Why Is Product Liability Insurance Considered Basic Business Insurance?

Product Liability Insurance is essential for businesses engaged in manufacturing, distributing, importing, or selling products. It serves as a safety net, protecting against financial loss due to bodily injury or property damage stemming from product defects or claims. This coverage can be integrated into your General Liability policy or obtained as a standalone solution.

Many businesses opt for Product Liability Insurance to cover legal defense expenses and settlement costs, providing financial security. Additionally, it fulfills contractual obligations for downstream purchasers, such as retailers.

“After shopping for insurance and receiving lukewarm responses, it was refreshing to consult with Sadler Insurance. Their industry knowledge was impressive, and we ultimately saved 50% compared to previous agents and quotes.” – Bill Jacob



Understanding Product Liability Insurance

Product Liability Insurance is a commercial insurance type that shields manufacturers, distributors, importers, retailers, and others from potential financial losses when a defective product results in bodily injury or property damage to consumers or the public. This policy can be integrated into a General Liability policy or secured as a standalone coverage. Product Liability policies serve as a financial resource for legal defense expenses and settlement payments, making them vital for businesses.

What Does Product Liability Insurance Cover?

Product Liability Insurance encompasses specific lawsuits that allege bodily injury or property damage caused by faulty or defective products. Bodily injury may lead to medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, disability, and even loss of life. Property damage involves physical harm to property or loss of its use.

Product Liability and Strict Liability Legal Doctorine

Product defects generally fall into three categories:

Manufacturing Error: This occurs when a manufacturer deviates from the design specifications during production, leading to missing parts or non-compliance with performance standards.

Faulty Instructions: In this scenario, the provided product instructions are flawed, causing incorrect or unsafe use of the product.

Design Defect: Products with design defects result in unforeseen consequences that lead to injuries.

A defective product causing injury can result in a Product Liability lawsuit against any entity involved in its distribution. Manufacturers, distributors (including wholesalers and retailers), and importers are all potential targets. Before 1963, establishing negligence against a manufacturer or distributor was necessary for a successful lawsuit, requiring proof of:

  • Product defect
  • Causation of injury
  • Lack of due care by the manufacturer or distributor

However, after 1963, the responsibility of proof shifted, making it easier for consumers to get restitution for product injuries. Now, consumers only need to prove the first two elements, bypassing the challenging third element. This is known as the strict liability doctrine, and it extends protection to various parties beyond the actual purchaser, including employees, users, consumers, and bystanders.

Here are a few lawsuit examples:

  • 3M Hearing Loss Lawsuit for Combat Arm Earplugs
  • Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder Cancer Lawsuits
  • Monsanto Roundup Cancer Lawsuits
  • Zantac Cancer Lawsuits
