product liability

your attorneys at the burkhalter law firm have the

trial skills to produce successful results

It is an unfortunate truth that sometimes the products we use such as: industrial machinery, ladders, toys, cribs, kitchen appliances, medical devices, motor vehicles, lawn mowers, etc., can cause serious personal injuries or death. Sometimes products don't work as they are intended to work, and as a result, injuries occur, i.e., air bags failing to deploy. If the product is defective or unreasonably dangerous, legal recourse may be possible. The Burkhalter Law Firm personal injury lawyers will evaluate your case, and if we accept your case, we will fight to protect your rights to insure you and/or your family members receive just compensation.

Product liability law involves products that are defective or unreasonably dangerous that cause injury or death. The manufacturer and those companies involved in the sale and distribution of the product can be held accountable. On these types of cases, it is often important to seek competent representation immediately after an injury or death so appropriate steps are taken to preserve relevant evidence and so the product can be examined by appropriate experts.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured by a product, please consider consulting our law firm today so we can evaluate your case. Our personal injury attorneys may be able to help you, and if we accept your case, we will protect your rights. We only get paid if you obtain a recovery.
Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers

we care for you

You will have to present the defective or dangerous product for examination, so it is extremely important to preserve the product as best as possible. Do not modify or alter it in any manner. Do not release the product to the manufacturer unless your attorney first approves of this. As to the product, note the name of the manufacturer, model and serial number. Keep any instructions. Keep any receipts showing when and where the product was purchased. Make a record of exactly when the incident occurred and under what circumstances, and obtain the names, phone numbers, and addresses of any witnesses. You need to preserve any and all other evidence as well, i.e., take photographs of any physical damage caused by the product and also take pictures showing your personal injuries.

In cases of death or serious personal injury, you should contact an experienced products liability attorney immediately. On most cases, experts will need to be retained so they can examine the product in question in order to determine whether the product is defective or unreasonably dangerous.  

If you're injured by a product at work, your claim may need to be coordinated with your corresponding worker's compensation claim. If so, it's a good idea to retain the services of the same attorney, allowing him or her to represent you in both cases.
