When you buy a product, you expect it to be safe. Unfortunately, the market is full of dangerous products such as defective medical devices, drugs, automobiles, airplanes and foods. The law allows you to recover for personal injury, pain and suffering, medical bills and lost wages that are caused by unsafe products.
A defective product is one that either has a flawed design and/or was not manufactured properly. The end result is that the consumer is put at serious risk of harm or injury when using the product. There are times when the injuries caused by the product are immediate, while other times they are not realized for many years. Proving negligence in product liability cases can be quite difficult and requires a thorough investigation to gather all the evidence and get to the truth.
HM&M pursues cases against all product liability. Contact us today for assistance with all types of malpractice cases.
