When we go to a store and buy a product, usually the last thing on our mind is inspecting the product for deadly diseases or potentially unsafe aspects of it. Unfortunately, according to Massachusetts personal injury lawyers with Crowe & Mulvey, in many cases, unsafe products make their way on to the very shelves we buy from. We have seen this recently in one of the most popular brands in the United States, Blue Bell. The ice cream was found to contain the bacteria Listeria and Blue Bell products were quickly recalled and pulled from shelves. However, like in many cases, damage had already been done leaving 3 dead from listeriosis.
Unsafe products can have terrible effects on individuals, leading to injuries and, in the worst situations, death. According to the website of Pohl & Berk, LLP attorneys, because manufacturers are expected to create safe products for purchase, when they fail to do so, the company can be held accountable for harm caused by their products.
Unsafe products can not only cause extensive medical bills, but lead to health complications that can last a lifetime. Product recalls are becoming more and more constant in the United States and thus the medical problems that arise with them. When unsafe products cause health and safety problems, the individual can be subject to compensation for their suffering. In fact, according to the website of the LaMarca Law Group, P.C., even products that are subjected to recall can cause harm to consumers and thus owe individuals compensation.
It is a terrifying reality that the products we often use everyday can lead to medical problems and even, in some cases, death. When we buy a product, we expect that the company has provided us with a safe and reliable product. When companies do not do this, the distress can be life changing. Even against the biggest companies in the world, individuals should be able to receive compensation for their damages due to an unsafe product.
