Defects, Recalls, & Consumer Safety

  1. 1. Defects, Recalls, & Consumer Safety Understanding the basics of consumer protections and product liability
  2. 2. How Consumer Safety Issues Affect You We are all consumers. Whether we purchase food, vehicles, toys for our children, or medications, we pay money to makers and sellers of goods in exchange for these products. We also place our trust in these companies to ensure the items we purchase are as safe as possible. When companies fail to live up to their end of the bargain, consumers can suffer serious injuries. This is where product liability comes into play… CONTACT US TODAY: 800.444.5000
  3. 3. What is Product Liability? Product liability law is based on the idea that if you buy a faulty product that injures you, the manufacturer should compensate you for the costs associated with that injury. Typically, successful product liability claims have two factors in common: A) a product was defective, and B) damages were suffered by the consumer. CONTACT US TODAY: 800.444.5000
  4. 4. Product Defects A product can be defective in many ways. For example, if the product is poorly designed, it might contain inherent defects that pose a threat to consumers. Defects might also stem from faulty components or manufacturing flaws. Additionally, if a product isn’t labeled with the proper handling or safety instructions, an injured consumer can also pursue a product liability claim. CONTACT US TODAY: 800.444.5000
  5. 5. The Role of Recalls When a product is deemed to be harmful to consumers, the company that makes or sells the product will issue a recall to remove the product from the market. Recalls can be prompted by the company that sells the product or by the government agencies that oversee the safety of a product. Recalls are typically carried out by the company itself. CONTACT US TODAY: 800.444.5000
  6. 6. Shortcomings of Recalls Recalls are an essential part of consumer protection, but they do have limitations. • Recalls are often issued only after consumers have been injured or made ill by a defective product. • Consumers aren’t always aware that a product has been recalled. • Agencies that oversee recalls sometimes fail to ensure that products are removed quickly. CONTACT US TODAY: 800.444.5000
  7. 7. How to Search for Product Recalls Unfortunately, it’s often up to consumers to do their homework about recalled products. The best place to begin your search is by visiting the U.S. government’s website, which serves as a centralized, searchable database of recalls. https://www.recalls.gov/ CONTACT US TODAY: 800.444.5000
  8. 8. When a Product Has Caused You Harm If you’ve been injured by a faulty product, you have the right to file a product liability claim against the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer. In some cases, you can band together with other consumers filing similar claims in class action lawsuits. If you choose not to join a class action or if one is not available, you can file your own claim against the negligent parties. CONTACT US TODAY: 800.444.5000
  9. 9. Why People File Product Liability Claims Product liability claims can offer consumers a way to receive compensation for… • Injuries, such as burns, fractures, health complications, etc. • Property damage • Lost income • Diminished quality of life CONTACT US TODAY: 800.444.5000
  10. 10. Where Do You Begin? Contact an attorney who has experience with product liability claims. These claims can be complex due to the many laws that govern product liability and the fact that companies often have legal teams equipped to handle claims filed against them. Make sure your attorney has a track record of getting results for clients in product liability cases. CONTACT US TODAY: 800.444.5000
