Practice Area: Product Liability
Products on the shelves of grocery stores, automobiles in showrooms, and medications at your local pharmacy have undergone rigorous testing and are completely safe for use, right? Unfortunately, this is not always the case. As dedicated product liability lawyers, we have seen far too many devastating injuries occur as a result of unsafe products. Our defective product investigators work hard to hold negligent companies accountable when consumers suffer at their hands.
Laws Governing Product Safety
Product liability laws are in place to protect consumers from harm. In most cases, state and federal laws are used to show how a product manufacturer exhibited negligence or outright illegal practices. If you or a member of your family has suffered serious injury after using a defective product, you can trust that our highly skilled product liability attorneys will do everything possible to help you recover through fair compensation. Depending on the details of your injury, a product creator, manufacturer, distributor, or retailer may be held financially liable for the resulting physical and emotional harm.
