When a person buys a new good or product, they have every right to expect that it will function correctly and will not pose a substantial risk to their health or safety. Unfortunately, the reality is that many unsafe products are frequently released to consumers. Whether because of poor design, faulty manufacturing, or even inadequate labeling, consumers can be put in serious danger of suffering a serious, potentially life-altering, injury from defective products.
When a product causes an individual to suffer an injury, those involved in the design, manufacturing, and sale of the product may be held liable for the consequences that the injury victim has to face. While not all injuries caused by a dangerous product may be legally actionable, there are many instances in which accident victims are able to take legal action against the parties responsible for designing, creating, and selling an unsafe product.
