It seems reasonable to assume that the products you buy from the store are safe. Unfortunately, that is not always the case, as some defective and dangerous products make it to the shelves. Often, these issues only become evident after innocent customers get seriously injured or sick. In those cases, the manufacturer may issue a recall to remove risky products from the market.
Our attorneys want you to know that you have rights if you were hurt by a consumer product. Injuries due to defective and dangerous products happen far more often than you may think. Below, we outline a few of the latest products that have been recalled due to hazardous defects.

Recovering Compensation for Product-Related Injuries and Damages
Manufacturers that issue recalls often offer a remedy to consumers who were injured or suffered other losses due to the defective product. However, those remedies may not be enough to compensate victims for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. In these situations, filing a product liability lawsuit may be the only way to move forward financially.
