Welcome to Lawshelf’s video course on product liability. Product liability is a division of torts and personal injury law that is often the subject of class action lawsuits and routinely generates large monetary verdicts. Product liability cases are also all over the news, from tires that blow out to prescription drugs with harmful side effects to overly hot coffee served at McDonalds, product liability actions make interesting and compelling news stories.

This is an introductory level course and no previous knowledge of tort law is required, though familiarity with some basic legal terms like negligence, assumption of risk and warranty is helpful.
