Defective Product Injuries
12 January 2012No Comments
Consumers depend on government regulations and product warnings to alert them to any potential dangers associated with the products they use on a daily basis. Unfortunately, inadequate regulations and lax approval processes in place in the United States allow numerous unsafe and possibly defective products on the market for consumer use. Even worse, consumers often don’t receive warnings about these products until it’s too late. Too many consumers pass off injuries resulting from the use of dangerous products as accidents when a manufacturer may actually be to blame. Don’t let your child or yourself suffer the potentially life-altering consequences because of another party’s negligence. Contact an experienced Corpus Christi defective product attorney today and protect yourself and your family from further harm.
Types Of Defective Products
Defective products can include a variety of dangerous products intended for consumer use, and even for use with children. Among the most common types of defective products are:
- Motor vehicles
- Medical devices
- Toys and recreational equipment
- Food products
- Household appliances
- Machinery and tools
Injuries Caused By Defective Products
Due to the large variety of consumer products on the market today, the range of injuries caused by potentially defective products is staggering. Unfortunately, a consumer product typically isn’t deemed faulty or dangerous until one or more consumers suffer serious injury or death by its use. This unnecessary harm can be devastating, especially when it involves a defective children’s product. Some of the most common injuries caused by faulty consumer products include:
- Burn injuries
- Traumatic brain injures
- Spinal cord injuries
- Fractures and broken bones
- Neck and back injuries
In addition to significant physical injury, defective products can also inflict severe financial and emotional hardships on victims. Serious injuries can prevent victims from returning to work for a period of time, or even permanently, which can result in a devastating loss of income. In addition to lost income, the considerable medical bills associated with defective product injuries can result in an overwhelming financial burden.
