In the past two decades there has been an explosion of product
liability lawsuitsbrought against manufacturers of defective goods
due to increased manufacturers' exposure to liability. This phenomenon,
referred to as the "product liability revolution," has expanded
manufacturers' liability and facilitated recovery for injured plaintiffs
for product-caused injuries.
