Every person encounters consumer products every day. We eat food for breakfast, were drive our cars to work and we take elevators to our office. After work, we come home to our families, use appliances to cook dinner, our children play with toys and babies are put to sleep in their cribs. On the weekends, power tools are used for projects around the home and various pieces of equipment our used to landscape our yards. Most products become a part of our daily lives.
Many products are safely designed and pose no risk. However, some products which are improperly designed, constructed or which fail to warn about hidden dangers cause severe injuries or death.

Such products very often result in permanent, catastrophic and disabling injuries. These injuries cause immense pain and suffering as well as mounting medical expenses and lost wages.
