Personal Injury Attorney
Products containing inherent defects that cause harm to a consumer of the product, or someone to whom the product was loaned, given, etc., are the subjects of products liability suits.
Recently we have been involved in the General Motors Recall litigation. Brent Coon and Associates filed suit on behalf of a Missouri man who’s daughter was severly injured in an auto accident involving the GM ignition switch litigation.
Products liability claims can be based on negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty depending on the jurisdiction within which the claim is based. As there is no federal products liability law, many states have enacted comprehensive products liability statutes. These statutory provisions can be very diverse. The law firm of Brent Coon and Associates handles a variety of traditional product liability claims, including the following:
- Defectively manufactured equipment and tools
- Defective vehicles (including airbag, seatbelt, rollover, and design cases)
- Defectively manufactured toys
- Toxic Airplane Cabin Air Lawsuits
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Swimming Pool Accidents
- Airbag Recall Lawsuits
- Defective Guardrail Lawsuits
- General Motors Recall Lawsuits
- Cruise Ship Accident Lawsuits
