Highlight

For negligence claims based on defective products, the focus is on whether or not the conduct of the manufacturer or seller falls below the standard of reasonable care. One who has been injured by a product may seek to hold the manufacturer or seller liable on the theory that the design of the product made it dangerous and, apart from whether it was negligent in its design, negligence is inhered in a failure to warn of the danger.
If the existence of a duty depends on factual determinations, their resolution is for the trier of fact. The appropriate procedure in such cases is for the court to instruct the jury as to the defendant's duty, or absence of duty, if certain facts are found.
