Accidents and Injuries Involving Defective Products
Whenever someone manufactures a good, that person is required to follow
a certain set of regulations that ensure the product is safe for general
use. Cars, for example, must have working brakes; children's cribs
cannot be built in such a way that they cause accidental suffocation.
Sadly, many companies cut corners to increase their profits and the result
is a product that can cause harm to the consumer.
Defective products can be found in a wide range of industries, including:
- Children's toys
- Recreational equipment
- Sporting equipment
- Pharmaceutical drugs
Why Are Defective Products Even an Issue?
Production demands and the never-ending drive for increased profits can
result in a company using substandard parts to build a product and/or
sell it without proper testing. A product can also be defective due to
a poor design, or come with inadequate warning labels or instructions
for its use. When a defective product causes injuries, the manufacturer
and any third parties responsible for the defect, can be held liable for damages.
