Defective, Unsafe and Dangerous Products

As a consumer, you expect the products you purchase to be free from defects and suitable for their advertised use. Despite your expectations, sometimes injury occurs because a product was defective and not suitable for its intended purpose. Products that can be defective run the gamut from defective cars and car parts to defective appliances, and defective products can cause death or serious catastrophic injury. The below are several types of products that have resulted in injuries and death.

Defective Vehicles and Component Parts

Defective motor vehicles or defective motor vehicle component parts, such as tires, seat belts, airbags or brakes, can cause motor vehicle accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents or bicycle accidents and can lead to catastrophic, life-altering injuries or death. These types of accidents can cause traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, severe burn injuries, broken bones or even amputation.

Toys and Other Children’s Products

Defective toys and other products made for children such as clothing, school supplies, car seats and baby products can cause serious injuries to children and can even lead to tragedy.

Building Materials and Machinery

Defective building materials, machinery and heavy equipment can cause industrial accidents, including explosions, fires and other workplace accidents.

Furniture and Appliances

Defective furniture can collapse or create a fire hazard, and other defective household goods such as appliances and grills can cause serious burn injuries, crush injuries, lacerations or hazardous fumes.

Defective Drugs and Medical Equipment

In some instances, defective products include products manufactured to make our lives better, such as medical devices and prescription or over-the-counter medications. Defective medical equipment can cause setbacks to your health which was originally supposed to improve your way of life.

Keep in mind that you’re not alone in this. Often times, a medical device failure is not an isolated incident. Failure typically results from deficiencies that could have been prevented with clinical trials or product testing. As such, hundreds or even thousands of people could be victimized by a device manufacturer that simply neglected to take the steps necessary to ensure safety.
