Consumer and Industrial Products Can Be Dangerous

At Ponce Law, our Nashville defective product lawyers focus plenty of time and attention handling cases where innocent victims are injured or suffer illnesses related to defective medical devices.

But it’s important for Middle Tennessee residents to remember that the cases we handle aren’t limited to just medical devices. Ordinary industrial and consumer products also have the potential to be dangerous and even deadly, and when people are hurt by those products, they should have the same rights as people who were harmed by medical products.

A few common consumer and industrial products that are linked to serious injuries, health problems, and complications include:

  • Asbestos—Although its usage in most products has been on a significant decline since the 1970s, asbestos is still present in many homes and buildings. It’s linked to deadly health problems, including a form of lung cancer called mesothelioma.
  • E-cigarettes—Electronic cigarettes are increasing in popularity every year, and many smokers use them as replacements for ordinary cigarettes. But they can be dangerous, especially when they overheat, as their batteries can explode or catch fire.
  • Weed killers—A popular herbicide called Roundup® contains glyphosate, a chemical that’s linked to cancers such as non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Exposure to the dangerous chemical can occur via respiration, skin absorption, or consuming contaminated food and water.

If you or someone you love were hurt by a consumer or industrial product, we’re here to help. We have the experience, resources, and dedication you need to get the compensation your family deserves after an industrial or consumer product injury. Call today for a free consultation.
