With the constant advances in technology, it is tough not to use and rely on a wide variety of consumer goods. While some of these products provide pure enjoyment, others serve vital roles, such as an automobile, household item or work tool. And, because of their resourcefulness, some consumers rely on these products on a daily basis. When a product malfunctions, however, this can cause huge upsets. While this could just mean the product no longer works, it could also mean it is defective and harmed the consumer using it.
In today's world, it is tough to get through the day without some type of consumer product. Whether you are using a computer, household item, tool or motor vehicle, these products are very efficient, helping us accomplish tasks we couldn't do without them. While consumer goods are helpful and often relied on, they are not always perfect. Consumer products are, unfortunately, subject to human errors, causing some to be defective or dangerous.
