Global Product Liability


In Croatia, product safety and regulatory compliance is something manufacturers must manage with the greatest diligence. Otherwise, they are exposed to compensation of damages claims which can result in reputational risks as well as high-level expenses. If due to a product defect a person is injured or killed, or if any tangible property other than the product is damaged, the manufacturer is liable regardless of fault, if the nature of the product is such that it is generally intended for personal use and if the injured party mainly used the product for that purpose.
