In America the main way we insure that consumer products of all kinds are safe is through the court system, which imposes “strict liability” for dangerous products. If you are injured by any item of consumer goods, such as a vehicle, a medication, a household item, an appliance, etc., then your claim against the manufacturer / seller of the item not only should compensate you for the injury, it also serves to help protect the public by encouraging the manufacturer to take unsafe products off the market, or to fix the design to improve safety.
These cases are usually complex, but the safety of all Americans depends on injured consumers being willing to hold manufacturers and sellers accountable for the consequences putting profits ahead of safety. If you or a family member has been hurt by a dangerous product call us for a free case consultation.
