Each year, thousands of Americans are injured or killed by products that fail, and as a result, create harmful, hazardous or deadly situations. Defective products cause 38.6 million injuries annually and more than 35,900 deaths in Florida and around the U.S., according to the Consumer Products Safety Commission.
Products commonly found to be made in violation of safety rules include: tobacco and cigarettes, firearms, toxic products or chemicals, medical supplies, surgical implants and pharmaceuticals. Other potentially defective products include automobiles, tires, seat belts, passenger restraints or air bags. In the home, potentially defective products include: cribs, window shade cords, car seats, children’s toys, bicycles, and scooters. On the worksite, potentially defective products include: power tools, cranes, scaffolding, and heavy construction equipment. Defects can be caused by negligent design, manufacturing, construction, or the use of insufficient, improper or limited product warnings or labeling.
