A product liability case relates to any injury sustained due to a mislabelled or defective product. It might be possible that the product had a manufacturing flaw or that it simply failed to warn customers about a potential risk.
Accident victims can suffer from a wide variety of injuries such as crushed fingers, losing a limb, eye injuries, and even wrongful death.

Supplier’s Liability For Harm Caused To A Customer
In the past, claims arising from losses or damages incurred by a third party or consumer were regulated by common law. This means that liability for such loss could only be determined concerning the common law of delict. It was often difficult for consumers to successfully prove their claims.
But since the inception of the CPA, the legislature introduced a different approach. A Supplier may be held accountable for any damages or losses incurred by a consumer due to them supplying a defective or unsafe product or where damages or losses arose from a Supplier’s failure to provide adequate information regarding the risks posed with using of a product. The Supplier may be found liable regardless of them being negligent or not.
The Probability Of Success In A Claim Is Determined By These Three Questions:
- Whether services and/or goods are involved as defined in CPA
- If so, whether the party (against whom the claim was instituted) is, in fact, the supplier as defined in the CPA and,
- Whether the claimant suffered any harm as a result of defective goods supplied by the supplier.

You need to have an attorney on your side that won’t back down from the opponent’s legal team that can handle whatever they bring forward to the case.
