Every year, 34 million people are injured or killed as a result of product related accidents. The estimated cost of these injuries is $12 billion annually. Recent years have witnessed a large increase in the number of defective automobiles and automobile components like airbags, starters, and emission systems. Other products commonly implicated in injuries include ATVs, cribs and playpens, space heaters, chemicals, home appliances, surgical implants and pharmaceuticals.
