Manufacturers have an absolute duty to produce safe products. If you have been harmed by a defective product, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Some examples of defective products include automobiles, pharmaceuticals, asbestos, children’s toys, and household appliances. Contact us if you have been injured by a defective product.
Products that we use or consume everyday without giving a second thought to, can sometimes wind up hurting us. Dangerous products are placed into the stream of commerce by manufacturers, distributors, and retailers putting consumers at risk for injury and death. We represent those consumers who become victims of dangerous or defective products. Just about any item we purchase, use or consume can present danger if proper standards in production, design or distribution are not adhered to.
We have all heard by now that that the manufacturers of certain pharmaceuticals, medical devices and vehicles have sometimes put profits over safety. Defective and dangerous products are often the result of careless or unethical business practices. Many times we do not learn about products being recalled or being unreasonably dangerous until it is too late. We help bring these issues to the public eye. Often times the manufacturers and companies that sell the products know they are dangerous, but take the calculated risk not to alert the public to avoid bad publicity or lost profits. Our lawyers will bring claims for money damages against corporations who manufacture and sell defective products. Such lawsuits are very important to keep big business honest and to enforce and maintain safety standards.
Our lawyers have the experience, knowledge, and skill to pursue cases against manufacturers and those companies in the chain of distribution. Defective products from food items to hip replacement implants can be defective. In many circumstances a manufacturer can be held strictly liable for the defective products if the defect can be proved and shown to have been the cause of the damage or injury. A plaintiff need not necessarily have to prove negligence. Other claims may include failure to warn, off label uses for medications and medical devices, breaches of implied warranties and even punitive damages. The Johns Law Firm is currently accepting products liability cases.
