airbag propellant. If this occurs, the properties of the propellant may be changed so that the propellant does not react as intended during an accident, causing misdeployment of the airbag.

What are the hazards?

If a vehicle with an affected airbag is involved in a collision, the airbag inflator could rupture, causing sharp metal fragments to enter the vehicle cabin at high speed and kill or injure vehicle occupants.

There is also a risk that the airbag may underinflate in a collision and may not protect the driver as intended.

What should consumers do?

Owners of recalled vehicles should stop driving their vehicle immediately and organise an urgent free inspection by contacting Suzuki Australia. Consumers can either call Suzuki Customer Care on 1800 777 088 or by visit https://www.suzuki.com.au/dealer-locator to find their nearest authorised Suzuki dealership.    

If the inspection confirms that a Grand Vitara contains an affected type of Takata driver airbag inflator and the vehicle is legally registered to be driven in Australia, Suzuki Australia will offer to buy back the vehicle, based on the current market value (as determined by an independent third party valuer appointed by Suzuki). Suzuki will also arrange immediate alternative transport measures tailored to each owner’s needs so that consumers can remain mobile while the buyback of the vehicle is being arranged. 

Consumers who own an affected vehicle that is not registered should also immediately stop driving their car and contact Suzuki on the above details. 

Due to the age of the vehicles, replacement airbag inflators are not currently available. 

Consumers who are unsure of whether they are affected by this recall can also use the Suzuki VIN look-up tool at ismyairbagsafe.com.au then follow the instructions on that website to determine if your vehicle is listed as having an affected airbag, or alternatively you may access a VIN list on the Suzuki website - https://www.suzuki.com.au/airbag_investigation, to determine if your vehicle is listed as having an affected airbag, or call Suzuki Australia Customer Care on 1800 777 088.

fitted with a driver's airbag with a Takata NADI 5-AT inflator

33 289 affected vehicles

What are the defects?

According to the component supplier, the driver’s side airbag inflator in affected vehicles could allow moisture to enter the unit and degrade the airbag inflator propellant. If this occurs, the properties of the propellant may be changed so that the propellant does not react during an accident causing misdeployment of the airbag.

What are the hazards?

According to the component supplier, if a vehicle with an affected airbag is involved in a collision, the airbag inflator could rupture, causing sharp metal fragments to enter the vehicle cabin at high speed and kill or injure vehicle occupants.

The component supplier is also concerned that there is a risk that the defect could lead to slow deployment and not protect the driver as intended.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles should stop driving their vehicle immediately.  Owners of affected vehicles will receive a letter from Honda Australia asking them to contact the Honda Australia Recall Call centre on 1800 952 272 (Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 6pm AEST) to arrange for their affected vehicle to be towed to a Honda dealer. Any tow will be undertaken free of charge. 

Where the vehicle has a valid current registration for road use in Australia, Honda Australia will offer to buy back the registered vehicle from the owner at market value. Alternative transport options will be arranged by Honda Australia directly with the customer until the buy back process is completed.

Given the age of these vehicles, replacement parts are no longer in production and therefore are not currently available.  As a result, Honda is currently unable to repair affected vehicles at this time.

Fitted with driver's airbag containing a NADI 5-AT inflator
Total affected vehicles = 17 650

What are the defects?

The airbag inflators in these vehicles could allow moisture to enter the unit and degrade the airbag propellant. If this occurs, the properties of the propellant may be changed so that the propellant does not react as intended during an accident, causing misdeployment of the airbag.

What are the hazards?

If a vehicle with an affected airbag is involved in a collision, the airbag inflator could rupture, causing sharp metal fragments to enter the vehicle cabin at high speed and kill or injure vehicle occupants.

There is also a risk that the airbag may underinflate in a collision and may not protect the driver as intended.

What should consumers do?

Toyota Australia will contact all affected owners to advise of this recall action. Owners of affected vehicles should stop driving their vehicle immediately and contact their nearest/preferred Toyota dealership or Toyota Australia by calling the Toyota Australia Campaign Helpline on 1800 987 366 (Monday to Friday, 8am – 6pm AEDT) to organise their free urgent vehicle inspection. You can find your nearest authorised Toyota dealership by visiting https://www.toyota.com.au/find-a-dealer

Vehicle inspection and alternative transport options will be arranged directly with the consumer, until the buyback process or airbag replacement is completed.
 
If a recalled vehicle is identified as containing the affected type of driver airbag inflator, Toyota Australia will offer to buy back vehicles registered for road use from the owner at current market value. Other assistance will be arranged on a case-by-case basis to minimise consumer inconvenience. Due to the age of the vehicles, replacement airbag inflators are currently not available. Once suitable parts are available, Toyota dealers will replace the airbag inflator. Replacement will be conducted free of charge.
 
Consumers who are unsure of whether they are affected by this recall can contact their nearest/preferred Toyota dealership or call the Toyota Australia Campaign Helpline at 1800 987 366 (Monday to Friday, 8am - 6pm AEDT).

Product Liability compensation claims

When a manufacturer releases a product to market they have a duty to ensure that the product is safe for use by consumers. If a product is unsafe, whether by virtue of its manufacture, composition, unsuitability for use, or because of inadequate instructions (amongst others), then the manufacturer, designer or sometimes the distributor will be liable for that fault.

To find out if you have a product liability claim for compensation, please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left.

In the past, it was necessary to show that the manufacturer is the one to blame for the defect and to prove that they were at fault. However, it is now possible for anyone injured by a product to make a claim, regardless of whether they were the original purchaser or not. Further there is now no requirement to prove the negligence of the manufacturer at any stage. This is how product liability claims differ from other personal injury claims, as other claims require there to have been some negligent act or omission on the part of the defendant in order to make a successful claim.


What Are Products?

‘Products’ for the purposes of product liability claims also include food and drink produce. Other products include consumer goods, pharmaceutical products and ‘bio-medical’ products, which are devices implanted into humans e.g. hip replacements, breast implants and pacemakers.

Product liability claims typically fall into four distinct categories. These are:

Manufacturing faults; in which the product is defective as a result of something that occurred, or failed to occur during the manufacturing process.

Failure adequately to warn; a product does not supply the consumer with any or adequate warnings about the correct or safe use of the product. This can include instructions, information on packaging and information in advertisements.

Design faults; although the product may be manufactured exactly to specifications there is a problem or fault with the design. Because of this, the product is inherently dangerous.

Negligent Surveillance; this is when a manufacturer, on learning that one or more of its products is faulty, fails to warn consumers about the problem with its products – either by issuing inadequate warnings or by not issuing warnings at all.

It is important to note that defective products are not merely of poor quality; indeed there are a number of issues that a court will consider when determining product liability claims.


Multi-Party Claims
Although each product liability claim is different, there are some situations in which many people are injured in the same or similar ways by the same defect. In these circumstances, there may be a multi-party action with many people all suing the manufacturer for injury caused by their defective products. If this happens, it is common for a solicitor’s firm to take on multiple clients who all have the same or similar claims.


Proving Product Liability
In product liability claims the court will consider all the circumstances of the case, including the way in which the product was advertised and marketed to consumers, the warnings and cautions supplied with it and the intended purpose of the product, as well as the time when the product was supplied to the recipient. However, some cases are provable on a strict liability basis. In these cases, there is no need to prove negligence: the mere fact that the manufacturer supplied the product is enough to prove liability. This is the case with e.g. pharmaceutical drugs.

To find out if you have a product liability claim for compensation, please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left.
