Product Liability Attorneys

We Protect Your Rights

Product liability involves holding a manufacturer responsible for the quality of their products. All too often, a manufacturer will put money ahead of safety, putting consumers at risk for injury or even worse, death.

  • A design defect ( the product is manufactured was intended but was inherently unsafe)
  • A manufacturing defect (the design of the product was adequate, but the product was not made correctly)
  • A failure to warn or instruct ( the instructions for and the warnings about the use of the product were inadequate)

In practical terms this means that the manufacturer has a duty to design out dangers inherent in the product. If the dangers cannot be designed out, the manufacturer has to guard against such hazards. If the danger cannot be designed out or guarded against, the manufacturer must warn and instruct users of the dangers inherent in the product.
