Personal Injury Law: Product Liability

Products liability is an area of law that involves the litigation of personal injury, wrongful death and property damage claims on behalf of individuals resulting from product design defects, manufacturing defects, or lack of adequate safety warnings. If a defective and/or unsafe product injures you, you may be entitled to compensation from the company that made the product, the store that sold you the product, or both. Our firm represents injured consumers in matters against both manufacturers and sellers of defective and/or unsafe products and we have successfully prosecuted a wide variety of serious product liability cases on both the state and federal levels.

Every time you strap your child into her car seat or take a prescribed medication, you should have peace of mind knowing that the product is safe and will perform its intended purpose. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.  Each year, thousands of people in the United States are injured from dangerous or defective products.  If you or your property has been harmed as a result of a poorly designed or manufactured product, you may be eligible to receive compensation.

Many people fail to realize that there are federal and local laws which protect consumers against dangerous products and hold manufacturers liable for injuries caused by such goods. These regulations are generally known as product liability law. If you have been injured by a defective product, it is essential that you contact a knowledgeable lawyer who can help you determine your rights and represent you against large manufacturing companies. Contact our skilled defective product attorneys if you or a loved one has been injured by:

  • Defective automobile products including airbags, seatbelts, tires, child car seats
  • Pharmaceutical products
  • Medical devices
  • Children’s toys
  • Household appliances
  • Sporting goods including firearms, exercise equipment, helmets

These injuries may be the result of a design defect, manufacturing error or inadequate labeling which does not include sufficient safety instructions or warnings.

Product liability law places the burden of proof on the injured party, meaning that he or she must present evidence showing a direct link between physical injuries and product defect. This causal relationship may be difficult to prove without an experienced advocate on your side.

Our law firm works closely with you every step of the way and will advise you on the best course of action to help you obtain the compensation you deserve. We also collaborate with experienced engineers and design experts who can provide invaluable insight for your case and deliver expert testimony in a court of law. When necessary, these resources afford us the ability to create a replica of the defective product to further strengthen your case.

You paid for the product, you should not be forced to pay for the harm it caused you or a loved one. If you’ve been injured as the result of a defective or dangerous product, call us today for a free consultation.
