We expect the products we purchase to be designed and manufactured in such a manner that they are safe. We also expect that the manufacturer will provide reasonable warnings of product dangers and recalls. Yet, every year thousands of consumers are seriously injured or die as a result of defective or faulty products. When medical device manufacturers fail to properly ensure that their products are designed with safety in mind, they should be held legally accountable for the injuries caused by their products. A defective product lawsuit may be necessary to compensate an innocent victim, alert the public about the dangerous product, and create an economic incentive for the manufacturing company to produce safe products and provide sufficient warning of the dangers of their products, ultimately resulting in the saving of lives.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Bed Handles Inc., of Blue Springs, Mo., have recalled over 110,000 adult portable bed handles after three woman reportedly died after becoming entrapped between the mattress and the bed handles. All three victims were living in an assisted living or adult family home at the time. An investigation into the product revealed that the handles are dangerous because they can shift away from the mattress, creating a gap that disabled or elderly patients can fall in to and potentially strangle or become trapped.
Although the recall comes too late to save the three lives that were lost, the families of the victims might have a legitimate injury claim against the nursing home/assistant living center and the product manufacturer. It is important that they contact an experienced personal injury attorney to understand their rights. Once a lawsuit is filed, if these families need financial assistance until the case settles, they may be able to procure litigation funding.
