What You Need to Know About Recalled Products

All manner of companies and organizations work together to remove defective or potentially defective products from being sold on the American market. These may include those who design and engineer the product, manufacturers, independent consumer advocacy groups, and federal agencies. Given the incredible volume of products that go onto shelves across the United States every year, only a small number of faulty products or defective components in products are identified each year.

Categories of Product Recalls

Product recalls can be issued for many categories of products that include:

  • Foods
  • Auto parts
  • Pet foods
  • Exercise equipment
  • Electronic equipment
  • Household equipment
  • Furniture
  • Toys and other products intended for children
  • Clothing
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Medical products
  • Special industrial tools, dyes, and products

Tort laws were set up to deal with damages, injuries, or wrongful acts that were done deliberately, negligently, or in circumstances that involve strict responsibility and for which civil suits can be brought, though they do not involve breaches of contract. Such laws also govern how manufacturers and product designers should respond when a product is recalled.

When a defective product injures a person, that person or that person's legal representative can seek compensation through product liability law. This can be accomplished in a number of ways. A consumer may hold the inventor of the product accountable for designing an inherently unsafe product. He or she may also hold the manufacturer responsible for incorrectly assembling an otherwise safe product in a manner that makes it unsafe and allows injury. In some cases, a "failure to warn" claim can be made if a product can be dangerous under certain circumstances and there is no label warning of this.

There are all manner of questions that go through the head of a consumer injured by a defective or faulty product, and in such cases an experienced lawyer is a good person to have on your side. As an injured party, you may wonder if you have a case against the company that designed a product or the company that put it together. You may wonder how much compensation you should claim. You may wonder if you should join a class action lawsuit or file one individually. You may wonder how you are going to deal with the mounting medical bills from the injury. You may wonder how to discuss the matter with your own insurance company in order to protect your rights and your capacity to file a claim.
