What Makes a Product Dangerous?

Trusted Legal Counsel from Our North Carolina Personal Injury Lawyers

Despite the many safety regulations that govern the marketplace today, dangerous products still make it into the hands and homes of people across the country on a regular basis.

Countless factors can contribute to unsafe products:

  • Sometimes manufacturers cut corners in an effort to keep costs down and remain profitable. They might fail to conduct thorough enough tests to detect problems. They may overlook a key safety concern or fail to provide adequate warnings.
  • Other times, a one-off defective product slips through quality assurance off the factory line unnoticed.
  • A product's design in and of itself may be dangerous.
  • A product might not have adequate instructions about how to use it properly or warnings about potential dangers.

Any one of these scenarios can lead to a ticking time bomb that, in essence, explodes in the hands of the consumer.

What to Do if You’ve Been the Victim of an Unsafe Product

When you've suffered serious injuries or lost a loved one because of a dangerous product, you may feel betrayed. You're likely wondering how such a product could ever have made it onto the shelves. Through the legal system, you can fight to hold the manufacturer, designer, and other responsible parties accountable. A successful product liability claim will not only provide you with the compensation you deserve, but will also make it less likely that others will suffer the same tragedy.

  • I cannot express in words how confident you will feel by having Tara in charge of your case

    “Tara Kay Johnson did an awesome job! If you're like me, you didn't think something like this would happen to you, but there you are at that moment in your life with a lot of questions and very few answers... doubt and emotion starts to take over, but fear not. As with many folks who have to go through this unfortunate event in your life, you want the strongest and most well-respected representation you can find. That is exactly what I received. Tara will listen to your concerns and stand up for you, while at the same time she will also recommend the absolute best course of action.

During my case, there was not a single moment where I felt vulnerable or a moment where I wondered what the outcome would be. Tara and her very well-educated staff were with me every step of the way. Communication and support was excellent throughout the entire process. The bottom line is: If you or someone you know is heading down the tough road to divorce, then you need the BEST guide you can find, and that is Tara Kay Johnson.”
