Products Liability

Most manufacturers adhere to certain safety and quality control measures to ensure products leaving their factories are safe to use. However, when negligence or design defects create dangers for consumers, manufacturers can be held liable for the injuries their products cause. At the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd we consult with design engineers, product safety experts, medical professionals, and manufacturing technicians when building cases for our clients. Using case law and our comprehensive knowledge of the law, our personal injury lawyers harness the expertise of others to establish a causal link between a dangerous product, its failure, and the extent of a client’s injuries.

When Products Cause Injuries

Our personal injury lawyers represent injury victims in the following kinds of product liability cases:

  • defective seatbelt
  • electrical cord fire
  • defective appliance
  • malfunctioning airbag
  • electric shock from product
  • severe cuts from sharp objects
  • burns or disfigurement due to explosion
  • defective power tools, lawn mowers, ladders
  • toxic fumes from household cleaners or lawn products

Understanding how to Build an Effective Case

To avoid liability, manufacturers often claim their product was improperly used, damaged by the consumer, or has no demonstrable link to a person’s medical condition. At the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd, our personal injury lawyers work with engineers, designers, and medical experts in countering manufacturer claims in establishing the following:

  1. The defective nature of a product
  2. How its failure or defect resulted in our client’s injuries, and
  3. The causal link between the injuries suffered and the defective product in question

Our use of experts, computer animation, and computer simulations provides scientifically informed, detailed presentations of fact that places the burden of proof on manufacturers, leaving them with little room in which to maneuver.

Act Sooner than Later – Why it can Make a Difference

If you have been injured due to a defective or dangerous product, the sooner you contact an attorney and begin the process of building your case, the better. Waiting months after your injuries have healed or you have misplaced or thrown away the product that caused your injuries will undoubtedly adversely affect your case.
