According to the Consumer Product Safety Administration, 28,000 Americans die and 33,000 more are injured as a result of faulty consumer products. While it was once the purchaser’s responsibility to ensure product safety, that is no longer the case. Today, manufacturers must guarantee the safety of their products and the consumers who use them.
Defective products can range from heavy manufacturing machinery to simple children’s toys. Regardless of the product type, injury may occur as a result of manufacturing defects, design defects, or failure to give consumers warnings about potential dangers. Defective products can cause serious injuries and you should know that you do have legal options.
