Dangerous products in the marketplace can cause serious harm. Manufacturers owe a duty to make their products safe for you and your family.
What is a product liability lawsuit?
Product liability is an area of law in which retailers, manufacturers, suppliers and distributors are held responsible for any injuries or deaths that the products they are dealing with cause. Examples may include defective toys with parts that are not secured correctly leading to children choking or cars with faulty airbags resulting in ineffective safety features in the event of a crash.
From 2005-2014, there have been a total of 19,581 incidents, 2,464 injuries, and 57 deaths related to recalled children’s products reported prior to recall. (Kids In Danger 2015 Report)
Of course, product manufacturers never intentionally create products that cause harm to consumers, but unfortunately it does happen and it is the manufacturer that is liable. Therefore, if you or a loved one has been injured or a loved one has died as the result of a faulty or defective product, whether or not it was subject to a recall, it is well within your rights to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
