How Can Defective Products Injure People?
There are many reasons why a defective or dangerous product may cause a personal injury, even if the item in question was used properly. The following are some of the most common issues:
- Production Product defects: These problems take place during the manufacturing process, when the product is being made or packaged. If the process in place is not sound, the product could have serious safety issues.
- Poor designs: Sometimes product designers and engineers create an item that is inherently unsafe, or fail to account for the various ways in which consumers might use it. Although the product has been manufactured as it should have been, it still presents hazards.
- Lack of proper warning: When a product may be dangerous if used in a certain way, manufacturers need to provide clear warning labels. And if a company notices a defect after a product has gone to market, it should issue a recall or provide additional warnings to consumers.
Dangerous Medical Devices Impact Patients
There are numerous medical products out there that aim to help people dealing with serious health conditions, but sometimes these products actually make the problem worse. These include pacemakers, knee and hip joints, defibrillators, prescription medications and contraceptive devices.
It is important to understand that just because a product has received approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t mean it is completely safe for consumers. In fact, thousands of patients have suffered serious injuries from dangerous health care products and have had to seek compensation from manufacturers. Our team has assisted individuals and families suffering after injuries resulting from dangerous products or medical devices.
