Cleveland Product Liability Attorneys · Ohio Dangerous Drugs Lawyers
Despite the FDA's assurances that pharmaceutical products and medical devices are safe, and despite the strongest consumer protection laws in the world, the American marketplace is full of products that are inherently dangerous by design, or are manufactured with defects that slip past quality control. Many of these products are manufactured in foreign countries such as China, where safety and quality controls may be lacking.
Some Products Are Inherently Dangerous – Regardless of the Warnings and Instructions
Not all injuries from dangerous products will result in legitimate product liability lawsuits. In fact, if the nature of the product is dangerous in itself, it is extremely difficult to prove that a defect caused the injury.
Some products, however, are designed and approved for the market because they are safe for consumer use or consumption, even when not used exactly according to the manufacturer's specific instructions. If you are grilling burgers on an outdoor gas grill, for example, you have a right to expect that the propane tank will not explode — even if you did not clean the grill exactly according to manufacturer's specific instructions.
