Defective products are a major cause of personal injury. The category of defective products can include children’s toys, consumer goods, home appliances – even food. Medicines can have unforeseen side effects; faulty charcoal grills could cause burns. Any of these could cause personal injury – or even death.
Manufacturers aren’t always as careful as they should be in designing or building a product. In fact, there were 2,363 product recalls in 2011, and this number doesn’t reflect individual defective products, only products that were defective as a whole.
Product liability may apply in any of these cases. Product liability law holds the parties responsible for dangerous products responsible for any injury they might cause.
