All too often, media reports these days are flooded with product recalls due to unsafe and defective products. Sadly, these defective products are frequently recalled only after a personal injury has occurred as a result of the product’s defect.
Individuals or companies are responsible for personal injuries that result from defective products and are held liable due to the product liability laws in the United States. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a defective product you need an experienced product liability lawyer.

The term “product” can include anything purchased or used by consumers, including but not limited to:
Blake Green has a proven record of success in product liability cases. Claims for personal injury from a defective product can generally proceed under three theories of liability:
Products Liability is generally considered a strict liability offense. Strict liability wrongs do not depend on the degree of carelessness by the defendant. Translated to products liability terms, a defendant is liable when it is shown that the product is defective. It is irrelevant whether the manufacturer or supplier exercised great care; if there is a defect in the product that causes harm, the manufacturer or supplier will be liable for it.
Consumer protection laws not only prescribe certain standards for product manufacturers and merchants, but also provide recourse for consumers who are physically or financially harmed when the goods purchased are not fit for their intended purpose. In those instances, it is important to retain a product liability attorney to hold the responsible party liable for selling a defective product.
