Injured By A Defective Product?
Product manufacturers are obligated to produce and sell goods that will be safe for consumers. When they fail to fulfill this obligation and a product causes harm, they need to be held accountable. The victim needs to be compensated. At the Roanoke office of John Tinney, we have the strength to take on big businesses and get fair compensation for victims injured by defective products.
What Does Defective Mean?
Claims against product manufacturers are referred to as product liability claims. To be successful in this type of personal injury claim, we need to prove that the product was defective or dangerous. Perhaps there was a flaw in the way the product was designed, causing it to be harmful to consumers. Perhaps the design was safe, but the materials used in manufacturing the product were flawed. Perhaps the product was designed and manufactured correctly, but the manufacturer failed to include warnings to consumers of the potential dangers of the product. With more than 40 years of experience, we are well-versed in building cases that clearly demonstrate how a product was defective or dangerous.
Working With Leading Experts
We handle cases involving:
- Defective drugs and medical devices
- Defective tools and work equipment
- Defective automobiles and auto parts
- Defective household goods
Due to the complex nature of many of these products, it is necessary to bring in engineers and other experts to determine what went wrong and why the product caused harm. Our longevity means we have access to leading experts who can strengthen your case. We work with them to get information and facts, and we build cases designed to get positive results, regardless of how large and powerful our opponent may be.
