Products Liability

Faulty, broken wire. According to product liability law, consumers have the right to expect the products they use to be safe. They do not expect to be injured due to a defect in the design or manufacture of the product. If there are any dangers to the use of the product, the law also says consumers have a right to expect a warning so they are aware of the risks.

When someone is injured or killed by dangerous products and machines, they and their families deserve to be compensated for their losses. Scott Sumner and Sumner Law can help you hold to account the manufacturers, distributors and suppliers who fail to fulfill their legal obligations to produce safe products.

Some examples of product liability cases include, but are not limited to:

  • Defective consumer products
  • All types of machinery and tools
  • Heavy equipment
  • Recreational equipment such as bicycles
  • Toys and cribs for children
  • Automobile design defects which may involve air bags, brakes, seatbelts and other problems that cause injury
  • Chemicals sold without warnings of the risk
  • Medical devices which are defective
  • Pharmaceuticals, either over-the-counter or prescription

If you were injured due to the use of a defective product, or due to the use of a dangerous product that came without a warning, you need the assistance of an experienced product liability attorney.
