When we buy products, we assume they are safe. However, manufacturers in the U.S. and abroad may rush products to market without adequate testing to ensure they are safe. When those products are not safe, and they injure or kill a loved one, the victim of that wrongdoing deserves justice. Only a well-functioning civil justice system can ensure that the manufacturer is held accountable.
Unforeseen hazards are still finding their way into toys despite recently improved safety standards, illustrating the need for a strong civil justice system that protects children and holds delinquent manufacturers accountable.
Thousands of people are injured every year by dangerous and defective products that range from batteries to makeup, exercise equipment to children’s toys, automobile tires to prescription drugs. If you have been injured by a defective product, you have the right to hold the corporation who manufactured that product responsible.
In the face of such risks, and with so few resources at hand, the nation has come to rely on parents, consumer groups and the civil justice system to serve both as an early warning system and an enforcement mechanism against careless corporations and their dangerous toys.
