How products liability law works in Mississippi
Manufacturers, distributors and sellers of products are responsible for making sure that their goods are safe for their intended use. There are three types of defects in a product that may create needless danger to the public:
- Design defects — These defects are inherent and exist before a product is even built. The absence of a standard safety feature, such as a “kill switch,” is an example of a design defect.
- Manufacturing defects — These defects happen in the construction or production of the item. The use of substandard materials can produce a manufacturing defect.
- Marketing defects — These defects result from improper instructions or inadequate warnings about inherent dangers of the product.
Under Mississippi product liability law, producers of defective products are usually held strictly liable for harm to consumers that was reasonably foreseeable. Victims are eligible for compensation for medical bills, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and other damages. But the law also protects the public by making sure the products being sold for our use are safe.
