If a product does not conform to specifications in a manner that makes it dangerous for use, then it can be termed as defective. Consumers who use such products in good faith and with knowledge defined as “common knowledge” are at risk of injury. The laws are not favorable to consumers but there are some ways to make sure that the product is recalled or that the defect is made known and sometimes a lawsuit on behalf of the consumer is needed.
If you suffer an injury from a defective product then the onus of proving the defect is on you and also that your injuries are a result of the said defect. Usually, manufacturers are held accountable under “strict liability” terms.
