Product Liability

Broadly speaking, product liability class action suits seek compensation for people harmed by the design, manufacture or sale of defective products.

Many types of products can be the subject of a product liability claim. Some of the more popular products give rise to cases in which defective medical devices, pharmaceuticals, motor vehicles, foods and beverages, beauty and cosmetics products, construction materials, and many others, cause harm.

Whether the defective devices lead to personal injury, wrongful death, property damage or economic loss, we strive to bring justice to clients harmed by manufacturers.
