When a consumer buys a product they should feel confident the product does not pose an unreasonable risk of serious injury or death. Dangerous and defective products can pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard to users and bystanders. When dangerous products cause severe injuries or death, the makers and sellers of the products should be held accountable.
Lawsuits on behalf of consumers injured by dangerous products not only can provide judgments for damages for those injured, but also ultimately lead to the removal or recall of those dangerous products from the market.
A product can be dangerous because of defects in its design or manufacture. Additionally a product may be unreasonably dangerous if it does not contain adequate warnings of the risks posed to users of the product.
