Like most consumers, we trust that the makers and manufacturers of goods we purchase will not sell us products that will cause us harm. Whether the product is a food, device or drug, we trust that it has been fully tested and that we have been properly warned of any and all hazards associated with the product.
Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

Common Items That Can Be The Cause Of A Class Action Lawsuit
Due to the strict manufacturing laws that are in place for most industries, consumers have been accustomed to products performing as they are advertised - provided that they are used in the way they were intended. Unfortunately, due to mass-production techniques and questionable sources of raw materials, sometimes things can go wrong.
A list of common products that have been cause for serious personal injury and subsequent class action lawsuits, may include:
- seat belt failure
- car roofs crushing instead of protecting their occupants in a crash
- power tool failure causing serious injury
- building materials causing health problems
- pharmaceutical products
- poorly designed and manufactured footwear
- defective household chemicals
- tobacco products
- sporting and recreational goods
.... just to name a few.
