Dangerous products are all around us. While there are federal investigative departments that try to keep Americans safe, often those institutions miss or ignore defective or dangerous products in the marketplace. When a defective product has injured you or someone you care about, you have the right to receive compensation for your injury.
Dangerous Drugs & Medical Devices
The Federal Food and Drug Administration, the FDA, recalls dozens of dangerous pharmaceuticals and medical devices every year. Often, due to federal regulatory loopholes, these products hit the market before full and thorough testing has been completed. If you or a loved one has been injured by a dangerous drug or medical device, you need an attorney that has specific experience tackling big pharmaceutical companies with virtually unlimited resources and large legal teams.
Automotive, ATV, and other vehicle defects endanger everyone on the roads, not only the occupants of a defective vehicle, but also those driving along side them. While most vehicle manufacturers will submit to a voluntary recall, some do not. This puts you and your family at direct risk of injury due to the negligence of the vehicle’s manufacturer.
If you would around complicated machinery on an oilfield, in a manufacturing plant, or in any other highly technical locale, your life and limb depend upon the safety of the large machinery around you. The oil boom in Texas has created an industry ripe for injury. The sudden expansion of drilling means that older machinery is being put to work, inspected less often, and therefore more likely to be faulty.
Defective Household or Consumer Products
We rely on the things we buy to work safely; but inadequate design or manufacturing defects often cause consumer products to fail. We live every day of our lives surrounded by consumer products, including riding lawn mowers, microwaves, dishwashers, ovens, space heaters, car seats, and household tools. If you’ve suffered significant property loss or suffered a severe injury because of a defective consumer product, consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney is your best course of action.
