If you or a loved one has been injured because of a defective product, do not expect to get reasonable compensation without an experienced personal injury attorney as your advocate. Product manufacturers know that they cannot simply roll over on product liability claims; otherwise they will open the door to other lawsuits from users of the defective product, not to mention the expense of having to recall the product.
Talk to our office about your case as soon as you can. There is no financial obligation. You pay no fee for our services unless we recover money for you. We fight aggressively to hold manufacturers and distributors of defective products accountable and get money for consumers like you. We handle all types of product liability claims, including:
- Defective automobiles and auto products (defective trailer hitches, defective tires)
- Defective medical products (defective prosthetics, defective instruments)
- Defective construction equipment (defective cranes, defective ladders)
In product liability cases, the victim may be offered a quick settlement by the product manufacturer’s insurance company. Accepting this settlement may seem like a good idea at first, but it frequently falls short of covering all costs caused by the accident or providing you with the money you deserve. In many of these cases, we are going up against self-insured businesses that are even more motivated to go to trial to protect their bottom lines. We are ready to take them on through trial and appeal, if necessary.
We encourage you to take the following steps after an injury caused by a defective product:
- Keep the defective product(s) and all parts – do not throw them away
- Get contact information from any witnesses
- Take photographs of the scene and your injuries
- Get medical attention
Absolutely do not provide a recorded statement to the company that made the product or to their insurance company. If you make statements about your injuries or about who was at fault, they could be used against you. Discuss your case with our office first.
