When you purchase or use a product, whether it’s a household product or a medical device, you expect it to be safe and to work as intended. After all, the U.S. has many regulatory agencies that are supposed to thoroughly test and review all new products. However, some product manufacturers put dangerous products on the market by hiding product defects or publishing misleading information concerning their product safety testing.
There are a wide range of defective products that can be harmful to consumers. Common everyday products that are potentially dangerous in 2019 include e-cigarettes, which can catch fire or explode, and Roundup® weed killer, which is linked to cancer. Certain medical products can also be extremely dangerous. Joint replacements can break down inside the body, causing severe inflammation and bleeding, while defective pacemakers and IVC filters can cause potentially fatal complications.
Product manufacturers are often billion-dollar corporations, and that can make victims hesitant to file claims or pursue compensation. But at Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we aren’t afraid of standing up to these big companies. Regardless of their size, negligent companies that put their customers’ health and even lives at risk should be held liable for the damages they cause.
