About ConsumerSafety.org

Our Mission

ConsumerSafety.org provides legal connections for individuals suffering the consequences of problematic drugs, medical devices, consumer products, and hazardous conditions.

What We Do

We focus on three primary areas to help bring awareness about problematic drugs, medical devices, and products to consumers.

News: Our legal partners, medical experts, researchers, and writers craft a variety of news articles, legal posts, and resources. We offer details on the latest consumer lawsuit information and helpful legal resources in an easy-to-digest format to help keep individuals informed.

Outreach Efforts: Our team of researchers and writers work with journalists, bloggers, experts in the legal and health communities, and other influencers to spread the word about the latest dangers, promote safety practices, and provide legal resources.

Legal Connections: We connect individuals who have been hurt by products, medical devices, and medications with lawyers who specialize in product liability litigation, giving them an opportunity to seek compensation for their injuries and recover related costs. While ConsumerSafety.org receives sponsorship from several law firms, we offer information and services freely to all visitors of this website. ConsumerSafety.org does not receive compensation from any health, safety, or other service providers.
