Choose an Experienced Product Liability Attorney
Manufacturers, vendors, installers and marketers can all be held accountable when consumer products injury consumers. In some cases, product recalls are an indication that a manufacturer knew there was a defect. Other defective products may not have been recalled. However, investigation and testing may confirm the hazards inherent in a product that played a part in an accidental injury.
Examples of potential product liability claims include:
- Industrial accidents caused by defective tools or equipment
- Automobile accidents caused by or made worse by defective car components such as brakes, tires, seat belts, air bags or transmissions
- Aviation accidents caused by airplane manufacturing design defects or manufacturing defects
- Injuries caused by defective drugs and medical devices
A product liability case may stem from a manufacturing defect or a design defect. Proving a design defect means demonstrating that a product was not engineering to recommended specifications. Bowles & Verna LLP welcomes the opportunity to evaluate your case. We can tell you whether your potential product liability case is likely to bring a settlement or verdict large enough to cover investigation costs and legal fees, with money left over to compensate you for your injuries.
Product liability cases are notoriously expensive to investigate and often difficult to prove to a jury's satisfaction. For this reason, many personal injury law firms shy away from product liability cases. At Bowles & Verna LLP, we apply our vast experience to the task of screening cases. We accept product liability cases only when losses are significant and we believe a settlement or verdict will amply cover costs of investigation, legal fees and compensation for injuries and losses, including pain and suffering.
