Holding Manufacturers Responsible In Products Liability Cases
As defective products can lead to severe and disabling injuries, products liability cases are in place to hold manufacturers and merchants accountable for these injuries. The lawyers at Nichol & Associates, Attorneys at Law, in Knoxville, have been helping injured people in state and federal products liability litigation since the 1970s.
Legal Counsel You Can Trust
As experienced Tennessee attorneys, we know what the courts expect. We will conduct a thorough investigation to uncover evidence and retain experts to testify for you. Whether through negotiation or litigation, we will do what is necessary for you to fully recover compensation for your injury. This includes recovering costs for medical bills and other expenses. It also includes reimbursement of lost wages. Our goal is to hold all negligent parties responsible for the pain and anguish you and your family suffered.
Skilled And Responsive Representation
Successfully bringing a products liability suit can be challenging. Besides showing that the product is defective, there needs to be proof that the defect caused your injury. There are legal deadlines with liability cases, and the failure to meet these deadlines can lead to dismissal of your lawsuit. We understand how to investigate these matters and prove liability in court.
Holding Products Liability Manufacturers Accountable
Products liability cases arise when a business negligently designs or manufactures a defective product that results in someone’s injury. In some instances, we can hold a manufacturer accountable when warnings on the product are inadequate to inform consumers of dangers in using these products.
Defective And Dangerous Drugs And Medical Devices
Nichol & Associates, Attorneys at Law, has tried many types of medical device cases involving hip implants, knee implants and medical mesh. We have also held pharmaceutical companies liable for the drugs they made that resulted in medical complications, injuries and deaths. The knowledge and experience we possess are essential for the resolution of these types of cases.
Products we use in our everyday lives can be dangerous through improper user instructions, design or manufacture error. Here are some hazardous product examples:
- Motor vehicles: An improperly inflating air bag that does not protect car passengers
- Tools: Incorrect user instructions on packaging that leads to injury
- Personal electronics: An exploding battery causing severe disability
- Small appliances: A malfunctioning space heater that causes a fire
- Children’s toys: An improperly manufactured toy that creates a choking hazard
Our firm is capable of taking on large manufacturers and winning.
