No matter how independent you are, we are sure you rely on plenty of products to get through your day. From your morning coffee and breakfast to your computer and cell phone, you might be surprised by how many things you use and consume during the course of a day.
One thing you do not usually think about is a product causing you or your family harm. You should not have to. After all, there are strict safety requirements for the things we buy. Unfortunately, sometimes things go wrong and a product is faulty.

Taking a quick look at the government recall website, we can see just how many products are out there that can cause us harm. Here are just a few examples:
These are just a few examples of some recalls that take place. There are hundreds of recalls a month, many that the public is unaware of.
Product liability cases arise a few different ways.
One way they happen is when a product is poorly designed from the beginning. Often, these design flaws are discovered quickly and not many people get hurt. Other times, it could take years for a design flaw to become apparent. By then, hundreds of thousands of consumers may have the product and could potentially be harmed.
Another way these cases happen is when there is a manufacturing problem. A manufacturing issue can alter a product from its original design. This could lead to a consumer being harmed.
Labeling issues can also cause major harm or illness to consumers. Manufacturers are required to let consumers know all hazards associated with their products (burn risks, choking hazards, medication side effects, possible allergens). If they do not properly label their products, they should be held liable for injuries. This also includes medication companies putting the proper dosages on the label.
Remember, you usually only have two years from the time of the injury or illness to file a product liability case, so act quickly.
