An accident can change your life in the blink of an eye. Motor vehicle crashes, poorly devised products, and improperly maintained equipment all have the potential to cause serious injury or even death. When you are involved in an accident, your immediate priority is to recover or mourn a loss. It can be difficult to think about legal ramifications. However, as reality sets in, you may realize the practical consequences of an injury, such as loss of wages and suffering. That is why you need a qualified personal injury attorney on your side!
The Consumer Product Safety Commission recently announced three products that manufacturers are recalling because of the safety hazards they pose.

Since their debut on the market in 2007, e-cigarettes have been gaining popularity across the nation. The Federal Emergency Management Agency reports that over 2.5 million Americans use this device and the number of users is estimated to grow. Marketers highlight e-cigarettes as the safer alternative to regular cigarettes because they use vapor instead of smoke and allegedly have less nicotine. However, recent reports show that these products may pose risks of fires and burns.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently released a new list of recalled vehicles. They did so to protect consumers from errors made in design or production. A recall occurs when the manufacturers of a product or the NHTSA determine that a vehicle poses a danger to the driver, if it fails to meet safety standards. The manufacturers must notify the consumer and offer to replace, repair, or otherwise correct the error, free of charge.
UL Listing refers to recognition of an appliance's adherence to safety standards. The Underwriters Laboratories is an organization that tests, validates, and inspects certain products to ensure they meet the company's safety standards. Created in 1894 by William Henry Merrill, the organization helps limit product liability and protect consumers. If you ever noticed that some of your appliances have a UL Listing, it means the organization has examined the product and deemed it safe to use.
