A closer look at dangerous consumer products
Millions of products are used by U.S. consumers every day. While most of these products are safe, that is not always the case. Consider the following statistics from the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission:
- Dangerous products are related to 28,200 deaths and 33.6 million injuries each year.
- More than 200,000 children are treated in U.S. emergency rooms each year due to toy-related injuries alone.
- Deaths, injuries and property damage cost the nation more than $700 billion annually.
During the 2007 fiscal year, a record-breaking 473 recall announcements had consumer protection agencies up in arms. However, the number of recalls in 2008 was even greater, reaching 563 — a 19 percent increase over 2007. More than 43 million products were recalled in fiscal year 2008. More than half of all recall notices were for children's products. (Source: Consumers Union)
Mainly due to this large number of product recalls in 2007, congress passed the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) on Aug. 14, 2008. But many of the law's tighter restrictions didn’t go into effect until 2010 or later.

The Law Offices of James Scott Farrin works on a contingency fee arrangement. That is another way of saying that the attorney's fee is based on a percentage of the gross recovery. While a case may have fees and costs associated with it, there is no hourly or flat fee charged by the firm. Simply put, if you do not recover compensation from your claim, there is no attorney's fee. This allows the firm to bear the burden of investigating and pursuing your claim, which allows you to focus on your well being.
In certain cases, such as class actions, the court may specifically set the attorney fee, but in those situations the fee will still not exceed the contingent percentage in the firm's fee agreement.
