Product Liability

Defective and unsafe products harm people every day. Product liability lawsuits may involve: 

  • Fire and burns caused by defective devices, appliances, and smoke detectors 
  • Drugs and medical devices 
  • Asbestos and toxic substances 
  • Brain injuries 
  • Pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers 

The companies that design, make, or sell a dangerous product may be legally liable for injuries suffered by an unsuspecting consumer. When that happens, the injured person is entitled to compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages. 

We’re Here to Help You 

Drug, Biotech and Insurance companies want to save money. They are not on your side. Contact us immediately. 

Our focus is to obtain for you justice and compensation for injuries and other losses by holding the responsible parties―and their insurers―accountable. Insurers (and the companies they represent) work to minimize payouts and avoid lawsuits. They do not care about your best interests. Contact us to find out whether you have grounds for a lawsuit before you speak to an insurer. 

We immediately evaluate your case so you know the status. 

Because we have extensive experience handling product liability cases and understand the medical, technical, and legal issues, we can review your case quickly and effectively. If your case is right for us, we’ll proceed with a full investigation and legal analysis, and determine the likelihood of a favorable settlement or need to file a lawsuit. We will always explain every step and development and counsel you on all possible outcomes so you can make informed decisions. 

Because a monetary award will significantly impact your life, we put our negotiation and trial skills and experience to work. 

We’re master negotiators, so you can rely on us to negotiate the best possible settlement for you. If the parties can’t agree on money, we’re prepared to file a lawsuit and aggressively try your case in the courtroom. And we have a proven track record of securing winning verdicts and other favorable resolutions in product liability cases. 

Our personal bond is as important as our legal representation. 

Defective products can cause catastrophic injuries and death. We understand the loss and anguish that the victim and family experience. The medical issues and choices can be daunting. Paying for medical and rehabilitation costs, along with living expenses, can overwhelm the family when their breadwinner can no longer work. You are not just given one person to work with―you have an entire team of lawyers, paralegals, and personal injury secretaries.  As a team, we coordinate with one another about your case and keep in constant contact with you and your family. Our team helps clients in these emotionally tough times by being accessible, supportive, and genuine. Our sensitivity and compassion make us better lawyers, too. 

If a new legal matter arises during your case, we can help. 

The firm’s product liability practice is just one of many HRMM&L law practices. Because HRMM&L is a full-service law firm with substantial resources, we’re able to advise you on other legal problems that may arise during your case. And if the legal problem is one our firm doesn’t handle, we’ll refer you to another lawyer and firm whom we know and trust. 

Other legal problems you may encounter during your product liability case: 

  • Wrongful death and catastrophic injury 
  • Construction accidents 
  • Motor vehicle accidents 
  • Civil rights abuse and injury 
  • Employer discrimination and harassment 
  • Slip & fall and dangerous property conditions 
  • Medical malpractice
