Many product recall and consumer safety cases have had a positive impact on public health and well-being, and we have witnessed improved lives and future injuries prevented as companies are forced to remove toxic or dangerous products and warnings as a result of litigation.
Product liability lawsuits may be viable if a product was being used as intended and caused a serious injury through no fault of the end user. If a consumer has used cosmetics and suffered a burn injury or has developed cancer as a result, they can contact an attorney to investigate and build a case against the manufacturer.
The FDA publishes a list of all recalled cosmetics, though just because a product has not been recalled doesn’t mean it isn’t dangerous. Many flammable cosmetics have been on the market for years and reports of burn injuries go unreported.

Defective consumer products present safety and health hazards for both adults and children. Cheap and toxic cosmetics may pose fire and burn risks as well as toxic exposure cancer risks. The manufacturers of cosmetics have a duty to foresee potential injury and properly test products before they are released.
Companies must also properly warn consumers of any risks associated with their products. Any failure to protect consumers that results in accidents and burn injury can lead to flammable cosmetics lawsuits filed by plaintiffs and their product liability lawyer.
