How Do Defective Products Make It To Consumers?
In some situations, defective products pass safety tests and are released to consumers without anyone catching the defects. However, other product defects are ignored in an effort to save money. Manufacturers knowingly put consumers at risk by deciding it will be cheaper to pay potential personal injury lawsuits than to recall a product.
Jack Sileo and Casey Moll expose negligence by reviewing all the facts surrounding the product. For example, when multiple consumers complain about the same defect, it’s likely that the product was defective. Did the manufacturer know about the defect before it was released? Did the manufacturer have patents or make design improvements to prevent future injuries but decide against manufacturing the improvements because of cost?
