On-site accidents can be detrimental to a business or organization. When a pedestrian gets hurt on your property, it can mean a long and painful process of inspections and litigation, not to mention the heavy monetary costs that can be imposed.
Faulty Products Litigation
Sometimes, when proper health and safety procedures are not followed in a facility, the products that come out of that facility can be subject to defects, which could then pose hazardous threats to consumers. When these hazards cause injury to others, litigation follows. In such cases, class-action suits can also result, where multiple victims bring together a large suit that divides a much larger settlement.
