His commitment to personal service and tenacious work ethic has allowed him to recover millions of dollars for injury victims, including those hurt by defective products.

Armed with that knowledge, he will fight on your behalf until you get the settlement or verdict you need to put your life back together.

Types of Product Liability Claims

There are many ways in which a consumer product or equipment could potentially injure someone. In most cases, it is the manufacturer's responsibility to ensure the product is safe and free from dangerous flaws. When you have been injured, however, we can help you demonstrate that the product caused your injuries due to a:

  • Design Defect: A design defect affects the entire line of products and often escapes notice earlier thanks to inadequate testing processes. An example of a design defect may include a box fan with a grate-style guard on the front. The grate's openings, however, are large enough to allow a child's hand to fit through and into the blades of the fan.
  • Manufacturing Defect: A manufacturing defect can ruin an otherwise safe design. This type of danger is introduced during the production process and may include counterfeit parts, substandard materials, or poor workmanship and quality control. For example, if the design specifications of a piece of farm machinery required high-quality steel bolts, but to cut costs, cheaper, lower-quality bolts were used, and a bolt fails and injures someone, that person could bring a suit based on the manufacturing defect.
  • Failure to Warn: Some products are inherently dangerous, no matter how well they are designed and manufactured. Cutting tools, fireworks, and cleaning chemicals are just a few examples of products that can cause injury or death if used improperly, despite flawless design. For products such as these, however, the manufacturer or distributor must provide adequate warnings and safety instructions for their use.
