Defective Products & Appliances

You may take it for granted that the household items you use are safe, but sometimes a product you thought would never hurt you turns out to be defective and can injure you or someone you care about. 
Defective household products can result in serious injuries or even death, and may result in a product liability claim. Product liability refers to the liability of a manufacturer, distributor or another party in the chain of distribution involved in the production and sale of a defective product.

Some of the most common types of defective household items include:

  • Defective Electrical Appliances (hotplates, microwaves, toasters, coffee makers, lamps, dishwashers, heaters)
  • Defective Furniture (baby cribs, bookshelves, beds, dressers)
  • Defective Personal Grooming Items (hairdryers, curling irons, electric shavers)
Defective household products can be voluntarily recalled by the manufacturer or can be subject to a recall by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission. For up-to-date information on recent product recalls, visit United States Consumer Product Safety Commission.
It is the responsibility of manufacturers and suppliers to protect and warn the user of their product against injuries. Defective household products that pose the risk of injury or death can results in liability to the manufacturers, distributors and sellers who are responsible for the safety of their products and for warning consumers of any dangers associated with their products. 

Manufacturers, distributors and sellers can be held responsible for defective products due to:

  • Defects in Design
  • Defects in Manufacturing
  • Incomplete or Incorrect Instructions
  •  Improper Warnings
  • Failure to Live Up to Warranty
