Have you been hurt by an inherently dangerous or unsafe product?

Each year, millions of products are bought and sold. Subsequently, many individuals are injured or killed by dangerous products.

Household items are products we use at home, which include bed mattresses, appliances, furniture and cleaning supplies. Unfortunately, by using these products, the element of danger may not be so obvious or transparent.  For instance, using non-stick cookware at high temperatures can release toxic gasses that can cause cancer, organ failure and other illnesses.

Did you know that clothes, shoes, exercise equipment and hair dryers can be considered dangerous products? Children’s clothes are frequently recalled for potentially dangerous products. For an up-to-date listing, you can visit Parents.com.

Recreational items such as bicycles, ATV’s, and even sporting goods can be considered unsafe products. Product liability cases have been brought against recreational items. ATV’s – ATV’s have consistently known to hurl riders violently to the ground. ATV’s have a long list of recalls; they have also been known to be recalled due to fire hazards and possible explosions.  Sporting Goods Products – Bicycles, helmets and even dart games have all frequented recall lists. Head and neck injuries have been the result of many bicycle accidents.  Guns & firearms – The accidental discharge of a firearm can (of course) have devastating consequences.
