this happens, innocent individuals can suffer serious injury. We believe
those culpable parties should be held responsible for defective products.

What Is Product Liability?
Product liability law governs the design, production, manufacture, and
sales of consumer items and products, ensuring they are safe for consumers
and that proper warning labels and instructions are created and provided.
Products liability law protects consumers from:
- Defective auto parts
- Defective vehicles
- Contaminated food / produce
- Defective industrial products
- Defective medical devices
- Dangerous / defective chidren's toys
- Other defective & dangerous consumer products
Who Would I File a Lawsuit Against if I Was Injured by a Defective Product?
If you or someone you love was injured or killed due to a defective product,
you can file a suit against the manufacturer. However, in some cases,
the seller or distributor can be held liable. In other cases, consumers
can file lawsuits against individuals or specific entities who were responsible
for making the product safer.
What Do I Have to Prove in a Product Liability Case?
While there are different types of product liability cases in general to
establish a product liability claim, you must prove the following three elements:
- The product was reasonably dangerous or was defective for its intended use
- The product defect existed before the product was distributed to the public
and did not undergo proper inspection or quality control processes
- The product defect was the proximate cause of fatality or injury.
Another common type of product liability case stems from a failure on the
part of the manufacturer to provide adequate warnings of potential danger
inherent within a product. Specifically, these types of cases typically
involve the proper manner in which a particular product is to be used.
Aside from this distinction, these cases require the same elements of
proof set forth above.

Is It Difficult to Win a Product Liability Case Against a Large Manufacturer?
Most often, large product manufacturers are backed by extensive resources
to defend them from the claims of injured victims. For this reason, injured
victims or their family members should retain an experienced product liability
lawyer before filing a claim. A seasoned attorney will be able to gather
evidence and develop a strong legal strategy in order to pursue compensation
for your damages.
Can I Still File a Lawsuit Even Though the Manufacturer Provided a Product
Disclaimer or Warning?

if a person suffers injury. If the disclaimer, instructions, or warning
labels were insufficient, you may still be able to hold the manufacturer
