The Importance of Ensuring Products are Safe

February 20, 2017 |

Before products go on the market, manufacturers have to go through a process that ensures the products they release are safe. This is done during a number of phases including design, manufacturing, and advertising. Unfortunately, a number of manufacturers don’t always abide by the regulations that prevent them from releasing dangerous products. It is important, though, for the manufacturers to ensure items are safe for multiple reasons.

Dangerous Products Can Result In Injuries

Unfortunately, dangerous products created by manufacturers can cause serious injuries to consumers. Victims who have been harmed may be able to file a product liability lawsuit for the damages they have sustained. The victim must prove that the injury was caused as a result of any of the following:

  • Design defect: A design defect occurs when a is designed with potential danger. For instance, it can be due to an item with a sharp edge and no protection. Or a child’s toy designed to be made with lead paint.
  • Manufacturing defect: During the manufacturing phase, the company needs to ensure that the parts are assembled correctly. If a part falls off, especially with regard to a child’s toy, it can become a choking hazard or not work correctly, putting the consumer in direct danger of injury.
  • Failure to warn: If a product has potential danger, the manufacturer must provide a warning informing the consumer of the hazard. For instance, a product used as instructed causing an injury may be attributed to user error. If there is no warning of the danger and the consumer is hurt, the manufacturer may be considered liable.

Potential Injuries

If a product is not safe, it can cause serious and often life-threatening injuries. This can include broken bones, lacerations, amputations, choking hazards, strangulation, and more. For this reason, manufacturers must take action to protect consumers, ensuring all products are safe.
