Manufacturers have a strict duty to use reasonable care in designing, manufacturing, and marketing their products. Consumer goods should work as intended, while reducing the risk of personal harm as much as possible. Moreover, consumer businesses are required to warn consumers clearly of a product’s potential risks.
Our nation’s product liability laws are clear: consumers have a right to the safest products possible. Despite these strong legal protections, thousands of consumers are injured every year by defective products that were sold without adequate warnings. In fact, the Consumer Product Safety Commission says that product defects cost the United States over $1 trillion annually. Many of these expenses come to burden individual accident victims, who can be saddled by extraordinary medical expenses, pain, and suffering.
