Product Recall

Trust Your Case to Our Rhode Island Product Liability Lawyer

Products are recalled, sometimes voluntarily, by the company that manufactured the product or by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, which is responsible for keeping defective products away from the public. A product is usually recalled because it poses a serious or unforeseen threat to the general public. Safe, everyday items are occasionally manufactured with a defect making the product potentially dangerous.

What are the Most Commonly Recalled Products?

Any product can be subject to a recall but there are a few categories of products that are recalled more than others. Children’s toys and products and automobiles are some of the most commonly recalled products on the consumer market today.

Children's Products

Children’s products are often the subject of voluntary recalls. Toys, car seats, clothing, cribs, strollers, and high chairs have all been subject to recall. The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission lists on their website hundreds of recalls for children items. Many children's product recalls make national headlines, but many do not. Depending on the defective product, injuries can range from minor burns and cuts, to amputations, and even death.

Cars, Auto Parts, and Auto Accessories

When it comes to product recalls, the automobile industry is the undisputed king. Millions of cars are recalled every year for varying problems ranging from the very minor to the very serious. The automotive defect can often result in serious and fatal car accidents. In recent years, in particular, with the Toyota acceleration scare, the public has become extremely aware of the dangers of a defective product within a vehicle.

Some of the potentially fatal flaws in an automobile (whether recalled or not) include:

  • Driver losing control of the car (i.e. Toyota acceleration cases)
  • Brake failure
  • Airbag deployment failure
  • Electrical problems leading to fire
  • Seatbelt failure
  • Tire failure
  • SUV rollovers (a design defect that made certain early SUVs very likely to roll over)
  • Any other mechanical malfunction that leads to an auto accident

Client Reviews
"I am so grateful to you Joe. Not only was I thrilled with the amount of money that I received in my settlement but I never thought that I would receive it so quick and without filing a lawsuit! You're the best!" Adam G.
"Joe asked me what I wanted in settlement during one of our meetings. I told him I wanted my medical bills paid (about $12,000) and I wanted $10,000 in my pocket. We just settled for $100,000! I never thought my case was worth that much. Thank you so much Joe." Justine D.
"Joseph is an excellent attorney that has been handling everything for the accident I was involved in. Joe has a great understanding of the auto accident process and he was able to explain it to me in a way that I understood. To this point, everything that Joe explained to me has happened according to plan. I have found Joe to be extremely knowledgeable and honest, and would highly recommend him to anyone." Steve C.
"Attorney Lamy answered my initial inquiry personally. He was very attentive and made himself available throughout the course of my case. He kept me informed and up to date and made sure I understood the whole process. I would certainly recommend Attorney Lamy to anyone I know who was in need of legal counsel." Alex D.
"I've never dealt with lawyers before, until I was involved in an accident. I wasn't sure if I even had a case, but I'll tell you what, Joe was there for me every step of the way. He was open, honest and caring. He answered all my questions and was always there for me when I needed him. He ensured me he would take care of everything and not to worry, and he did! I couldn't have asked for a better settlement or lawyer. He went above and beyond!!!!" Danny S.
