Over 20,000 people die each year in the United States due to defective products. When a manufacturer or retailer chooses profitability takes priority over safety, customers pay the price. Whether foreign or domestic, a manufacturer is expected to foresee any safety issues, and address them before the product is launched, ensuring a safe product is put on the market. This means the manufacturer is often required to do extensive testing on the product to ensure its safety. When a defect exists, such as an unsafe or defective product design or if the manufacturer did not provide adequate instruction for the product’s use, the product is not considered safe.
