Products liability involves cases where someone is injured as a result of a product that is not safe when it is used in a reasonable manner. Injuries can occur when a product does not have proper safety features or warnings or when it has been poorly designed.
Some examples that we have handled include:
- A riding lawnmower without a proper safety guard in the seat, which resulted in a severed limb;
- A cooked chicken breast sold without any warning or indication of the expiration date, which resulted in severe food poisoning, lead the client to pass out and fall on her face, causing a broken jaw, broken teeth and broken nose;
- An office chair that broke at the bottom welds, causing the chair to pitch forward, resulting in knee injuries.
