It seems like every week there are new warnings about products that have been recalled for that week. Some are products that could cause minor injuries or illnesses, but others, such as automobiles and baby products, can cause serious injuries and death if not fixed or replaced. If you fail to keep up with those recalls, you or your family could be injured or sickened by a dangerous product or a contaminated drug.
By law, manufacturers are responsible for all damages their dangerous products cause. Manufacturers are also responsible for quickly notifying the public when a product is found to be dangerous, and taking the steps necessary to get those dangerous products off the store shelves and out of consumers’ hands. Unfortunately, thousands of Americans are injured each year because of poorly designed or manufactured products. Many of those people never seek compensation for their injuries.
If you’re injured by a defective product, you have legal rights. You can sue the manufacturer or the retailer for designing or selling you that dangerous product. If a class action lawsuit is already underway, you may choose to join that lawsuit or pursue a case on your own. You may obtain compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
If you are concerned about product recalls, you can visit the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website at www.cpsc.gov and keep up with recalls via email or by searching through their database. At Liberty Law, Micha Star Liberty believes all consumers have the right to buy products that are safe for consumers.
