From home appliances to children’s toys to automobile tires, we expect the products we use to function properly and perform as promised. Unfortunately, not all products meet our expectations. Hundreds of consumer products such as appliances, clothing, electronics, furniture, cars, children’s items, sports equipment and even prescription medications are recalled each year due to dangerous defects. Defects that cause serious injuries and even death may occur in the design, manufacturing or marketing of the items we use every day. According to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) statistics, children are particularly vulnerable when it comes to dangerous and defective products, with children’s items accounting for 41 percent of CPSC-recalled products in 2009.
The area of law addressing dangerous and defective products is known as product liability or products liability. This complex field calls for thorough investigation and careful preparation of evidence.
