Products Liability

Every year, countless thousands of people are injured nationwide as a result of a dangerous or defective product.  The product may be defective in design, defective in their manufacture, or the label may inadequately warn of the product’s dangerous propensities.  There are both Federal and State laws that were enacted to protect consumers from these types of products, and the laws may allow for a consumer injured by a defective or dangerous product to be compensated for their loss.  In the products liability law, every player in the “stream of commerce,” from the manufacturer, to the distributor, to the retailer, can be held strictly liable for the injuries caused by a defective or dangerous product.

 Mr. Kent has extensive experience in pursuing product liability claims against various manufacturers, including farming equipment manufacturers/distributors, firearms manufacturers/distributors, hazardous substance manufacturers/distributors, propane heater manufacturers/distributors, petroleum/gasoline manufacturers and chemical manufacturers/distributors.  If you feel that you have been injured as a result of a defective product, call us for a comprehensive evaluation of your rights.
