We live in a world filled with technological advancements and we unconsciously rely on the integrity and expertise of manufacturers we will never meet face-to-face. Much of the time, products live up to our expectations, but when things go wrong, the results can sometimes be disastrous.
Every day people are injured-or even killed- due to the failure or defect of a product. Airbags malfunction, appliances do not come with proper warnings/instructions, and products fail because of shoddy construction or substandard materials.
Defective automobile design is a common cause of accidental injury or death.
