What Can Happen?

Most people do not think of faulty products as being something that can cause them harm. After all, usually people just see on the news where the occasional problem product has caused someone else harm. It has never happened to someone you know, right?

Well, it does happen and faulty products are more common than you think. First, we want to look at the three main factors that lead to a product liability case:

  1. If a product was poorly designed to begin with, it can lead to millions of units of the product being distributed before a problem is discovered. A design flaw should be discovered in product testing, but sometimes is not. Any product we use or consume is subject to design flaws.
  2. When a product suffers from a manufacturing defect, it is altered from its original design and this can cause major harm to consumers. Even if a product works well, a manufacturing flaw can change test results.
  3. Labeling problems can cause major harm and cover many things. First, all products should have labeled hazards, ingredients, dosages, and instructions. If they do not, they can be used improperly. This includes every product we use, from hard goods and foods to medications.

When we look at the government website that tracks current recalls, we can see many objects that we may not expect on there. They span many types of consumer goods and foods. It is a good idea to always know what you are buying for use in your household and keep track of all recalls.

There will be times when companies and manufacturers know that a faulty product is on the market, but do not let consumers know. They should be held liable if that is the case.
