Product liability dangers may lurk in holiday gifts

Last year, hoverboards were a hot gift item for kids and adults alike. The appeal of cruising around on a small electric vehicle caused many Pittsburgh residents to include the electronics item on their wish lists. However, in the last 12 months, a number of families have come to discover a potential danger in these popular items: fire risks from defective charging and electrical systems.

Hoverboards are just one of the many gift items that retailers and manufacturers have been forced to recall when deemed defective and dangerous to consumers. Products should be safe and properly labeled to ensure that purchasers and those who receive the items as gifts can safely use them for their enjoyment. When products pose risks that consumers cannot anticipate or avoid though, manufacturers and others involved in putting those goods into the market may be liable for the injuries the products cause.

The law firm of Savinis Kane & Gallucci represent individuals who have suffered injuries and losses due to dangerous and defective products. These product liability lawsuits are based on the negligent actions of product designers, makers and sellers who have duties to ensure that the items they sell are reasonably safe. When they fail, they should be held responsible for the harm that their products inflict on victims.

A product-based injury during the holidays should not derail a consumer's future in the New Year. Victims have legal options to help them recover from these injuries. Readers with product liability concerns are invited to visit Savinis Kane & Gallucci online through the firm's product liability website.
