Through modern product liability laws, injured parties can make a claim in court, but such laws are often controversial. Before the 20th century, product lawsuits were rare, and injured consumers faced many legal barriers.

They also debate the proper standards for determining product liability and the kinds of rewards that should be rendered for damages. Product Liability explores these and other liability issues that affect the lives of every American consumer."@en ;
