Most of the things you buy on a regular basis are perfectly safe. They have been time tested, engineered, and manufactured in a way to ensure they are safe to use and operate on a regular basis without harm to the user. Most manufacturers put in extraordinary effort the ensure their products are strong, and will not harm the end user.
Unfortunately, there are times with manufacturers overlook things. Maybe the item they’re creating wasn’t tested in the right way. Possibly they use non-standard materials in its construction. Quality Assurance testing isn’t performed, or isn’t performed regularly and properly.
It is at these times, when an item you purchase wasn’t built in the way it should have been that Product Liability Litigation can protect you. Product Liability Litigation is an area of law that focuses on manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers, and others who make products available to the public.
When a product isn’t built correctly, or has the potential to harm its user. When that harm does unfortunately occur, that is when Product Liability Litigation comes in to protect others who have purchased that item.
Product Liability Litigation is one of the ways our society uses to notify producers, distributors, suppliers, and retailers that they are giving the public something harmful. It is what leads to that product being recalled or discontinued. It puts the company on notice that there is an issue, and it needs to be fixed immediately or they face additional litigation, fines, and settlements against them.
Once a company is put on notice that a product they are making can potentially harm its users, they are compelled to make whatever changes are necessary to ensure the public’s safety. Many additional cases have been won, and settlements received because a company was put on notice but they failed to react as they should have to protect their customers.
