We can help those harmed by a defective product

Suffering an injury from the use of a product that you believed to be safe and harmless is often quite shocking. While many of us look for danger and risks in our surroundings in an effort to be safe, the majority of us do not expect the risks to come from our day-to-day use of common products. Unfortunately, consumer injury due to a defective product is not uncommon. Some of the most common dangerous and defective products that cause consumer injury include prescription drugs or medical products, motor vehicles, and household appliances. However, there are many other types of products that pose dangers, as well, including baby products and toys.

When people suffer an injuries from a product, they may not understand the details--legally speaking--of what occurred. They may only know that they have suffered harm. The first thing that a victim should know is that consumers who suffer injury or illness from their use of a product that was expected to be safe have legal recourse in the form of a products liability lawsuit. This kind of lawsuit aims to hold the product's designers or manufacturers liable for creating a dangerously defective product.

For those who are interested in pursuing a products liability lawsuit, one of the first steps is understanding which category of defective product cases it belongs to. There are three main types of cases relating to defective and dangerous products: design defects, manufacturing defects, and failure to warn.

Our firm is experienced in handling products liability cases, and we have the knowledge necessary to educate clients on which type of case they have. We also have the resources necessary to investigate the case fully and collect the evidence that a court will require to prove both liability and harm.
