- STRICT LIABILITY
- Murray v. Goranin Toy Co. (2000)
- The knowledge and expectations of a reasonable consumer must be considered in deciding whether a product is reasonably safe.
For example, a reasonable consumer understands that knives are used to cut things, that alcohol produces intoxication, and that heavy objects may cause injury if bashed against a person’s skull. A product is not unsafe when it poses dangers that would be obvious to a reasonable consumer and can be avoided through the exercise of reasonable prudence.
