RESEARCH & REPORT A DANGEROUS PRODUCT OR CONDITION
Part of our working mission includes researching and reporting unsafe products and conditions to federal government authorities for tracking adverse events and ultimately taking corrective action where necessary. Public policy can only act on current and accurate data and many companies do not take the action to self-report problems with their products -- as it is often against their interests. It is, however, in the strong interest and benefit of consumer product safety and public health for consumers and companies to report adverse events and dangerous conditions that are experienced or simply observed. Government agencies track most matters related to public safety including, but not limited to, roadways and utilities, pharmaceutical products, medical devices, industrial worksites, homes and apartments, automotive products, and general consumer products. The U.S Food and Drug Administration, US Environmental Protection Agency, The Federal Trade Commission, Consumer Product Safety Commission, and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration all include research on adverse events, product defects, and recalls. Specific examples of alleged defective products are listed above and discussed in more detail within the “Practice Areas” and “Current Litigations” and throughout this site. However, the U.S market is filled with dangerous products and new ones enter the market everyday many, oftentimes, entering with very little testing.
If you are aware of a situation that you consider dangerous and should be reported, you may submit that product through the contact section and we will forward that report onto the appropriate agency. Otherwise, we encourage you to take the steps to report it yourself.
