Understanding Product Liability

Each year, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that 29 million people are injured and more than 20,000 people die as a result of products that are defectively marketed, manufactured or designed. As a result, accidents from consumer products cost the U.S. over $700 billion each year.

At Harrison Davis Steakley Morrison, Jones, we represent clients across the country who have been injured due to a defective product. We handle all types of death and injury claims, such as those due to defective car and auto parts, defective medical devices, dangerous drugs and more.

The CPSC lists many recalls on their website. Current recalls include infant rattles, baby carriers, pacifiers, electric grinders and more. There is also a wealth of information on various products like pools, spas, magnets, cribs and fireworks. If you want more information about a recall you heard about, the CPSC is a good place to start.
