Every year, defective products claim the lives of innocent individuals.  Harmful products are the cause of many serious and catastrophic injuries.  The most tragic aspect of these life-altering injuries is that they could have been prevented.

Some products are defectively designed which means that they can injure anyone that uses it regardless of the way it was manufactured.  If the flaw lies with the way the product was manufactured, sometimes the manufacturer may be held responsible.  Sadly, defective design in products could have been avoided if the product had been thoroughly tested. It may not have been allowed on the market had the flaw been identified before the product went to market.  There are many different types of injuries that can be sustained from accidents involving defective products.

Insurance companies can be extremely difficult to deal with and often take action to attempt to lower your claim.  The insurance company may try to elicit statements from you that can be used to lower your claim.  A serious injury can jeopardize your future and having an attorney deal with the insurance company can markedly affect your chances of receiving the compensation you are due.

Manufacturers and distributers should be held responsible for their negligent or wrongful conduct. We assist in the following types of product liability claims and legal matters, including but not limited to dangerous products, product recalls, construction products, tractors, defective automobiles, defective off-road vehicles, dangerous infant products,  and wrongful death claims.

We assist in cases of breach of warranty, strict products liability, design defects, marketing defects, hidden defects, fatal defects, manufacturing defects, failure to warn, medical devices, road design defects, food poisoning, asbestos claims, defective machinery, crib recalls, defective airbags, defective tires, engine defects, seat belt failure, industrial equipment, and farm machinery injury accidents.
