Defective Product Attorney
Our defective products attorneys will fight for fair compensation.
Injuries caused by defective products often come as a surprise. But sometimes products are defective, and such defects can lead to serious injuries and all that comes with them—including medical bills, lost work, and possibly ongoing health issues that make it impossible to lead the life you once did.
When you or someone you care for is injured by a defective product, you may be able to take legal action and get compensation. There are a number of different parties that might be responsible, including manufacturers, distributors, retailers and more. The most effective way to pursue a lawsuit against these parties is to hire an experienced personal injury attorney. That’s where we come in. Our firm is here to help you determine if you have a case. If you do, you can depend on us to pursue it with all the resources at our disposal. Contact us now to learn more.
Defective product cases can be complex because there are often multiple parties that must be investigated to prove negligence. The product had one or more designers, manufacturers, distributors, etc. While it may only be one of these parties that is responsible for the defect, often a defective product case will pursue multiple parties.
The process of filing a defective product lawsuit can vary depending on the state, but there are certain factors that apply in all such cases. If you think that your injuries were caused by any of the following, please contact our firm.
Was there defect in the manufacturing process? Often defective products are the result of defect in manufacturing. Once the product leaves the facility for sale, it becomes a danger. Manufacturers can often be held accountable.
Was there defect in the design? The problem with a defective product may exist in the design. Sometimes the design of a product is dangerous from the outset. Design defects can be the basis of a defective product lawsuit.
Was there a failure to warn about potential hazards? Sometimes products are inherently dangerous if used incorrectly, such as power tools. If we can prove that a warning should have been in place but was not, it may be possible to pursue legal action.
Was the injury result of negligence? Often a factor in these cases is negligence. Did the manufacturer or other party have an obligation to the public to deliver a safe product? Could they have acted differently so that the injury did not occur?
Does strict liability apply? The concept of strict liability can be useful for a product liability case, because if strict liability applies, then it is only necessary to prove that a defect was present and an injury was caused by it to take legal action.
It is possible for any product to be defective, which means there are a wide variety of potential product liability cases. Some of the most common suits we handle include:
There are numerous regulations surrounding the manufacture of automobiles and other vehicles specifically because they can be so dangerous when defective. A defective vehicle can quickly put you in serious danger. Our firm has experience with defective seat belts, defective airbags and other defective vehicle cases. Please contact us if you were hurt in an accident caused by a defective vehicle.
Pharmaceuticals are carefully regulated to ensure they are safe to use. Errors are still made, however. Defective drugs can lead to a range of injuries, including stroke, heart failure, damage to internal organs, brain damage and sometimes death. In certain circumstances, a class action lawsuit will be filed by multiple parties against those responsible for the defective drugs.
Medical devices are another product that goes through a strict screening process before being sold to consumers. The need for caution is obvious—users of medical devices are vulnerable and need to know that their devices are safe. Unfortunately, sometimes medical devices are not made with the care and attention they should be. The injuries that result can be severe, and sometimes deadly.
Parents put a lot of trust in the products they buy for their children. There is an expectation that these products will be safe to use. When it turns out that mistakes were made and the children’s product is causing injuries, it can be extremely upsetting for victims and their families. A successful lawsuit for a defective children’s product serves an important role in holding those responsible accountable.
A successful product liability suit must be carefully constructed. Laws vary by region and there are often multiple parties that must be investigated to get to the bottom of what happened. To ensure fair compensation, the case must be strong and address every mistake that was made from design to sale. Fortunately, our legal team is well-equipped to handle every facet of this process.
