Defective Products and Drugs

Death and serious injury from product and drug defects are not unusual in our modern world.  A drug or product may have been designed or tested improperly, manufactured improperly, or may be marketed in a way that fails to warn users of hidden danger associated with the product or drug.

Claims for death and serious injury caused by defective drugs and products require a high level of skill by an attorney.  Extensive research into the manufacturing process and the hiring of experts are often necessary and should be done as early as possible. Often the defect is not known until an investigation following a catastrophic injury or death reveals a link between the product or drug and the injury.  Our Product Liability and Defective Drug attorneys have the experience and skill necessary to understand the technical aspects of the product or drug that caused injury or death, extensive experience in trials, and knowledge of highly qualified experts that may be necessary for your case.  In addition, our attorneys know the proper procedures and timelines required to protect your claim.

Lawsuits for defective products and drugs in North Carolina, Tennessee, Michigan, and Georgia are subject to laws that can limit the time within which you must file suit even if you are not aware of the defect. If you suspect that you have been injured by a defective product or drug do not delay in contacting us.
