When you walk into a store and buy, or order, a product, you are placing our trust in a lot of people. You assume something on the market will be safe. This assumption, frequently, proves to be a foolish one.
All too often, products are defective and dangerous, resulting in injury - sometimes, death. Product liability lawsuits serve a very important purpose: to make products safer by creating incentives for companies to create safer products.
Even when problems are discovered and a recall is issued, the products still stay on the shelves and fall into the wrong hands: those of the innocent consumer. Or sometimes you have purchased a defective product and the recall is alerted, and you may or may not have been notified in time before something tragic occurred.
