Everyday we purchase products with the trust that they will work properly, and not cause harm in any way when used properly. Unfortunately, each year many people are injured as a result of defects in products they thought to be safe. Defective products continue to cause a large number of injuries to consumers each year.
To provide better service in alerting American people to unsafe, hazardous or defective products, six federal agencies have joined together to create a website with current information about recent product recalls and a searchable database of past recalls: Recalls.gov.
Those Injured by Defective Products May Collect Damages
Should a defective product lead to injury, determining who should be held accountable can be complicated. Manufacturers, retailers, designers, marketers, and others who participate in getting products to the end user may all have some level of legal responsibility. Product liability law allows those who have been injured to seek compensation from anyone whose negligence or actions played a role in either the production of a defective product or during the process of getting it into the hands of consumers.
