Despite laws in the United States around product manufacturing and the recall of faulty products, thousands of people are injured each year from dangerous products. These products range from cars, appliances, and toys to medical devices and equipment. Unfortunately, many people are injured before a product is ever recalled.
If you believe you have been injured by a defective product, it’s best to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. The personal injury lawyers at David Blackwell Law have experience in defective products cases and stay up to date on the latest product recalls. We can research your specific injury and determine if other people are reporting injuries related to the same or similar products. We also have the resources needed to take on the large insurance companies and legal teams often hired by a product manufacturer.
When is a Product Considered Unsafe?
Organizations such as the Consumer Products Safety Commission and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration work to keep consumers safe; however, dangerous products are still appearing on shelves across America. Unsafe products cause harm even though they are used for their intended purposes. Certain products may also be considered dangerous when used for purposes other than their intended use, especially if the action is one that should have been anticipated by the manufacturer.
