Every day, millions of products are recalled from retail store shelves. Defective manufacturing, false advertising, and downright dangerous design can cause serious accidents, injuries, and death among consumers, including young children. If you or a family member has experienced an accident, injury, or death due to a defective product, you might be eligible to file a claim against the manufacturer, supplier, or distributor of the product.
When making purchases, consumers should be able to trust that the products will not cause accidents or injuries. It is the responsibility of a manufacturer to create a product suitable to be sold to the public without posing any dangers, while it is the responsibility of the suppliers and sellers not to market or sell a product that is defective. When manufacturers and sellers put sales before safety, serious problems arise.
Common Types of Defective Consumer Products
There are numerous products that cause injury and harm to consumers and their families. Many products are released to the public before burn, shock, laceration, amputation, and other risks are assessed. A few of these products include:
- Baby Strollers, Car Seats, and Cribs
- Toddler Toys
- Children's Clothing
- Household Appliances
- Power Tools and Lawn Mowers
- Automobiles and Auto Parts
While the defective products can differ in size, shape, and function, the dangers they all pose to consumers is high.
