Product Liability

Pursuit of Product Liability Claims

A defective or dangerous product can cause not only injury, but death in some instances. A product liability case can result from an unsafe product, deceptive advertising, improper labeling, misleading instructions and other causes.

At Treon & Shook, PLLC, we have taken to court manufacturers as large as Mazda and as small as Vitamin World.

Representative case: Our client was in an accident when her seat belt malfunctioned. She died as a result of an embolism caused by a seat belt injury.

Full Range of Product Liability Litigation Handled

Our AV-rated* attorneys have experience with a wide range of experts and issues related to product liability. In some cases, the experts who are retained for testimony can be a critical piece of the litigation. We work on a regular basis with engineers, forensic accountants, environmental experts, safety engineers and industrial hygienists to name a few.

Representative case: Our client was injured by a health food supplement (cascara sagrada is not recognized as safe by the FDA) which caused a tear in his colon and resulted in two surgeries and a colostomy. We are actively litigating against the manufacturer of the herbal supplement.

The types of product liability litigation our lawyers handle include:

  • Automotive products such as seatbelts, airbags, brakes and accelerators
  • Medical devices
  • Defective design of consumer products such as toys, recalls and household items
  • Construction materials including those which release or expose asbestos

Our law firm has a sliding scale fee agreement that our clients appreciate. When you receive a settlement, our attorney fee percentage will vary depending upon the amount of settlement you receive, and when during the litigation process the matter resolves.
