What is the product recall process?

Christmas and other holidays celebrated in the winter are an exciting time. Many gifts are exchanged and individuals in Virginia and elsewhere are excited to try out these new items. It may seem obviously, but these gifts are purchased and exchanged with the idea that they will work as they were intended. Unfortunately, some of these items may not work properly, at all or even cause a consumer to suffer injuries. In these matters, it is important for consumers to consider their rights and options if such a situation arises.

What is a manufacturing defect?

With the holidays in full swing, many are purchasing last minute gifts. Whether it is a new, hot item or something that has been on the market for some time, consumers expect that what they are purchasing will work as advertised. Unfortunately, errors could be made when a product is designed, manufactured and sold. Such errors could lead to defects, causing a product to not work, malfunction and even become dangerous. Such a situation could result in a consumer suffering serious injuries and damages.

You may want to think twice before buying some toys

Toys have been, and remain, popular Christmas gifts to give to children and babies. Kids in Roanoke, Virginia, often enjoy playing with toys of all types, and that inherent gratitude can give the adults in their lives a lot of pleasure as well.

Data suggests distracted driving increases during holidays

With the holiday season already in full swing, there are many expectations. To begin, one is likely to spend time with family. Additionally, presenting giving and receiving will also occur. Finally, many residents in Virginia and elsewhere can expect to travel by motor vehicle to get to these holiday gatherings and celebrations. This time behind the wheel could be something that can create unhappiness this holiday season. Not just because traffic is likely to be bad, but also because many drivers will be tempted to use their phones while driving.
