Product Liability in Michigan
In most cases, a product must meet a consumer’s ordinary expectations, but if that product causes you injury, it might be because it was defectively manufactured, defectively designed, or because the product did not provide adequate instructions or warnings regarding the use of the product.  
•  Defective manufacturing is when a mistake or error occurs at the factory where the product is manufactured, and the flawed product thereafter injures someone. Manufacturing defects that may cause an injury can include: using the wrong fasteners or screws on mechanical parts or attaching parts together incorrectly.  
•  Defectively designed products are those products with an inherently dangerous design, such as SUVs that tend to flip over easily or airbags that deploy incorrectly or malfunction.  
•  If a product causes injury because there were inadequate instructions or warnings about the proper use of the product, you may also have a products liability claim. This is typically considered a marketing defect in a product liability case, and a product manufacturer usually must warn consumers of any dangers that might not be obvious.  
Under Michigan law, product liability lawsuits can be complicated and complex, especially when it is not always easy to determine who might be at fault for the defect. Liability for dangerous or defective products could rest on any party that might be in the product’s chain of distribution, including:
•  The product designer;
•  The manufacturer of the product;
•  Those responsible for assembling or installing the product;
•  Manufacturers of component parts;
•  Product distributors;
•  Product wholesalers; and
•  Retail stores that sell products to consumers.  
In addition to determining who might be responsible for the defect, you must also be able to prove that the defect existed when the product left the hands of the responsible party. Moreover, you must establish that the injury was foreseeable. If you were using the product in the way that it was intended to be used, or a manufacturer could reasonably expect you to use the product in the way you used it, and the product caused your injury, then you might have a viable products liability claim.
