Whether these actions happened in the initial design stages of the product, during the manufacture of the product, during the actual product production, or when the product is distributed, there are multiple parties who can be held accountable for your injuries. Negligence can even be found in the advertisement of the product. For example, if the advertising campaign touts the incorrect ways to use a product and someone gets hurt from it, this can lead to a lawsuit as well.
