Countless products are designed and released to consumers every year in the United States, all to serve a variety of purposes and functions. When these products work properly, they can be depended on by consumers, but if they are defective, they can pose serious injury risks. Product defects can be extremely dangerous, and are often the result of manufacturing or design errors, or even pure recklessness.
Common Product Defects
Depending on the product involved, product defects can involve a lot of different situations and circumstances. However, many defects recur in products across industries. For example, some of the most common product defects involve:
- Loose parts / choking hazards
- Mechanical defects
- Electrical malfunctions
- Exposure to toxic substances
These problems are more common than you might think and make up a number of serious product liability cases annually in the U.S. Unfortunately, the victims of these problems often suffer both physical and financial consequences. In addition to physical injuries, a victim of a dangerous product might also have to pay for expensive medical treatment or recovery costs.
