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.

Current Australian product recalls:

Honda Australia Pty Ltd — Honda City MY2009-2012, CR-V MY2007-2011, Jazz MY2005-2013 and Insight MY2011

Wed, 23 Oct 2019 00:00:00 +1100

Product description

Critical Recall
Campaign 6XH

A group of vehicles have been fitted with a complete driver airbag assembly, which has been determined to contain an affected Takata airbag inflator.

Honda City
Model Years 2009-2012

Honda CR-V
Model Years 2007-2011

Honda Jazz
Model Years 2005-2013

Honda Insight
Model Year 2011

Front driver side airbag inflators
167 affected vehicles

What are the defects?

Takata airbag inflator: As it gets older, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause the airbag inflator propellant to degrade. If an affected vehicle is involved in a collision triggering the airbag, the metal inflator housing may explode/rupture under too much internal pressure.

What are the hazards?

In the event that a defective airbag inflator ruptures, metal fragments may propel out through the airbag cushion towards the vehicle occupants causing serious injury or fatality.

What should consumers do?

If owners of affected Honda City MY2009-2012, CR-V MY2007-2011, Jazz MY2005-2013 and Insight MY2011 are advised their vehicle is under 'critical recall’, it is recommended that you stop driving the vehicle and immediately arrange for airbag inflator replacement as the vehicle has a heightened risk of causing injury or death. The critical recall category applies to alpha airbags and also includes other airbags specified by Honda. 

Honda will offer to arrange for your vehicle to either be towed to the place of replacement or for a mobile technician to be sent to the vehicle (or some similar arrangement), so that you do not have to drive the vehicle in order to receive a replacement airbag inflator.

Owners of affected vehicles should contact their preferred Honda dealership, Honda via the website www.honda.com.au/recall or call 1800 957 444 (Monday to Friday, 8.30am-6pm AEST) to arrange for a replacement airbag inflator free of charge. You are also entitled to request special arrangements where the circumstances reasonably warrant this or where you will be deprived of your vehicle for more than 24 hours, such as a loan or hire car or reimbursement for alternative transportation costs. 
 
Consumers who are unsure whether they are affected can also use Honda’s VIN look-up tool at www.honda.com.au/recall, contact Honda on 1800 957 444 (Monday to Friday, 8.30am-6pm AEST) or contact their preferred Honda dealer.
 
Alternatively, consumers can use their registration plate number to check if their vehicle is affected by going to http://www.ismyairbagsafe.com.au.

What are the defects?

Due to a production fault, over time a crack in the transmissions pressure accumulator can occur.

If the pressure accumulator cracks, oil and pressure is lost in the hydraulic system of the gearbox. As a result, the transmission of engine power via the gearbox is interrupted. The experience of this symptom would be comparable to depressing the clutch in a vehicle fitted with a manual transmission. This could increase the likelihood of an accident affecting the occupants of the vehicle and other road users.

Audi Australia Pty Ltd is contacting all known owners of affected vehicles. Consumers should contact their nearest Audi dealer to arrange for inspection and repair.

17 July 2019 and 17 October 2019 to attach updated VIN list

What are the defects?

What are the defects?

Due to a production fault, over time a crack in the transmissions pressure accumulator can occur.

What are the hazards?

If the pressure accumulator cracks, oil and pressure is lost in the hydraulic system of the gearbox. As a result, the transmission of engine power via the gearbox is interrupted. The experience of this symptom would be comparable to depressing the clutch in a vehicle fitted with a manual transmission. This could increase the likelihood of an accident affecting the occupants of the vehicle and other road users.

What should consumers do?

Audi Australia Pty Ltd is contacting all known owners of affected vehicles. Consumers should contact their nearest Audi dealer to arrange for inspection and repair.

For further information, contact the Audi Australia 24-hour toll free number 1800 50 AUDI (2834).

2. If you find that the cooker is not supported as per the installation instructions and requirements of AS/NZS 5601 you must contact the caravan manufacturer to have this rectified and the appliance must be checked by a licensed gas fitter for any damage and leaks. In particular the licensed gasfitter must confirm the installation mounting is adequate and undamaged, there is no damage to the appliance and the pipes from the interlock valve, to the oven burner and the grill burner have no signs of damage or fatigue. Fitting a gas leak detector below the appliance is also recommended.

3. If you are unsure of how to assess the installation or you are unable to contact a caravan manufacturer because it has ceased trading contact Swift for further advice on 03 93593068 or by email accounts@swiftappliancegroup.com.au

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.
