Dangerous household products are all too common in our industrialized society. Manufacturers and vendors of products containing dangerous chemicals or other hazardous components owe a duty of care to potential customers. If products do not have clear, prominent warning labels and people are injured while using them in reasonable manners, the injury victims may bring claims for compensation against those who made and sold the products.
Household chemicals and items in medicine cabinets are particularly hazardous to both children and adults. Children are particularly vulnerable to risks posed by dangerous chemicals and medications in homes. Safe Kids USA reports that more than 100 children aged 14 and under die each year from unintentional poisoning. Other types of hazardous household products may include grocery items, common household tools and cleaning supplies, electrical appliances, and fixtures such as bathtubs and toilets.
