Injuries Caused by Defective Products
Every day you are surrounded by and rely on manufactured, man-made products to help you do your job, get around town and even take care of your family. Like most people, you put your life, your safety and your trust in the hands of the people who developed and manufactured the products you rely on. But it’s important to remember that no matter what products and objects you bring into your life and the lives of your family members, those products are made by people and that means that mistakes can happen.
Mistakes in the manufacturing process can make the products you use less safe, and in turn, puts your family in jeopardy. Defective products can be anywhere and it is important to recognize those products and begin making ourselves and our families safer. These products include automobiles, baby products, such as cribs and strollers, exercise and sports equipment, food products, shoes and anything else that is man-made.
Why Defective Products Are So Dangerous
It is both incredibly easy and very common for people to be injured by defective products. These injuries often happen due to manufacturer or developer negligence. Defective products are particularly dangerous because they can cause severe, unexpected and unavoidable injuries. No person expects the wheels to fall off of a stroller, the brakes to fail on their brand new vehicle, or the heel to break off on a high heeled shoe while walking down a flight of stairs. But these types of accidents do occur and they often lead to serious injuries. The most common injuries caused by defective products include:
- Broken bones
- Sprains and strains to the neck, back and other body parts
- Suffocation, especially for children who become caught in defective products
- Death caused by a large number of different accidents
- Traumatic brain injuries caused by lack of oxygen, hitting your head or being impaled
