Common Examples of Product Defects

According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), more than 3,500 people died in a recent year due to consumer products. The same CPSC reports that millions of Americans every year are admitted to emergency rooms due to mishaps attributed to defective products.

The majority of defective product cases fall into three groups:

  • Sport/recreation equipment
  • Home structures and construction materials
  • Furnishings and fixtures within the home

Another group that often produces defective and sometimes dangerous products is the toy group. Many times children suffer as a result of these defective failures, making it a very serious matter.
