Defective Product Injury Attorneys in Birmingham, Alabama
Defective products can come in many shapes and forms. If you have been injured by a defective product, you probably already understand how complicated the process of holding the maker of the product responsible. We have navigated litigation for clients over the years for all sorts of injuries caused my all sorts of products. It is vital that you hire an attorney as soon after an injury occurs because the manufacturer of the product will begin the process of defending itself immediately after it learns of an injury its product may have caused. Keep in mind that the product must be kept in the form that it was in after the incident. If the product is altered or lost, a product liability claim will likely fail. Also, it is important to retain experts early. Expert witnesses are generally hired in product liability cases to help the jury understand the product defect. Sometimes, there are very few experts in a particular field, so it is important to get the best expert before the company hires that expert. If you or someone you care about has been hurt by a defective product, call us and let us help.

Why It’s Important to Hire Experienced Product Liability Attorneys
The product liability lawyers at Farris, Riley & Pitt have extensive knowledge and experience when it comes to representing consumers who were injured due to an unsafe product. There are many potential ways a company or retailer could potentially have contributed to your injury. If the manufacturer used ineffective material that led to a product breaking and injuring you or a loved you, you may be able to collect compensation from not only the manufacturer but their suppliers, the retail outlet that sold you the item and other parties along the supply chain.
A product doesn’t even necessarily have to suffer from a manufacturing, material or design defect to qualify as a defective product case. If a properly functioning product didn’t come with adequate safety or cautionary information, resulting in inappropriate, unintended or hazardous use leading to an injury, that manufacturer may still be held responsible for the injury.
