Product liability refers to the legal responsibility of producers, manufacturers, designers, suppliers, and retailers to ensure the safety of their products. Even though the United States has many strict rules and guidelines based on product testing, quality control and other safety precautions, many people are injured by faulty products and goods. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalls millions of unsafe products every year including but not limited to defective and/or unsafe:
– Baby products
– Vehicles of all kinds
– Electronic devices and technology
– Medicines and prescription drugs
– Medical devices and equipment
Something that many find to be a double edged sword is that the product testing, quality control, and other safety precautions that must be implemented, are monitored by the product companies themselves. Individuals and parties involved in this make honest errors and unfortunately, sometimes make dishonest claims in order to speed their product’s approval along or to save on costs, etc. No matter what the cause, many people are tragically injured or die as the result of faulty products. When someone is injured because of a faulty product or good, it is important to hold the parties responsible for this not just to protect the rights of the victim and his or her family but to protect the public at large from dangerous products.
