Holding The Company Responsible
Companies involved in designing, manufacturing and distributing products and their insurers have a responsibility to their consumers, and legal protections and regulations are in place to help protect consumers from defects that could cause them serious injury. Victims have the legal right to hold a company liable for a defective product, but it is a difficult process unless they are represented by experienced product liability attorneys like those at Rosenthal & Kreeger, LLP.
For more than 25 years, our firm has been protecting our clients' legal rights to seek compensation for serious injury due to defective products, successfully achieving compensation through both settlements and verdicts. Our firm always prepares for trial, and our representation of your case is extremely thorough — including investigation, expert testimony and medical support.
Three Major Classifications Of Defective Products
There are three primary classifications of defective products:
- Design: From the start, the product was defective, as its design was faulty.
- Manufacture: During the manufacturing process, materials were faulty or the process was inadequate, producing a defective product.
- Failure to warn of a defective product: When the manufacturer knew or should have known that the product was either poorly designed or manufactured (or both) and did not issue consumer warnings or provide appropriate warning labels on the product, then the defective product falls under the category of failure to warn.
Some of product liability cases our lawyers have successfully fought include auto companies for their defective vehicles, medical device companies for their defective devices and pharmaceutical companies for their dangerous drugs.
