Defective product lawyers in Madison

When you use a product, you assume that it will be safe for you and your family. Unfortunately, some products don't meet these expectations. In a worst-case scenario, these products can cause injury or even death.

By law, businesses that sell or manufacture products can be held responsible for injuries caused by that product in one of two circumstances:

  1. Products are required to be designed and built in a way that they are not "unreasonably dangerous." When a product does not meet this standard, it is considered defective and the manufacturer is liable for any resulting injuries.
  2. Manufacturers are also required to provide clear warnings about the potential dangers of a product, as well as adequate instructions on how to use it correctly and safely. Products missing these instructions and warnings are also considered defective, and the manufacturer is liable for any injuries that could have been prevented.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a product that meets one of these definitions, you may be entitled to:

  • Past and future medical bills for treatment of your injuries
  • Out of pocket expenses related to the injury including prescriptions, co-pays, deductibles, over-the-counter medications like Advil® or Tylenol®, braces, hot or cold packs, etc.
  • Your lost wages (both past lost wages and wages you will lose in the future because of disabilities or the need to seek medical care)
  • Your past and future pain and suffering, disability, and/or disfigurement

Defective product cases are often heavily contested by the manufacturer or seller and their lawyers, so you need a legal team that's experienced and will fight for you to get the justice you deserve. Get started with a free consultation and learn how we can help.
