Defective Products – Hidden and Unforeseen Dangers

Consumers are completely trusting when it comes to the products that they use on a daily basis. Many assume that these products have been properly tested and that any and all dangers have either been eliminated or have been adequately warned about. This, however, is not always the case.

In fact, some of the most benign products can be some of the most dangerous and can cause some of the most devastating injuries to the unwitting. For example, Sketcher Shape-Ups have recently come under scrutiny for leaving the consumer at a complete danger for stress fractures and falls.

Although designed to be a tool for fitness, the unique sloping sole, created to destabilize the user and therefore require more active muscle usage while walking, can backfire. While they are successful in getting the user to more actively participate in balance, they can actually create a very real hazard.

By throwing off the balance of the user, the user can easily trip or fall as they are not in full control of their actions - leaving them vulnerable to falling and tripping, which can lead to extremely damaging injuries.

Shoes, however, are not the only product that can seem safe when they actual possess very real dangers. Even something as benign as a baby monitor can be the cause of devastating fires and strangulation hazards for young children and infants.
