As most of you probably know, most product liability claims in the U.S. are based on the doctrine of strict liability. This doctrine holds sellers of defective and unreasonably dangerous
products responsible for injuries caused by those products, even without a showing of negligence. These products have included everything from food, furniture, and kitchen appliances to airplanes, building materials, and industrial machinery.
