When a consumer buys a product, they rightfully expect it to perform safely and efficiently. Unfortunately, that isn't always the case. Use of defective products can result in tragic consequences.
A defective product is one that was either designed with defects or was manufactured improperly. Flawed design or manufacturing defects may result in unsafe products that cause injury to consumers. There have been countless cases of defectively or dangerously designed consumer products harming and often killing consumers, including children.
In a products liability case, the law may find blame with any or all individuals involved in the manufacture of a product. This can include the designer, manufacturer, supplier and retailer. These individuals may be held liable for any injury their product causes.
For years, The Lanier Law Firm has represented consumers who have been seriously injured by defective products, both at home and in the workplace. Among the kinds of cases we've handled are:
We have achieved substantial recoveries on behalf of many clients. For example:
Our work on behalf of clients has resulted not only in financial recoveries, but has also put pressure on manufacturers to design safer toys, furniture, automobiles, and the like. While no amount of money can truly compensate our clients for a debilitating injury or the loss of a loved one, they, and we, are gratified knowing that future consumers might not be put at the same risk.
