How do I find out if a product that injured me was part of a recall?

 

A: You can find out if a product that caused your injuries was recalled by visiting the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) website. The CPSC serves to protect the public from dangerous products and the risks they pose, including serious injuries and death. Part of this mission includes listing product recalls for consumer goods that can cause serious or fatal injuries.

The CPSC alerts consumers to product recalls when that product poses a significant danger, such as:
 

  • fire hazard;
  • electrical hazard;
  • chemical hazard;
  • mechanical hazard; and
  • injury to children (choking hazard, strangulation risk, etc.). 


By informing the public of important product recalls, the CPSC reports it has contributed to a 30% decline in injuries and deaths resulting from the use of dangerous consumer products in the past 3 decades.

The CPSC particularly pays close attention to:
 

  • toys;
  • cribs;
  • power tools;
  • cigarette lighters; and
  • household chemicals. 


You can visit the CPSC home page to check for new product recalls or the recalls section to search by company, product description and date of recall. You can also join their e-mail subscription list to get recall notices as they are issued.

If you have been injured by a dangerous product, regardless of whether it was recalled, you should bring it to the attention of a Philadelphia dangerous products attorney
as soon as possible. If you have a legitimate case, you will need to provide your lawyer with evidence, so it can be preserved.

Your dangerous products claim could be against the manufacturer, wholesaler or retailer of the product. Your Philadelphia dangerous products attorney may be able to help you seek compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other case-specific considerations.
