Product Liability

When you buy something you assume it is safe and has been designed and manufactured to be safe when put to use. Unfortunately, dangerous and defective products injure and kill thousands of people every year. Many dangerous products are made by large corporations who put their profits over the safety of their customers. Oftentimes these products could be made safer for just a few cents or dollars more, but instead, a company will choose to save a few pennies per product to add millions to its bottom line. Fortunately, there are laws that protect consumers when tragedy does strike; however, enforcement of these laws is often complex. That is why you need attorneys who bring experience in handling products liability cases on your side.

The bottom line is, it is the responsibility of the manufacturer of the product, as well as the retailer to ensure the items they sell are reliable and safe for a consumer to use. This is a responsibility that extends to both domestic and foreign manufacturers.

Manufacturers also have the responsibility to protect consumers from any possible harm that they may cause while being used. This means that the manufacturer is responsible for testing and making any alterations to the product, prior to sending it to the marketplace to be sold.

A product liability claim against a manufacturer will be successful when there is proof that a defective and unreasonably dangerous product has caused the harm or that a user was harmed because the product was unsafe for use in its intended manner.

Some examples of when a product is not considered safe include:

  • If a manufacturing defect is present.
  • If inadequate instructions or warnings do not allow for safe use of the product.
  • If the design of a product is unsafe or defective.

If you are injured by a product or part of a product, you should call our team at Sullivan Law so we can evaluate the situation to determine if you have a basis to file a product liability lawsuit.

Some examples of products liability cases include:

  • Car or Truck Defects
  • Boat Explosions
  • Household Items
  • Prescription Drugs
  • Medical Devices
  • Defective Helmets

Our attorneys have built a national reputation handling these types of case. If you have been injured by a potentially defective product you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer and/or the company who sold the product.

In many cases, the manufacturers of these products have significant financial resources they will use to protect themselves and their interests. They will try to force your hand by challenging you to costly legal battles or coerce you into settling for an amount that is less than what you deserve.

Sullivan Law offers another option. We have the resources and experience to take on big business. We will fight for you and make sure you receive the compensation you deserve.
