Unsafe Products

Unfortunately, it takes injuries, or sometimes even deaths, before manufacturers of unsafe products are forced to take them off the market. Even after unsafe products are removed from store shelves, they can still be found in our homes, offices and schools. The Corson & Johnson Law Firm aggressively pursues unsafe product cases to hold manufacturers accountable for the harm and risk they’ve caused to unsuspecting consumers. Some of the most commonly recalled products include:

  • Children’s toys
  • Medical equipment
  • Tools
  • Appliances
  • Vehicles
  • Prescribed and over-the-counter medications

3 Steps to Take If You Suspect an Unsafe Product

Thousands of different products are sold every year. Unfortunately, the government agencies responsible for checking products are underfunded. Sometimes, they must rely on the manufacturer’s “research” to determine the safety of a product. It is important that consumers report product defects or dangers they find, because others may be experiencing the same problem. The sooner unsafe products are removed from the market, the safer we will all be.

If you suspect a product is unsafe:

  1. Check with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to see if the product has been recalled.
  2. If you don’t see the product listed, file a complaint with the CPSC.
  3. Contact The Corson & Johnson Law Firm.

If you believe that a medication, food, nutrition product, cosmetic or makeup product, or a medical device is unsafe:

  1. Report the problem to the Food and Drug Administrations’s MedWatch reporting system.
  2. Contact The Corson & Johnson Law Firm.

If you are seriously injured by an unsafe product or know of recalled unsafe products that are in the community, contact The Corson & Johnson Law Firm.

 

Holding Unsafe Manufacturers Accountable

The Corson & Johnson Law Firm is experienced in unsafe product litigation. Our cases have revealed corporate wrongdoing, including manufacturers who knew or should have known that their products were dangerous, and products manufactured in another country that did not meet U.S. standards.

These irresponsible companies sometimes value profits over the health and safety of their customers. It frequently takes legal intervention to force manufacturers to admit mistakes and produce safer products.

Injured people may be reluctant to go up against big corporations and their legal and financial resources. We show our clients that, with our help, they CAN stand up for what’s right and compel companies to either accept responsibility or be held accountable. The product liability attorneys at The Corson & Johnson Law Firm have forced these “Goliaths” to pay damages to injured individuals and produce safer products. We empower our clients with the knowledge that when people stand up to demand change, the entire community benefits.
