In today’s global economy, products are designed by large corporations, mass produced in foreign countries, and shipped all over the world. In the United States, the Federal government provides protection to U.S. consumers from purchasing dangerous products through regulating against the use of dangerous materials, placing warning labels on the packaging, and restricting products against use by certain members of society.
In spite of the protections offered by regulation, injuries occur to young children and adults as a result of defective/dangerous products such as, exposure to lead paint on toys, choking from toys, suffocation caused by defective ventilation, accidents caused or worsened by defective and/or unsafe auto products, flammable household products, flammable clothing, and overheating appliances. If you or your family has been in an accident, seriously injured or killed as a result of a defective product, you need to discuss your case with a product liability lawyer capable of fighting for you. You may be entitled to money for pain and suffering, lost income, past and future medical expenses and for loss of consortium.
