Our dedicated attorneys at Shawn Steel Law Firm have been pursuing justice for the victims of many types of accidents for which they were not to blame for many years. We have achieved a record for success in personal injury claims made against the suppliers or manufacturers of defective products which other firms of attorneys in California envy.
Product liability is something that any company that makes, distributes or sells goods which are potentially dangerous is aware of. In an ideal situation no products would ever leave the factory without being adequately tested. Also, any product which has some inherent safety concern would be adequately accompanied by clear and concise instructions and appropriate warnings.
The reality is that defective products are constantly appearing on the market place. Part of the problem is that many products are now being made outside of the United States in a globalized economy and not all these imported products undergo the same degree of quality control and testing that the same sort of products manufactured here might have. Cheap products are not always safe products.
This does not mean that American made products are all safe and never exhibit defects, as this is not the case. A worrying stream of modern devices, automobiles, machines and clothing and furniture have been found to be defective in one way or another and some have caused significant injuries to the unfortunate users.
There is absolutely no excuse for defective products, especially ones that can cause injuries to the consumer. Nobody is expecting that all products are made instantly safe, as there are always going to be safety issues around the use of some consumer goods. The point is that a person who purchases a particular product should be able to use the product safely as long as the instructions for safe use are followed.
Millions of people injured by defective products every year
The number of people who are injured annually by some sort of defective product is truly staggering. The statistics indicate a number that exceeds over 20 million who are injured, however trivially, by a defective product with many thousands dying through their injuries. Not everybody who is injured goes on to make a product liability claim.
Every year there are several incidents in which there is a product recall by a manufacturer after it has been discovered that there is a potentially dangerous safety issue involved. These products range from ATVs and ordinary passenger cars to children’s toys and furniture. Many of these manufacturers and their insurance companies will do their best to minimize possible product liability claims. The problem of injuries and potential fatalities from defective products is certainly not limited to unknown and obscure companies from far away countries. It is also evident in well known manufacturers of household brands right here in the U.S.A., who are continually trying to cut corners when it comes to the costs of manufacturing their products or employing people to thoroughly test every aspect before release.
The release of defective products on to the market place is a form of negligence
If you are one of the many millions of people who have been injured by a defective product, do not let these companies get away with evading responsibility. The release of defective products on to the market place is a form of negligence and the distribution and sale of products which have not been tested properly or are known to have defects is also negligence.
