Bhurtel Law Firm helps you pursue your claim if a defective product has injured you. Our products liability lawyer knows how to settle your case or persuasively present your case to a jury.

Helping consumers who were harmed by defective products

When you buy a product, you expect it to work properly and be safe to use. However, manufacturers send many products to market before they are adequately tested. Our product liability lawyer understands how to get you the compensation you need for your injuries. Our legal team develops a winning strategy for any type of product liability claim, including:

  • Household products and appliances
  • Automobile safety equipment
  • Gas tanks and containers
  • Machinery and power tools
  • Furniture and ladders
  • Toys and playground equipment
  • Medical devices
  • Pharmaceuticals

I was injured by a defective product — what do I need to know?

The defendants in a products liability case can include the manufacturer, designer, parts supplier, distributor, wholesaler and retailer. A product can have a design defect, a manufacturing defect or a “failure to warn” defect. To succeed in a product liability case, the consumer must not have altered the product and must have used it for its intended purpose.

Your cause of action for a defective product will be based on three theories: negligence, breach of warranty and strict liability.

  • Negligence: We examine the reasonableness of the defendant’s conduct. Manufacturers must use reasonable care in designing, producing and inspecting their products, and they have a duty to test their products and warn consumers of hazardous conditions.
  • Breach of warranty: We examine the paperwork that the manufacturer provides with its product. When a warranty is breached, an injured party may recover damages. The warranty doesn’t have to be in writing — every product comes with an implied warranty of fitness for its intended purpose.
  • Strict product liability: We build your case to show that the product was defective. With strict liability, you do not need to prove the manufacturer was negligent.  You just have to prove that the product was dangerously defective.

Our personal injury lawyer understands the complexities of a products liability lawsuit. We investigate the facts and then aggressively pursue the compensation you deserve.
