Defective Product Injuries

Every year, many painful and life-changing injuries happen as a result of a defective product. The product may have been recalled, with or without your knowledge, causing you to be left with a damaged or dangerous accident waiting to happen. You may be one of the first to discover a hazardous flaw that leads to a recall later, due to a product that has previously unnoted defects. However your defective product injury happened, we are here to help you get the money that you deserve for your pain and suffering.

These days, doctor’s bills can be astronomical, and you should never have to pay for these bills when you are hurt due to someone else’s carelessness, negligence, or oversight. It is essential that you have someone who is ready, willing, and able to stand up for you, and we have the experience to help. Our team of dedicated professionals has extensive experience with both Alabama and Georgia state law regarding defective products, and we can help you build and develop your case.

Things You Should Know First

Keep in mind that not every case qualifies for those hundreds of thousands of dollars—or millions—that we see on television shows and movies. As a matter of fact, some cases never go to court at all, depending on the circumstances and particulars of the case. We work hard to keep you out of the courtroom, settling as often as possible through plea bargain and plea agreements. You have enough stress to deal with over your injury; we want the process to be as easy for you as possible! During your initial consultation, we will go over your case with you and help you set a realistic goal for what you can hope to receive at the outcome.

Some cases are restricted by a strict statute of limitations, and once this has expired, the case may no longer be tried. You have a specific amount of time to file a defective product injury claim and after it runs out you may no longer sue the manufacturer for injuries related to a defective product or join any class action suit that is in the process of doing the same. 

A Complicated Process

There is much that needs to be done to file this type of lawsuit, so we take the hard part and make the phone calls, interview witnesses, check into recalls and similar notices, deal with the defective product’s manufacturer, and so on. We will keep you updated on what is going on, and let you know what paperwork we need, from medical records to other documents, when it is needed. Let our nearly two decades of experience in practicing law in Alabama and Georgia work for you!
