According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, each year approximately 400 defective products are recalled. Unsafe and defective products include pharmaceuticals, car and truck tires, medical devices and equipment, prosthetics, strollers, playpens, space heaters, other household items and more.
When companies put profits ahead of safety, they can and should be held responsible for those who are injured or killed by big business’ disregard of the life and limb of their own customers.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury due to an unsafe or defective product, any company in the product’s chain of distribution may be held accountable. Product defects fall into three categories- defects with the design, manufacture or marketing.
