Defective Consumer Products
Defective Products Attorneys
Companies that design, manufacture, market and distribute consumer products are expected to protect consumers from potential hazards of using their products. These expectations are often outlined in industry regulations. For example, auto manufacturers must comply with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and Regulations.
Despite regulations otherwise, many companies fail in their duty to keep consumers safe. Sometimes companies fail to perform adequate tests of their products to determine if there are flaws. Other times, companies know of a defect in one of their products, but fail to correct the defect before the product reaches consumers. Even worse, sometimes companies are aware of a safer, cost effective design to a product they want to sell but fail to use that safer design. These failures constitute negligence on the part of the company and can cause serious harm to you and the public.
