Every year we hear in the news about injury caused by defective products. Examples of defective products, and those with potential for defects, can be seemingly never ending. Children’s products, vehicles, firearms, prescription drugs- the list goes on. Manufacturers who make any product are held to a standard to make sure that they are producing a safe, quality product for all those who purchase them. So, what happens when you purchase defective products? Should you be held liable for the mistake made by another person or company? The answer to that question is absolutely not.
Each year, approximately 100,000 people die due to side effects caused by prescription drugs. Many more are injured either temporarily or permanently. If a pharmaceutical company creating a product that is on par with industry standards and regulations, this can be fatal for consumers. Other groups that can be held liable in the event of a defective pharmaceutical product are pharmacists and doctors alike.
Parents want the best for their kids, which is why they only purchase children and nursery products that are safe and effective-or so they think. Defective children’s products can be devastating for parents and kids both. Between years 2010-2012, there were reports of 311 deaths related to defective nursery products. This tragically equates to 104 deaths every year. Those who are held responsible in liability cases are often the manufacturers who produce these faulty products.
