Product liability claims involve numerous legal complexities. Who are all of the defendants — the product manufacturer, the defective component manufacturer, the product distributor, the end seller of the product or another party? And why is the case actionable — was the product covered by an express warranty? An implied warranty? And how was the warranty breached — from a failure to warn? Through improper instructions? Through the lack of instructions? Or from a faultily manufactured product?
