All consumer products are regulated and administered by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Food and Drug Administration, the Department of Agriculture, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

These government bodies recall products, which are defective and detrimental to the public's health. It is your responsibility to be responsive and alert to recalled products to avoid injury or death.

Unfortunately, defective products are not always recalled until they have already caused personal injuries or property damage. Consumer product manufacturers have a strict duty to subject their products to comprehensive and thorough safety tests before releasing the product to the public. However, safety tests may sometimes be rushed in an attempt to get a product out on the market earlier and quicker.

The injuries caused to individuals by recalled products are the result of either:

  • Defective design
  • Manufacturing error
  • Failure to warn the consumer about possible harm associated with the product
What To Do If You Are Injured Or If A Loved One Is Fatally Injured Due To A Recalled Product

If you or a loved one is involved in an accident due to a recalled product, it is imperative that you keep the product as evidence. Do not modify it in such ways as taking it apart or repairing it. The item must remain in its original format in order for you to be able to press charges against the manufacturer.

If you or a loved one has been injured or wrongfully killed as a result of an unsafe product in Massachusetts, contact the Boston wrongful death attorneys at Bellotti Law Group, P.C. today at 617-225-2100.
