Thankfully, most people can live entire lives without ever having to deal with a breach of fiduciary duty from someone in whom they put their trust and assets. But for those who do have to deal with such scenarios, it can truly be a nightmare.

Imagine spending months or years on a waiting list for a new organ. Finally, you get a match, have the operation and leave the hospital ready to go on with a long and healthy life. But, what if that new organ makes you sick? What if that new organ gives you cancer? This is the last thing you expect when you receive a transplant, but it can happen.In June of 2016, a California woman received a new pancreas and kidney. In December of the same year, surgeons had to remove the organs because the pancreas was cancerous.

Takata, the Japanese manufacturer already going down in history for one of the biggest product recalls in the United States, has set the bar even higher by recalling 3.3 million more airbag inflators. The company expanded the recall to include frontal airbags in certain car models with a production year of 2009, 2010 and 2013. The car manufacturers that are involved in the recall include Honda, Toyota, Audi and more. The automakers are still compiling a list of affected vehicles that they will then file with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

With so many people driving, the last thing you want to have to worry about is if a vehicle is defective. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, or NHTSA, has the ability to enforce safety standards that take dangerous vehicles off the roads. To do that, the department has to know something's wrong.

There are certain safety products that simply need to work. Failure is not an option when a product or device is a last line of defense against a fatal accident or serious injury. When safety products have serious issues, injury, disability and even death can result. The companies who made, sold and distributed these defective products may end up liable for those injuries and deaths in a court of law.

When you spend your hard-earned money on a car, phone or even a sandwich from the deli, you expect quality as well as safety. We trust product manufacturers and sellers to put items on their shelves that won't land us in the hospital. Unfortunately, mistakes happen. Perhaps food became contaminated during transport or the design for one tiny car part was faulty and caused a fire under the hood. Regardless of the cause of the malfunction, someone is accountable for the damages you or a loved one has suffered.

When you buy a product, whether it is a cellphone or a car, you expect it to work. Furthermore, you expect it to be safe. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. From phones catching fire to airbags exploding and dryers catching fire, there are times when products wind up in our homes that pose an unexpected threat to our families. Manufacturers have a duty to notify consumers when they realize they have unleased dangerous products that pose an unreasonable risk to the public. They usually do this through product recalls.
