Unsafe Products Lawyers

Dangerous & Defective Products

We are fortunate to live in an age of technological marvels designed to ease daily living. From microchip technology to jumbo jets, we have seen an explosion in gadgetry for saving labor, enhancing convenience, facilitating communication– and for just plain fun. Naturally, we rely on the designers, manufacturers, and distributors of these products to ensure that they are safe– and have adequate labeling instructions and warnings about any potential dangers with their use. In the interests of public safety, Federal and State laws require consumer and workplace products to be reasonably safe when marketed. Nonetheless, there are over 15,000 products reported as unsafe each year in the U.S.– putting every consumer and worker at substantial risk of injury or death.

There is a great motivation to bring new products to consumers: profit. While there is nothing wrong with making money from a new product that helps people, the profit motive may also lead to cutting corners and skimping on safety. Designers and Manufacturers of new products have to deal with cost-containment issues. There comes a point where making a product yet safer does not justify the expense. Producers of products must draw the line somewhere on much to spend making a potentially dangerous product safe. If it proves unsafe and a purchaser is maimed or killed, that loss must fall somewhere.

According the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Product Safety failures are estimated to cost $700 BILLION per year. The fairest place to put these losses is on the Designers, Manufacturers and/or Distributers– who purchase insurance to cover the costs of injuries, damage or death from using their product consistent with it’s instructions.

Product safety issues may arise from bad design, defective materials, improper manufacture, inadequate warning labels, substandard packaging, contamination and/or spoilage. When these problems are foreseeable, yet happen anyway, it means negligence is involved. Those severely injured or killed because of negligence causing a bad product deserve compensation for themselves and/or their families. Examples of Unsafe Products include:

  • Sports Utility Vehicles that rollover when turning;
  • Appliances that catch on fire from poor wiring;
  • Infant pajamas and blankets that are highly flammable;
  • Cleaning fluids that release chlorine gas when mixed;
  • Lighters and aerosol cans that explode;
  • Pain with lead or arsenic;
  • Machines without proper machine guards;
  • Toxic chemicals and drugs in non-child safe containers;
  • Defective Tires; and
  • Food poisoning.
