The Indiana Products Liability Act, commonly known as “the Act,” governs all product liability cases and defines what constitutes a defective product.

Design Defect

For example, if someone ingested harmful chemicals after microwaving a food container because the packaging failed to warn consumers that it was not microwave-safe.
