We Defend Families Who Have Lost a Loved One Due To a Defective Product.

Consumer products wrongful death lawsuits have involved all sorts of dangerous products, including medications (over-the-counter and prescription), baby products, children’s toys, cars, medical devices, food and consumables, electrical equipment, even defective safety products. It is a manufacturer’s responsibility to test their product for safety before they are on the market. The government has safety measures and regulations in place to ensure that dangerous products never make it to store shelves. However, product manufacturers and marketers will always look for ways to cut corners and save money. Often times to cut costs manufactures may remove important safety features or not spend as much time on the research and development needed to ensure products are safe.

Establishing Product Liability in a Wrongful Death Case

First, it needs to be clear that the product was being used for its intended use at the time of the accident. If a product was being used properly and malfunctioned to cause serious injury to a person, product liability should be pursued. Additionally, conditions must be established that the product should not have been on sale in the first place. If something about the product made it unsuitable for sale under U.S. regulations and codes you will have a case for product liability.
