People come in contact with products constantly, whether it’s a child’s toy, safety equipment or appliances; the number of products in the world is unsurpassable.

Unfortunately, the number of defective products continues to grow exponentially.

The physical, mental and financial effects on the responsible party as well as the injured party can be devastating. The victim injured by a defective product is entitled to reimbursement for pain and suffering, medical costs, treatments, medicines, and therapies that occur as a result of the product-related injury. Unfortunately, the victim will also be dealing with insurance and financial issues that arose because of the injury. Neglecting to obtain the proper representation can result in a disastrous case.
