Defective Product Lawsuit

We assume the products we buy to be safe to use, but thousands of people each year learn this isn't always the case. Injuries caused by defective or poorly designed products happen all too often, and victims deserve just compensation. The experienced lawyers at Barfoot & Schoettker are dedicated to protecting their client's best interest and will ensure the best representation possible for each unique case.

The goal of product liability laws is to help protect consumers from dangerous products, while holding manufacturers, distributors, and retailers responsible for putting into the marketplace products that they knew or should have known were dangerous or defective. Depending upon the jurisdiction, the liability of the various parties involved as the product passes from the manufacturer to the consumer will vary. Product liability claims can be brought under a number of theories, depending upon local law.

Design Defects

Liability arises from a mistake or oversight in the design of a product, which makes it dangerous when used as intended, or when used for another reasonably foreseeable purpose.

Manufacturing Defects

Liability arises from a defect that results from the manufacturing process.

Marketing Defects

Marketing defect cases involve such issues as inadequate warning labels or instructions, which may prevent a user from recognizing a defect in the product or from being aware of how to safely use or apply the product.

At Barfoot & Schoettker we are currently looking at cases involving the products listed below.

  • Defective Medical Devices
  • Rollover Accidents
  • Dangerous Tires
  • Defective Airbags
  • Defective Saws
  • Defective Seat Belts
  • Defective Seat Backs

  • And more

The consequences of defective products can be devastating. Contact the lawyers at Barfoot & Schoettker where they will carefully review your injuries, records and the product in question to determine if you have a case.
