If you have been injured by a defective product, you could be entitled to a monetary settlement or judgment.
A product may be defective if it is designed or manufactured improperly. Flawed engineering designs may result in an unsafe product that causes injury to consumers. Manufacturing defects involve faulty materials or assembly of a product.
In a products liability case, the law may find blame with any or all parties involved in the manufacture of a product. This can include the designer, manufacturer, supplier, and retailer. Only an experienced personal injury attorney can determine the proper course of action to ensure victims get the compensation they deserve.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective product, contact our highly qualified legal professionals for a commitment-free consultation.
