Wiring Defects cause product failures that result in injuries and deaths and they are frequently overlooked as the main or a contributing source of malfunctions, product failures, fires, and other perils.
Wiring Defects Affect: Construction Equipment, Wiring Harnesses in Automobiles, and Toys
Some of the areas that wiring defects can affect include:
- Construction Equipment
- Entertainment Devices
- Hand Tools
- Industrial Equipment
- Manufacturing Equipment
- Residential & Commercial Electrical Systems
- Small Machinery
- Smoke Detectors
- Wiring Harnesses that Control Automobiles
Nearly half of the products that have caused injuries to children due to wiring defects have been toys that were assembled overseas. Within one ten year period, 16 million children’s products were identified that posed a risk of fire, burns, or electrical shocks according to the Consumer Products Safety Commission.
Millions of vehicles have been recalled as a result of defective wiring. Unfortunately, many people were injured and killed before the recalls were issued by the manufacturers and there are still many automobiles in use today that are operating with undiagnosed wiring defects and whose owners have not been alerted to the dangers by manufacturers. With current automobile registration requirements and tracking systems in place, there is no valid reason for owners and operators of vehicles with recognized dangerous components to not be notified in order to have the defect repaired by the liable manufacturers.
Wiring Defect Effects: Burns, Automobile Accidents, Fires, Explosions, and Death
