Products Liability

Everyday products we take for granted can be unsafe to consumers due to defective design, defective manufacturing, or inadequate warnings. The Gansen Law Group has handled numerous such cases, including work with another firm on a defective drug case that resulted in a $48.2 million dollar verdict for a young man whose life was forever changed by a toxic reaction.

There are a number of products that fit this category. The Gansen Law Group has litigated cases involving corkscrews, security systems, aviation components, roll off bins and dumpsters, flower vases, cars and trucks, and many others. A horrifying number of accidents are caused each year by people innocently using defective products. Whether the defective product accident resulted from negligence in the design of the product, its manufacturing, or its instructions, the results are the same: an avoidable accident that resulted in injury.

Some examples of commonly defective products include:

  • Airbag deployment or sensor failure
  • Ignition switch issues in GM vehicles, including the recently-recalled Chevy Cobalt
  • Skecher Shape-up shoes
  • Sudden acceleration in an automobile
  • Exploding LG and Samsung washing machines
  • Ovarian cancer from using Johnson & Johnson talc products
  • Ladders collapsing
  • Defective spinal screws, spinal rods, and other spinal implants made by Eminent Spine, Medtronic, Spinal Solutions, Orthofix, AccelSPINE, Alliance Spine, Integra (Malibu Pedicle Screw System) Spinal Elements, Spineart, Spine View, DiFusion, Genysys Spine, Intralink-Spine, Spine360, SpineSmith, Verticore, Encore Medical, Wenzel Spine, and others
  • Defective medical devices such as hip replacements, standing wheelchairs, knee replacements, or transvaginal mesh
  • Defective drugs such as ibuprofen, levaquin, acetaminophen, acne medication, Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim), Vioxx, DMAA, NuvaRing, OxyElite Pro, VERSA-1, Effexor, Dilantin, Pradaxa, Risperdal, antidepressants in general, and a host of others
  • Industrial equipment such as ramps, loaders, or lifts
  • Escalators and elevators
  • Birth defects resulting from taking Zofran for morning sickness during pregnancy

If you or someone close to you has been injured or killed by a defective product, we offer our sincere condolences. In addition to our sympathy, however, we can also offer the services of a product liability lawyer who will fight on your behalf to correct the injustice. Many products are designed without regard to the real life situations under which they will be used, and when a product is used as directed and still causes an injury or death, the manufacturer can be at fault.

We trust that every care has been used in the design and production of the products we use, and when that trust is betrayed, it is not our fault. When a car rolls over if it is in an otherwise unremarkable accident, when a medication such as Vioxx or Motrin creates unanticipated reactions, when a faulty switch results in an electrical accident, and in every other case where a product can be shown to be defective, a personal injury attorney with our firm can help set things right. If a defective product causes an accident that results in injury, product liability laws usually require that the designers, manufacturers, and/or retailers pay for medical costs, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and/or other related compensatory payouts. It is their responsibilty to provide adequate compensation for any damage done to the user of said products. Seeking an attorney to help you gain what you deserve in terms of compensation is your best option to ensuring you are not being overlooked or taken advantage of.
