Consumers spend millions of dollars a year purchasing the latest products on the market. From computers to clothing to children’s toys, new trends arrive every year, compelling many people to buy the hottest products. But some products on the shelves come with certain dangers and defects that may cause harm to people who use them.
As a consumer, you deserve to know whether a product is harmful or defective. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to alert consumers if there are any dangers associated with the use of the product. Through recalls, many products are removed from the shelves because of injuries that have resulted while using the product. Warning labels are also used to make consumers aware of potential harm.
Here are three ways a product may be found to be dangerous:
- A design flaw or defect exists when the product was designed with a defect that makes the entire line dangerous even if the manufacturing and assembly were flawless.
- A manufacturing flaw or defect exists when a safely designed product becomes dangerous because the manufacturer failed to make the product in accordance with the plans and specifications.
- Inadequate warnings or instructions are not complete and do not give clear directions for use of the product.
If you or someone you know has been injured by a defective or dangerous product, you may be able to file a product liability claim against the negligent manufacturer or company.
