Dangerous Consumer Products

All types of consumer products can give rise to products liability lawsuits if their design, manufacture, or a failure to warn causes injury. Beyond dangerous drugs, defective medical devices, toxic chemicals, food, automobiles, and other goods people buy and use everyday can sometimes cause injuries for which manufacturers, retailers, and parties along the supply chain can be held liable. Product liability lawsuits differ from most types of personal injury claims. Instead of concentrating on the defendants treatment of the specific plaintiff, they involve proving that the manufacturer, retailer, distributor or supplier produced or mishandled a product either inherently unsafe, unsafe due to mishandling or contamination after production, or unsafe due to a lack of proper instruction or warning to consumers about risks associated with the product. This section provides overviews of various consumer products that have been the subject of product liability lawsuits.
