If a defective product hurts you, you may wonder if anyone else has experienced a similar problem. You may even be surprised to learn that the product has been recalled due to a manufacturing or design defect. Hundreds of products are recalled each year, including cars, boats, strollers, dressers, exercise equipment, grills, and even medical devices. Sometimes these recalls are initiated because the product poses health risks or has caused injuries or death to others.
The manufacturer has to inform the proper governing body of a product defect, remove the product from the market, and inform the public that the product has been recalled. Yet, all too often, manufacturers do not take the necessary action to correct the problem or wait too long to act when they become aware or have reason to believe a defect exists.
If you or a loved one has been injured as the result of using a product or exposure to a product you believe was defective, you may have a product liability case against the product’s designer, manufacturer, and/or seller. Our team of experienced product liability lawyers can help.
