Products Liability

Adults and children often are injured by design flaws and defects in goods, including cars and other auto industry products, construction materials, appliances, children’s toys, cribs, car seats, drugs and other consumer products. Manufacturers are responsible for designing and manufacturing safe products, and for warning of dangers such products can cause.
