Product Liability Attorneys
Thousands of people in the United States are injured every year due to defective and dangerous products. This can result in severe physical injury, emotional suffering, long-term illness, disability, nerve damage, paralysis, brain damage, and wrongful death. When the injury or illness was caused by the negligence or action of another, then you may be eligible for a product liability claim. The laws surrounding this case type are complicated. This is why it’s so important to seek the consultation of experienced product liability attorneys.

Defective products that cause injury might include:
- Defective brake pads
- Medicine containing the wrong ingredients
- Faulty playground equipment
- Ineffective parts used in machinery
- Automobiles with a design flaw
- Mislabeled product information
- Product labels missing a warning
There are 3 Types of Product Liability Claims:
This occurs when there is an error in the manufacturing process at the factory. The product is therefore different than others currently available on the market. Examples include: car missing its brake pads, tainted medicine, and swing sets with damaged chains.
When the product design is defective it means that there is a flaw in the entire line of products. Examples include: cars that are unable to safely handle certain maneuvers, smart phones that explode, and sunglasses that are missing UV protection coating.
Failure to Provide Adequate Warnings or Instructions
This type of product liability takes place when adequate safety instructions or warnings are not provided to the user. Examples include: medicine missing information about side effects, and appliances that require special instructions.
In each case, it must be proven that your injury was directly caused by one or more of the following:
- Product manufacturer
- Manufacturer of component parts
- Party that assembles or installs the product
- Retail store that sold the product
