Many serious injuries and tragic fatalities are caused by industrial equipment and a variety of other products that are defective in design or lack essential safety features.
Product liability is the area of law in which manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers, and others who make products available to the public are held responsible for the injuries those products cause. Although the word “product” has broad connotations, product liability as an area of law is traditionally limited to products in the form of tangible personal property.
Knowledge of product liability law is essential to proving responsibility and obtaining maximum compensation after a work accident, automobile accident or other injury-causing event. We have successfully represented victims injured by a variety of different products, ranging from defective commercial equipment such as an asphalt roller that was designed without a “dead-man” switch to defective design bulk seed containers, food grinders, electric blankets, and defective tires.
