What Is ‘Product Liability’?
The United States Consumer Safety Commission (CPC) estimates that defective products have claimed the lives of over 20,000 people and injured another 30 million since the CPC began keeping records. Injuries reported to the CPC by consumers include loss of limbs, paraplegia, blindness, deafness and other devastating conditions.
Product manufacturers have a legal and moral obligation to warn consumers of any dangers they face by using their products. Even if a product is knowingly dangerous, the manufacturer could still be held liable if it did not take enough steps to prevent consumer injury. Under product liability law, it is irrelevant if the manufacturer showed negligence or used great care when constructing a product. If it injured a consumer, the manufacturer will most likely be held liable.
Products That Cause Injuries
Any consumer product has the potential for causing serious injuries or death if used incorrectly or manufactured improperly, but there are some that lead to problems more often than others. Children’s toys, household appliances and personal automobiles are at the top of the list, but Nugent Law Firm can help you regardless of how you were injured.
