Hold Manufacturers Accountable For Dangerous Products

If consumers do not hold manufacturers held to a standard when their products malfunction, products themselves will only become more dangerous and less reliable. Product liability laws allow consumers to hold manufacturers at fault for defects in the products that they put on the market. If you or someone you know has been harmed by the failure of a defective or hazardous product, you have a legal right to hold the manufacturer responsible for your injuries or property damage.

Product Defects Are On The Rise

An unfortunate amount of products purchased by consumers today carry significant safety risks. Products defects can lead to many complications for their users, including serious injury or even death. Others may be fire hazards or cause other sorts of property damage to an unsuspecting consumer.

Despite the gambit of testing and safety agencies in the U.S. and the presence of consumer advocacy groups that evaluate new products hitting the market, product failure is still an increasing problem in today’s world. As manufacturers use cheaper materials to keep the costs of production lower and consumers gravitate towards lower priced options, the quality of items available suffers dramatically and makes device malfunction more common.

Make Companies And Retailers Uphold Their Warranties

Today, consumers see more guarantees and warranties for products than ever before. While these are all well and good when it comes to selling products to potential buyers, the willingness of a provider to actually support its warranty or a guarantee may not be anywhere near the level of commitment as originally advertised.

Many retailers also offer salesmen incentives to sell warranties, and this can lead to providing false information to a potential buyer to push the sale. This can unfortunately lead to situations where a retailer refuses to honor a warranty that they do explicitly cover.
