Defective Products

Defective Products

We rely on products manufactured by others in almost every action of every day, from the vehicles we drive, to the medicines we take, to the machines and appliances we use to do our work and care for our homes. The manufacturers and sellers have a duty to their customers to make the products safe or provide appropriate warnings about using them safely. Most of the time, they fulfill their duty, and we don't even think about the safety of the many products we use.

Sometimes, though, the process breaks down. It may be the result of a flawed design, faulty manufacturing, or a failure to warn of a danger that's necessarily present in a useful product. Common product liability claims include those involving:

  • defective cars, including dangerous defects in airbags, seatbelts, tires, ignitions and more
  • unsafe SUVs, which may be especially prone to rollover accidents
  • snowmobiles, trucks, and farm equipment
  • defective power tools
  • flammable products
  • hazardous children’s toys
  • allergic reactions
  • dangerous pharmaceutical drugs or medical devices

Whatever the nature of the defect, the manufacturer, distributor, supplier, or retailer may be liable when it causes a serious injury.

Minnesota Product Liability Attorneys with Skill and Compassion

From a legal standpoint, product liability cases involve complex questions of law and often, very detailed factual questions. Not every person injured by a product has a viable lawsuit. But everyone who has been seriously injured, whether or not their injury is actionable, deserves answers and guidance. That's why Conlin Law Firm encourages people who have been injured by a possibly defective product to contact us with their questions. We are patient listeners who care not just about cases, but about the real people behind them.

We'll begin with an initial meeting, in our office, at the home or hospital, or by phone, whichever best meets the prospective client's needs. That's when our team begins gathering information to assess the strength or weakness of a potential case, and offering support to the injured person and their family. We consult with experts who are qualified to examine the product and determine whether it was genuinely defective. Conlin Law Firm offers not just compassion, but over thirty years of experience analyzing, preparing, and trying product liability cases.

Partnering with Product Liability Victims for Recovery

Dealing with a serious personal injury is hard enough. In order to face the months or years of recovery following such an injury, people need to have a team they can count on. The attorneys and staff at Conlin Law Firm are honored to be part of that team.

As with every smoothly-operating team, each member has a role to play. Conlin Law Firm's role is to handle the legal aspect, working to achieve the best possible settlement or verdict. We want our clients to be able to focus on their physical and emotional recovery, and the needs of their family.

Not every case goes to trial, but we prepare every case as if it will, because we know that detailed and thorough case preparation leads to better settlements as well as better trial outcomes. Conlin Law Firm deliberately maintains a low case volume so that each case, and the client behind it, receive all the attention they need.

We encourage prospective clients who are wondering if they have a viable product liability case to contact us as soon as possible. A consultation with Conlin Law Firm will resolve worries, questions and concerns that only an attorney knowledgeable in this area of law can address. In addition, the earlier a case is brought to us, the better our opportunity to locate witnesses and preserve evidence that might otherwise be lost to delay.
