Products Liability Lawyers

All too often, companies design and create dangerous products that injure or kill unsuspecting consumers.  When this happens, it is important to hold those companies liable for the harm they have caused.   If you have been injured by what you believe to be a defective product, you should seek legal advice from an experienced products liability attorney as to your rights. We have extensive resources to help you pursue your products liability claim.  Call us at 919-847-4804 or toll free at 877-847-4804.

Products liability cases generally fall into one of three categories:

  • Manufacturing Defects – occurs in the process of making the actual product
  • Design Defects – occurs in the process of conceptualizing or designing the product
  • Marketing Defects – occurs when a danger is known but the consumer is not warned

Some current product liability cases that we can assist you on include:

  • Darvon® and Darvocet®- The FDA has requested the makers of Darvon and Darvocet to withdraw these products from the market as they have been associated with serious heart problems.
