Understanding Product Liability
You may not realize that manufacturers of products, their distributors and the retailer have a legal obligation to assure the safety of their products to protect the consumer from injury or death. When they fail to meet this obligation, those same entities may be held liable for any personal injuries and damages caused to consumers. Defective products do make their way to the shelves of stores and into the hands of the consumer who unwittingly use them and suffer injury or death as a result.
In some tragic cases it has later been proven that manufacturers know of hazards and sell the product anyway without notifying the customer that a danger exists in the hopes of making more sales. A profit-minded corporation might take that risk. A mere consumer cannot hope to prevail over a large corporation and its army of litigators when it comes to a product liability suit. If you have been injured or if a loved one has been injured or killed by a defective product, a skilled attorney from our team can help you face down the corporate entities responsible and get you the justice and damages you rightfully deserve.
The attorneys at Mulvey Law Offices understand the severe injuries that can result from defective products, such as broken bones, burns, and tragic
injuries to children. Children's toys can be quite hazardous and expose our most vulnerable population to life-threatening situations. Other products designed for children and child care are also known to cause injuries - car seats, strollers, cribs, infant formula and others have all been named in product liability suits. Attorney Bill Mulvey, Attorney Lesley Cornell and Attorney Patrick Mulvey can handle claims that involve mass recalls as well as claims in stand-alone lawsuits against negligent companies.
