Wrongful Death Caused by Defective Products

Ohio Wrongful Death Attorneys | Product Defect Lawyers

American consumers use many manufactured products every day from coffee makers to automobiles. Manufacturers and retailers have a duty to design and manufacture their products to ensure they are safe and do not needlessly expose consumers to the risk of injury or wrongful death. Unfortunately, many products placed on the market have been found to be defective, sometimes resulting in injury and death. News of product recalls is a common occurrence, but defective product recalls often come too late.

Electrical products frequently cause burns and fires. Space heaters, baseboard heaters and electric blankets can be especially dangerous.

Faulty kerosene heaters and propane tanks can cause fires or explosions.

Design and manufacturing defects in vital components of automobiles, including brakes, tires, gas tanks, steering systems, roofs, air bags and seat belts result in catastrophic injury or wrongful death.
