Dangerous & Defective Products Attorney
Manufacturers have a responsibility to make safe products and instruct consumers in their proper use. Lawsuits result when dangerous products cause injuries. These lawsuits can result from either unsafe products, products that provide inadequate or improper instruction on their use, or products that are not advertised in a manner consistent with the intended use of the product. Many times a product is modified by a supplier and the end result is a newly defective product.
Dangerous product lawsuits tend to fall into the following categories:
Dangerous toys & products for children
Equipment & tools
Recreational vehicle/ all-terrain vehicles
