Dangerous & Defective Products
Lawyers Experienced in Dangerous and Defective Products
When you choose which products to buy and use, you have the right to assume they are going to operate correctly as they’re designed to. You trust products to have passed safety checks, quality control, and other regulations, as well as rely on a company’s good name. As a consumer, you have every right to assume a product won’t cause injury or harm, especially when used for its intended purpose.
A defective product is one that was designed or manufactured improperly and contains flaws which can harm consumers, their families, and especially young children. Injuries arising from poorly designed or improperly manufactured products can be significant, and filing a claim can also help save additional consumers from harm.
Product liability can cover a broad range of areas, and includes:
- Defective vehicles
- Defective auto parts
- Defective medical devices
- Defective medication
- Defective children’s toys
- Defective safety products
An experienced dangerous and defective products attorney knows that the responsibility for keeping consumers safe starts with designers, but also includes manufacturers, suppliers, and retailers. It’s possible to find each of these parties liable for injury in a dangerous or defective products case, to ensure that you’re compensated for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
Serving Defective Product Injury Victims in Utah, Wyoming, and Idaho
At Peck Hadfield, we have a successful record recovering payments for our clients who have needlessly suffered due to dangerous or defective products, and can help you seek compensation if you have been injured.
Our law firm works with leading safety, engineering, and other experts to establish that consumer injury is due to an improper or dangerous product design in hundreds of cases.
Most notably, our attorneys have enforced a landmark discovery order which revealed that Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. was aware of the multiple design and manufacturing defects that placed their consumers at risk for auto accidents, due to product failure.
The manufacturer had attempted to disguise their knowledge of the improper design as a “trade secret”. Peck Hadfield attorneys successfully argued for an order compelling Cooper Tire to produce millions of critical documents, invalidating their argument that trade secrets were protected from disclosure when their product standards were called into question, and created the precedent of their liability. We were able to successfully recover a settlement for our clients’ injuries relating to the improperly designed and manufactured tires.
Our attorneys are well-versed in the laws that safeguard consumers from the harm posed to them by defective products. Dangerous and defective products can lead to a significant amount of physical, emotional, and monetary stress. If you have been injured by a defective product, our lawyers can help.
