Danger lurks wherever we go, regardless of how we get there. Plane, trains and automobiles may be dangerous if not designed and used correctly. Even without leaving your home, the food you eat, the drugs you take, the appliances you use, sporting goods, tools and toys may harm your health or threaten your life.
All too often, unsuspecting consumers must learn about product defects the hard way. Each year, unsafe products kill an average of 28,000 consumers, and over 33 million suffer serious personal injuries. When dangerous or defective products kill or injure consumers, product liability law empowers consumers to hold manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, and retailers, responsible for the injuries their products cause.
