Faulty Product Injury


When a corporation manufactures and sells a product, they have a responsibility to make sure it is safe for its intended use and to warn the public of any potential hazards it may pose. In the case of an injury caused by a product, research and investigation can determine who is at fault. 

Product injury can be caused by:

Defective Design
Manufacturing Defect
Inadequate Consumer Warning
Breach of Warranty

If you or a loved one have suffered a serious injury as a result of a defective or dangerous product, Anthony Urie can review the circumstances surrounding your injury and determine if you may be entitled to compensation.

scarring
loss of opportunity to enjoy life
