Atlanta Defective Product Attorneys Discuss Five Reasons for Product Recalls

The Atlanta defective product lawyers of Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. have extensive experience with cases that involve injuries caused by products. An attorney at one of our eight locations in Georgia is ready to assist you in your injury case. These types of cases often hinge on strict liability rather than negligence.

Below, the lawyers at our firm discuss five reasons why products are recalled:

The product was not designed properly
The product was made poorly
The product is dangerous
The product cannot be used in the manner it was intended
The warnings on the product are insufficient

The product was not designed properly

A recall may occur when the entire design of a product is unsafe and the product is unreasonably dangerous. For example, if a childproof container is not childproof, the manufacturer of the container can be liable for injuries that occur.

The product was made poorly
When the design of a product is proper, but the manufacturer makes it in an unsafe fashion, a recall may be in order to avoid liability.

The product is dangerous
If a product creates a hazard when it is used, it may be recalled. Tires that blow out under ordinary circumstances or car engines that catch fire are examples of hazards that merit a recall.

The product cannot be used in the manner it was intended
Some products are safe until they are put to use. Breast implants or other types of implants such as hip implants that cause injury are examples of products that merit a recall.

The warnings on the product are insufficient
A product may be safe and free of defects. However, it may require warnings or instructions to make its use safe. Consumers have a right to be warned of potential dangers from foreseeable use of a product.
