Auto Recalls and Other Common Types of Defective Products

Product liability is the area of law which deals with injuries resulting from defective, malfunctioning, or inadequately-designed consumer items. Virtually any product or good you can imagine has the potential to suffer from serious defects, ranging from clothing to appliances to furniture to food and beverages.

If you think that it is relatively rare for defective products to cause injuries to consumers, think about this: emergency rooms in the United States treat millions of Americans each year for injuries resulting from the use of dangerous products. Some of the most common examples include:

Liability for Manufacturing Defects, Flawed Designs, and Inaccurate Labels

Product defects generally fall into one of the following categories:

These and other defects have the potential to cause debilitating and disabling injuries, which can burden the victim with tremendous medical debt in addition to great pain and suffering. It is estimated that the costs associated with emergency treatment for defective product injuries amounts to billions of dollars a year. Worse, many of these injuries require ongoing care, well beyond the costs associated with initial treatment in an emergency room.

However, under the right circumstances, these and other costs can be compensated. Damages available to victims may include medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, loss of physical capacity, and mental anguish. If the defendant company demonstrated a reckless or wanton disregard for safety, punitive damages may also be available. Punitive damages are typically awarded to punish the defendant for his or her negligent actions, in addition to any monetary award for the injuries caused.
