Each year, dangerous and unsafe products cause hundreds of thousands of injuries to innocent people. Poor product design and lack of manufacturing oversight are just two of the common reasons defective products can make it to store shelves. In the United States, the law holds product manufacturers and sellers responsible for making sure their products are safe, and when they fail to meet this obligation, they can be held liable for any injuries and damages that result.
- Defective Products: Product recalls often make headlines in the news, but a product doesn’t have to be recalled to be dangerous, defective, or unsafe. Many defective products injure or even kill people before they can be recalled, and some dangerous products are never recalled at all. Any product can be defective if is designed poorly, not tested properly, or not subjected to the quality-control checks required by law. Potentially hazardous defects can affect products of all types, including cell phones, vehicles, furniture, cookware, children’s toys, etc.
- Defective Airbags: Defective airbags, such as those manufactured by the company Takata, can cause serious or even fatal injuries. Whether the airbag deploys unexpectedly or does not inflate properly during a collision, drivers and passengers often suffer the consequences of negligence on the part of airbag companies.
- Defective Tires: Defective vehicle tires can pose an incredible danger to drivers and passengers. When tires fail on the road, they can cause an immediate loss of control, often leading to devastating accidents. In addition, many rollover accidents are caused by defects in tire treads.
