Catastrophic Injury & Defective Products

Every year, thousands of Americans are injured due to dangerous consumer products. Many of these injuries could be avoided if the distributor or manufacturer of these products took additional steps to ensure the safety of its consumers. Inadequate drug labeling, poor manufacturing, and product recalls can affect virtually any consumer, often with catastrophic effects.

Our injury cases include representing people and families who have been injured or killed in Toyota vehicles that experience sudden unintended acceleration; in GM autos with defective ignition switches that can cause a vehicle to lose power while in operation; in serious automotive and trucking accidents; through medical malpractice. Some of our most unfortunate victims have been exposed to sexual misconduct by teachers in our schools, and we have been proud to step forward and represent these children and their families in court.
