As consumers, we trust that the products and services we purchase and rely on will live up to the promises of the manufacturer. All too frequently however, these goods and products do not perform the way we expect them to, fail when we need them the most, or are just dangerous. Many types of consumer products from food, prescription drugs and medical devices to children’s toys and consumer products to automobiles and tires have recently been well documented as being defective and causing injury and death due to design or manufacturing defects or improper warnings and instructions. Injuries from defective products and unsafe industrial machinery are too often the cause of workplace and construction accidents.

In many instances of dangerous products, manufacturers and suppliers place their profits ahead of the user’s wellbeing. When it comes down to it, mistakes happen, but all too often, dangerous and defectiveproducts are the result of carelessness, negligence or unethical business practices. Unfortunately, a dangerous or defective product often is not removed from the market until it causes injury, sickness or death. Many dangerous products cases have shown that the product designer, manufacturer, and/or distributor were aware of a defect but chose not to expose the problem because of the potential cost involved. Companies will often avoid recalling an item and take their chances that the cost of resolving a claim, should someone get hurt, is far less than the expense they will incur if they issue a recall.
