Vaporizer Product Liability

The vaporizer industry grows significantly each year. As with all rising industries, the increase in vaporizer producers brings more complications. As more companies and products enter the market, you will see new technologies arise as companies clamor to grab their share.

The inadequate testing on vaporizers will create opportunities for poorly made products to injure you. As the number of consumers increases, so do the chances for a vaporizer product liability claim.

What Is Product Liability?

Product manufacturers have a responsibility to you to make safe products. Defective or dangerous products are the cause for thousands of injuries each year. Product liability is a producer or seller’s responsibility to place a safe product into your hands.

There are currently no federal laws involving vaporizer product liability. This means vaporizer product liability laws may differ between states. In general terms, the laws require a vaporizer meet the ordinary expectations of the customer. It cannot meet the buyer’s ordinary expectations if it has an unexpected defect or danger.

Who Is Responsible?

The defective vaporizer must have been sold in the marketplace in order for you to have a product liability claim. Simply put, this means you must have bought it at a business or on the Internet. If this is the case, any party involved in the vaporizer’s chain of distribution can be liable, such as:

  • Vaporizer manufacturer
  • Part manufacturer
  • Any party involved in assembly or installation
  • Wholesaler
  • The retail store selling you the vaporizer

Remember, for strict liability to apply, the sale of your vaporizer must happen in the course of the supplier’s regular business. So if you bought a defective product at a garage sale, you may not have a vaporizer product liability claim against the seller.

Three Types of Product Defects

Your vaporizer product liability claim must be able to prove the vaporizer that caused your injury was defective, and the defect made it unreasonably dangerous. There are three types of defects that might cause injury and strengthen your vaporizer product liability claim:

  • Design Defects – unsafe design of the vaporizer
  • Manufacturing Defects – happen when the vaporizer is assembled
  • Marketing Defects – flaws in the way the vaporizer is marketed
    • Improper Labeling
    • Insufficient Instructions
    • Inadequate Safety Warnings
