Insurance Answer

Good risk management with a focus on quality control should help prevent most claims. When a situation like this does occur then the cost of the product recall can be addressed through an insurance policy. If there is deemed to be a higher risk of injury then you often will see a higher than usual deductible for claims resulting from product injury.

Take control of your insurance. Talk to your broker or agent.
