Savannah Dangerous Product Attorneys Protect Patients and Consumers

Aggressive pursuit of compensation for a variety of dangerous products

Whether it’s the appliances in your kitchen, the vehicle you drive or even the medical devices surgeons implant into your body, you count on manufactured products to be safe and free of defects that can harm you or jeopardize your health and well-being. We expect manufacturers to test their products, affix warning labels and use quality materials. Still, defective products make their way into the market, putting people at risk of serious injury and even death. At Owens & Mulherin Injury Lawyers, we strive to hold big corporations responsible when their defective products cause harm to others. Our attorneys have handled a variety of cases, including those involving dangerous industrial machinery in paper mills, defective exercise equipment and defective automobile airbags. If you or a loved one was injured by a defective medical device, household item, vehicle component or other product, trust our law firm to pursue justice for you.

Determined representation for medical device defect injuries

Many medical devices promise to alleviate symptoms and promote recovery. Unfortunately, some do more harm than good. These are the main types of medical device defects that can cause harm to a patient:

  • Design defects — Manufacturers that rush to meet deadlines or consumer demand often fail to subject product designs to proper review before the production process. Poorly designed medical devices put every patient at risk, because the defect exists in every unit produced.
  • Manufacturing defects — When medical device manufacturers skip steps during the production process or use low-quality components and materials, otherwise safe products can become dangerous. These products may perform at a substandard level or be prone to breakdowns, requiring surgery to remove and replace the product.
  • Marketing defects — Manufacturers must properly label and market products so patients are fully informed of the risks and doctors are not tempted to use the products for “off-label” purposes. Many medical device injuries occur because manufacturers mislead the public or the U.S. Food and Drug Administration about their products’ intended purposes and the conditions they can alleviate.

Medical device injury cases we handle include those involving:

When we take on a defective medical device claim, we investigate the product and determine if the manufacturer took shortcuts in its design, manufacture or marketing.

Seeking justice for injuries from consumer product defects

In addition to defective medical devices, our law firm represents people who are injured by a variety of defective consumer products, such as:

  • Defective auto parts — Thousands of cars, trucks and SUVs are recalled every year due to potentially dangerous flaws in airbags, brakes, ignitions, transmissions, seats, gas pedals and more.
  • Defective building materialsAsbestos is a well-known building material linked to a variety of cancers, including mesothelioma. Although its use has been nearly banned in the United States, asbestos-related diseases have long latency periods, so people continue to develop illnesses long after their exposure. Other building materials also may be dangerous, including certain types of paint, metals and chemicals used during construction.
  • Defective household products — Items in your home can pose serious risks to you and your family. Space heaters, boilers, grills, kitchen appliances, baby furniture, power tools, cleaning products, lawn and yard equipment, and even personal grooming items have been shown to cause harm due to defects.
  • Defective industrial machinery — Industrial accidents are often traced to defects in machinery or the design of a factory floor that makes workstations unsafe. When a machine defect causes a work accident, the injured worker is not limited to workers’ compensation. The worker can also recover personal injury damages through a third-party lawsuit.

Defective consumer product cases we currently handle also include:

In many cases, products don’t cause harm until weeks, months or even years after they’ve been purchased. However, to prevail in your case, you must be able to prove the defect existed at the time of sale. You must also bring your product defect case before the statute of repose bars recovery. For these reasons, it’s important to have an attorney on your side who can investigate these products and prove that the manufacturer is liable.
