Thousands are affected each year by defective products and this puts consumers at risk for serious injuries. Companies are responsible for designing, manufacturing, and selling products that are reliable and safe for consumers. However, consumers must do their part too. Always contact a company if you notice that their product has a defect. This will help the company alert other consumers of potential danger if they know of the problem. You should also contact a product liability attorney if you are injured by a product. Companies may be held liable for any injuries their products cause. An experienced attorney will be able to determine if you have grounds to pursue legal action for your injuries.
