Product liability insurance covers businesses which are involved in the manufacturing and sales of tangible goods and products. If a consumer product becomes defective or dangerous, these businesses can be held liable for the buyers’ losses, property damage or injury. SVR Lawyers has experience in the defence of claims involving product liability insurance. We have also been involved in subrogated claims against manufacturers and suppliers arising from malfunctioning or dangerous products.
