Consumers spend millions of dollars a year purchasing the latest products on the market. New trends arrive every year, compelling many people to buy the hottest products, from computers to clothing to children’s toys. 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 manufacturer’s responsibility to alert consumers if there are any dangers associated with using the product. Many products are removed from the shelves through recalls because of injuries that have resulted while using the product. Warning labels are also used to make consumers aware of potential harm.
3 Ways a Product May Be Dangerous
- A design flaw or defect existed when the product was designed that makes the entire line dangerous even if the manufacturing and assembly were flawless.
- A flaw or defect exists when a safely designed product becomes dangerous because the manufacturer failed to make the product per the plans and specifications.
- Inadequate warnings or instructions are not complete and do not give clear directions for using the product.
