Defective Products, Recalls, and Class Actions
Every day, consumer products sold in Alabama and across the U.S. are found to be unsafe. Almost any items that you use or consume, from children’s toys, to prescription drugs and medical devices, to tires on your car, could potentially cause injury or death.
Defective product law makes companies responsible for injuries and death caused by dangerous or defective products that they produce or sell to the public. However, manufacturers will often challenge their responsibility for the harm they caused out of fear they may have to recall the product or face additional lawsuits from people who suffered similar injuries. Defective product litigation is often very complex, and it is important for you to have a law firm on your side with extensive experience in this area. The lawyers at Conchin, Cloud & Cole have been taking on corporations and seeking compensation for victims of dangerous products for decades.
In any products liability case, our goal is two-fold. First, we make sure that manufacturers are held responsible for the injuries they cause you or the death of a loved one. We will seek compensation for your medical treatment and bills, lost wages, and the emotional toll that any serious personal injury causes you and your loved ones. Compensating you for the damages you have suffered is always our number one priority.
Second, our goal is to show any defective product could have, and should have, been made safer. Making manufacturers responsible for the harm they caused you has an important result for others – it ensures that manufacturers will develop safer designs and products and recall their defective products that are on the market. This ensures that the tragedy you and your loved ones have suffered does not happen to anyone else. Your story can result in a safer world for all of us.
We have built a strong reputation and track record of success in handling defective product cases involving:
- Car, truck, and vehicle crashworthiness and safety defects
- Tire blowouts
- Prescription drugs
- Medical devices, surgery tools, and medical implants
- Workplace and industrial machinery
Product liability actions directly result in safer products and improved consumer warnings. They can also result in recalls.
When manufacturers, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) discover a hazardous product, a recall action is initiated to remove that item from the market. These products are withdrawn from the market through product recalls.
However, these recalls usually occur only after many people have been injured or killed by a defective product. Those who have been injured or lost loved ones due to injuries caused by recalled products have legal rights, and the personal injury lawyers at Conchin, Cloud & Cole keep current on important product recalls that could potentially cause harm to you and your family.
If you have been injured or lost a loved one due to a defective product, the attorneys at Conchin, Cloud & Cole are here to help you and your family and ensure no one else experiences a similar tragedy. Please contact us today to learn about your rights and remedies.
