Product Liability | Consumers trust companies to make reliable and safe products that can be used in everyday life without fear of injury. However, not all manufacturers create products with the safety of consumers in mind and ignore regulations that dictate how a product should be made. All companies, whether they are designers, manufacturers, or distributors, have a duty to provide consumers with safe and reliable products fit for a particular purpose. If this duty is not upheld and a defective product that causes harm to consumers is released, they may be held liable in the court of law for injuries and damages sustained. Even if the oversight from which the defect originated was unintentional, that liability may still exist. Such measures exist to protect consumers from companies that value profit over safety by placing dangerous products in commerce. It is important for consumers who suffer injuries due to defective products consult with an attorney to file a claim so they can bring these companies to justice and be fairly compensated for any injuries or damages they suffer.
