Protecting yourself from harmful product defects

Defective products pose quite a problem. They cannot be detected until something goes wrong. There is no way to tell if you are the recipient of a defective product until it is too late. Because of that, you may have received mild to severe injuries due to product defects or even inadequate labeling.

What is the Consumer Product Safety Commission?

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission is one of many federal bodies tasked with protecting American consumers. Other safety agencies include the Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency. The CPSC website explains that the agency monitors all products that may contain certain types of dangerous product defects.

Glass found in baby food, leads to product recall

Atlanta parents place a high priority on the safety of their babies. When a product recall involves baby food, these parents understandably become very worried. As such, it is important that the companies which produce baby food remain vigilant about their products’ safety. If it is ever discovered that a manufacturer failed to do so, consumers may choose to pursue products liability lawsuits. This provides an avenue through which such companies can be held accountable for selling a dangerous product.     

Dangerous children’s toys and statistics

Given that so many fun and engaging products are specifically designed and marketed with kids in mind, you and other parents across the country are often led to believe that they are safe for children. Unfortunately, however, the attorneys at Garland, Samuel & Loeb, P.C., are all too familiar with the fact that not all kids’ toys are created equal or safe. Thousands of injury accidents and serious product liability incidents occur every year, having profound and devastating consequences on children and their families.

Recall issued for dry dog and cat food distributed in Georgia

People often hear of "voluntary" manufacturer recalls in Atlanta and may think that returning the affected products or items is optional. The fact is that the word "voluntary" is simply meant to show that the manufacturer has worked out a deal with the appropriate government oversight agency to remove a potentially dangerous product from the market. If and when an injury or illness occurs as a result of using a recalled product, one may still seek compensation from the manufacturer.

Woman awarded $43.1 million for defective product injury

When we get behind the wheel of a car, we trust that everything about the vehicle is safe--from the body’s exterior, to the airbags and seatbelts, to the inside structure. We rely on auto manufacturers’ stringent safety testing and product recalls to make sure we’re only operating safe and reliable vehicles. Sadly, dangerous products make their way onto the market now and then, resulting in consumer injury or death. Products liability laws exist in Georgia to ensure manufacturers continue to build their products as safely as possible.

Dozens nationwide contract illness from Costco frozen berry mix

In today’s world of product safety testing and FDA standards, we expect the things we buy--from the products we use to the food we eat--to be safe, without the risk of causing injury or sickness. Unfortunately, products do come on the market sometimes that are harmful, and result in consumer injury or death. And food in restaurants as well as storebought is sometimes tainted with bacteria or other substances that cause illness.
