Products Liability

When you use a product, whether that is a car, an electric saw, a piece of industrial equipment, a child's toy or anything else, you naturally assume it is going to be safe. Under the law, product manufacturers have a responsibility to provide products that are safe for their intended use. Sometimes manufacturers fail in that duty, leading to defective products, which cause injury to tens of thousands of people every year.

If you are injured as the result of a faulty product that is not safe for its intended use, you may be entitled to compensation. This can include compensation for lost earnings, medical expenses, physical injury and pain, and mental anguish and suffering.

Under Alabama law, the injured party must prove the defectiveness of the product. We will examine all the facts in your case, arrange for a professional assessment of the product, and we will gather any other necessary evidence, including witness statements and medical reports.

If you have been injured by a faulty product of any kind, you should get advice from an experienced attorney as soon as you can. You should also take steps to preserve the product as vital evidence.

Employing an experienced attorney greatly increases your chances of success. We have many years experience in products liability cases, and will use our expertise to ascertain whether you have a case, and then make it the strongest case possible. There are time limits for a products liability case, so contact us today to find out how we can help you.
