Billions of products are designed, manufactured, and distributed throughout the United States each year and consumers often assume that these products are safe. Thousands upon thousands of accidents, however, occur each year due to defective products. Although manufacturers are required by law to vigorously test their products to ensure that they meet both industry and government safety standards, there are still many defects that can and do exist. Whether or not a manufacture, business and/or corporation are aware that a product defect existed, they still can be held legally responsible. This is because they have the special care and duty of ensuring that a consumer is safe from any wrong doing. A manufacturer, business and/or corporation can also be held liable for a defective product even if a consumer is partially to blame for an accident. This is because human error must be taken into consideration when testing a product’s safety.
