Our Communications Down

Due to the storms from Hurricane Zeta, our offices in downtown Rome have been without power, phone and Internet service since early Thursday morning. We hope to have power restored soon but apologize for any inconvenience in trying to reach our attorneys and legal staff.

Products Liability Litigation

Products Liability Litigation

Products liability law is premised on the idea that companies who manufacture, sell, and distribute faulty products should be held accountable when someone gets hurt because of their negligence. If you have been injured by a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation from the negligent party.

Products liability law deals with three different types of unsafe products:

  • design defects;
  • manufacturing defects; and
  • warning defects.

It can apply to tools, machinery, toys, contaminated food, flammable clothing or textiles, medical devices, and pharmaceuticals, among other things. Further, products liability can be a strict liability offense, meaning that even if the defendants were not necessarily negligent, the injured person may still be entitled to compensation.
