Our attorneys handle cases of product liability and defective products. Today products of all sorts are so complex, come from so many sources and are the object of such marketing hype that it is impossible for the old adage “buyer beware” to apply.  Consumers have a right to expect that the products they buy are safe.  This however is not always the case.  Many products are poorly designed, improperly manufactured or inadequately labeled.  Injuries and even death are sometimes the result of these defective products.

Injuries from Machinery and Product DefectsOur product liability attorneys have the experience, knowledge and resources to require manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers and others who make and distribute defective products to be held responsible for any personal injuries or death caused by their defective product.

The following are examples of the types of injuries from machinery and defective product cases, either settled or tried to verdict by Attorney Bill Jorden.

  • Attorney Bill Jorden represented the estate of a decedent who was crushed between a garbage truck and loading dock when the garbage truck drifted backwards in neutral.  The garbage truck was only equipped with the back up warning device that would be activated when the truck was placed in reverse gear.
  • Suit was filed on behalf of the estates of two plumbers whose work had put them in direct contact with asbestos insulation and who worked with products containing asbestos.  Both gentlemen died as a result of mesothelioma – a rare form of cancer uniquely caused by asbestos exposure.
  • Due to a tire defect, a blowout caused the operator of the car to run into a utility pole.
  • Other defective product cases include dangerous drugs, medical devices, machinery defects, tractor accident/rollover, household products, dangerous toys, dangerous household items and appliance, boats, jet skis, ATV and Rhino accidents/rollovers.
