Consumer Products

Across the world, death and serious injuries occur from Consumer Products all too often.  This site is dedicated to help raise awareness to these products that we hope will decrease the amount of these tragedies.  Education is the key to consumer protection and we hope to be the best resource available.

Consumer Safety

Consumer Safety

If you read the basic mission of the Consumer Product Safety Commission in the United States, you see that it is charged with, “Protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of the thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction.” And yet, if you read a bit farther you see something quite startling. What is so startling? Even though this group admits that its sworn duty is to protect consumers, there are more than $1 trillion in costs related to death, injury, and property damage due to unsafe or unhealthy products each year.

Medical Dangers

Medical Dangers

Every year in the United States, millions of people go through medical treatments and surgeries to help them with their health issues. However, these treatments also come with risks. There is the potential of medical malpractice or a recall on, for example, a metal hip replacement. Many thousands of hip replacement pieces have been recalled in the United States in the past years, which means that those patients who have the device inside their bodies will need another surgery to get the piece removed. This increases the patient’s health risks and medical expenses.
