Your Product Liability Lawyer

Do you need an experienced product liability lawyer?

Manufacturing, designing, and distributing tangible goods and products are accompanied by a certain amount of potential legal liability. Whether a plaintiff alleges defective design, improper manufacture, or inadequate warnings, product liability lawsuits call for an aggressive legal defense.

Product liability cases can be tricky to defend because they have multiple layers of complexity. A product liability lawsuit against your corporation can be financially devastating to the organization, not to mention the toll defending a lawsuit takes on you and your employees.

Is your product really responsible for damages? Products and goods can malfunction or have defects that cause damage or injuries to consumers. However, in many cases, the consumer may have modified the product or used it in an unintended way, such that he or she may ultimately be found to have caused the problem. An experienced product liability lawyer can determine how the person using your product—or someone else—may be at fault for misusing or modifying it, thus causing damages.

To prevail in a product liability lawsuit, hire a product liability lawyer with extensive experience defending businesses against product liability claims. The attorneys at Hendrickson & Long, PLLC can help you navigate the legal process, investigate the claims, and determine what the best defense will be.
