A tort is an infringement of rights leading to civil legal liability. When a corporation or individual violates his responsibilities and someone else suffers out of this violation, this is considered a tort (Chan & Lee, 2016). In the case of Takata, the company failed to disclose that air bag inflators exploded due to too much force. As a result of the nondisclosure, a dozen of motorists have suffered injuries whenever air bags explode. This has attracted civil liabilities against the company. This paper explains two types of torts and the steps taken to avoid liability. These are product liability and fraudulent misrepresentation.

Product liability can be reduced if companies redesign their products and put in more ergonomic features. Equally important, the corporations should carry out a thorough testing and subjecting to standardization before releasing to the market (RECOURS & Calabresi, 2013).
