Product Defect Attorney Advice Column Part 1

Each Monday, we will discuss a new topic regarding Product Liability issues in California and beyond. This week we discuss reporting defective products to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

Did you know that the primary function of CPSC is to protect the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death from numerous consumer products under its jurisdiction? Over the past three decades, the CPSC's efforts to ensure the safety of consumer products has played a considerable role in a 30 percent decline in the rate of personal injury and fatalities associated with hazardous products.

Each year, however, defective products still cause injury to an unacceptable number of U.S. consumers. Accordingly, the CPSC welcomes any and all reports submitted by consumers regarding unsafe or defective products. Reporting an unsafe product to CPSC is easy, and can be accomplished in a number of ways. You can report a defective product online, by e-mailing the Commission at:

You may additionally report dangerous products and/or defective products by telephoning the Commission at (800/638-2772, x650), or by facsimile (800/809-0924). Lastly, you can always snail mail the Commission by letter at U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Injury Report, Washington, DC 20207.

Take the time to protect your fellow consumers and citizens by following the steps listed above if you encounter issues with dangerous or defective products. If you have suffered personal injury as a result of your use or interaction with a defective product (a product with a defective design, a product with manufacturing defects or defective warnings), you need experienced legal counsel with significant experience in product liability matters.
