As a consumer, you have the right to be safe while using the products that you purchase. Companies have an obligation to ensure that the products that they sell are safely designed and manufactured. Unfortunately, corporations will often put profit above safety. Corners are cut, parts are outsourced to the lowest bidder, and products are rushed to the market without adequate research. These cost saving measures make companies money but could have dangerous consequences for the ordinary consumer. Simply put, defective products are dangerous and can cause serious injury and even death. Product defect cases often fall into categories. Defective manufacturing, Dangerous design, and inadequate warnings.
Examples of common defective products are:
- Dangerous drugs
- Medical Devices
- Defective Tires
Companies that produce faulty products that endanger the public need to be held accountable. Steps used to cut the bottom line have a direct effect on the health and safety of the general public. Unless businesses are held to high standards, they will continue the race to the bottom, resulting in cheap and dangerous products. Litigation is a necessary check to the overreach of corporate greed. Manufacturers of dangerous products have substantial resources to defend themselves from claims. It is vital that you have an experienced defective product attorney working for you.
