Liability of Unsafe Products

Liability for Unsafe and Defective Products

We often take for granted the safety of the appliances, tools and other manufactured products that we use at work, around the house, and elsewhere. Unfortunately, these items are not always safe. When they are not safe and cause injury or death, the companies designing, producing, distributing and selling these products may be held liable.

Our attorneys represent consumers and workers who are severely injured by dangerous products. The attorneys’ cases have involved defective products such as:

  • Automobiles, other motor vehicles, and components, such as tires, air bags and seat belts
  • Construction tools and materials
  • Home appliances
  • Industrial machinery and equipment
  • Toys
  • Car seats
  • Cribs
  • Guns
  • Swimming pools and other recreational items

What to Do After Being Injured by an Unsafe Product

We urge people who have been injured, or whose loved one died, to preserve the product, its wrappings or container and any manuals or instructions associated with it. They should also preserve the receipt or other proof of purchase. Having these items is critical to proving defects in a product and who is at fault.

Consulting Experts to Build Strong Cases

Our attorneys consult with nationally-recognized experts in engineering, design, specialists knowledgeable about similar product cases, and medicine to develop strong cases. To maximize the monetary recovery for our clients, the costs and damages associated with a defective product accident, we work with life-care planners and vocational specialists if the injury was catastrophic and prevents future employment. In short, we conduct all the research necessary to identify the defect and build a strong case.
