When a company introduces a product into the market, it owes a responsibility to consumers to ensure that the product is safe for use. When a manufacturer has reason to believe that its product is unsafe or defective, it has a duty to warn the public of the defect or to stop selling or distributing the product. A company is acting legally when it recalls a product over safety concerns. Unfortunately, companies sometimes disregard these risks and continue to expose people to potential harm.
Unsafe products cause injury. Injuries can cause large personal and financial losses. Product liability law holds companies responsible for the injuries and losses caused by these defective products. Some examples of product liability situations include dangerous food that has not been properly inspected, substandard medical devices, lead paint in children’s toys, or defective car parts.
Product liability cases are complex. They usually require experts to discuss whether the product is defective, and there are often supply chain issues. And these cases become more complicated if a company is internationally based. Because of these complexities, we recommend you contact a lawyer if you or a loved one has been injured as a result of an unsafe product.
