Product liability cases don't have to relate to physical injury

When you think of product liability cases, do you typically assume that they involve dangerous products which have caused physical injury to those who used them? While this is true in many cases--such as a defective automobile that caused an accident or did not protect a person properly during a crash--it's very important to note that not all liability cases lead to physical injury. Cases can also be started after property damage or economic loss.
