Unsafe Products Made by Negligent Manufacturers Cause Harm

Most companies make safe products that benefit consumers; however, there are other companies and manufacturers that produce dangerous products that cause serious injuries. While no company ever sets out to intentionally make an unsafe product, it does happen due to lack of safety testing, quality control, and cutting corners in an effort to save money. Consequently, defective products are made and sold on the marketplace every day unbeknownst to consumers.

Sadly, many people are injured every year by dangerous products such as defective household appliances, cribs, toys and other children’s products, car seats, cars, tires, airbags and other car parts, medical devices, pacemakers, defibrillators, and medications just to name a few.  When products are defective, they can lead to serious injuries including fractures, amputations, burn injuries, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, internal injuries, and even death.

Three Top Causes of Unsafe Products

  1. Design defect. Sometimes the design of a product is flawed and dangerous from the very beginning and, even when manufactured to the design’s exact specifications, can cause consumers harm.
  2. Manufacturing defect. Products can be designed properly but manufactured incorrectly—creating a dangerous product that could cause injuries to consumers due to poor workmanship.
  3. Marketing defect. Sometimes products are designed and constructed correctly, but they are intended for a specific use. When products aren’t marketed correctly or don’t have the proper labels and warning stickers on them, injuries to consumers can occur.

If you believe you have been harmed as a result of negligence on the part of a car manufacturer, tire manufacturer, medical or pharmaceutical company, or company specializing in children’s products, you may have a valid product liability claim to collect compensation for your damages and losses. Although no amount of money can take away your pain and suffering, holding negligent companies and manufacturers liable can help you get justice.
