Dangerous Defective Products Still in Use
Every year, defective products cause thousands of preventable injuries in the United States alone. Product liability can involve any type of consumer goods, from children’s products to toxic chemicals. Manufacturers and product designers have an obligation to put safety above profit, ensuring their products come with adequate instructions for proper use, and do not endanger people when used correctly.
Some examples of dangerous defective products that are still in use include:
- Medical devices – DePuy hip implants, Zimmer knee implants, transvaginal mesh, etc.
- Dangerous drugs – Lexapro, Effexor, Yaz, Prozac, Accutane, Paxil, Zoloft, Crestor, Avandia, and many more.
- Defective vehicles – Isuzu Rodeo Sport, Isuzu Amigo, Chevy Cruze, Toyota Camry, Ford Expedition, Ford Explorer, and many more.
- Baby and kids’ products – Drop-side cribs, pocket bikes, airsoft guns, child car seats, and more.
