Products liability is one of the fastest growing legal fields. When you purchase or use an item, you assume that it has been designed and manufactured to perform safely as long as you use it as it was intended to be used. Most of the time, this is a safe assumption. But sometimes an item is designed or manufactured in such a way as to cause serious personal injury even when it is being used according to its directions.
This can happen at home or in the workplace. Cars and SUVs that roll over too easily when performing basic turning maneuvers, forklifts with defective braking systems, and power saws that do not have an automatic shut-off system are all examples of defective products that can cause serious, even fatal, injuries. Another group of product liability cases involve drugs that are not reasonably safe. A recent example of this would be the fen-phen weight loss drug cases from several years back. In those cases, a drug that had been found to be safe by the FDA was later found to cause heart valve defects, causing permanent injury or death.
When the drug and other product manufacturers disregard their duty to provide safe products to the users of those products, they must be held accountable for any injuries or deaths that result. And if you've been injured by a product that you used correctly and in good faith, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries.
