Every day products manufactured around the world are shipped to California. Unfortunately, many of the products consumers purchase or receive as gifts contain manufacturing or design defects. Occasionally, a defective product causes harm to the user.
A manufacturer, distributor or retailer is liable to the ultimate consumer if a defect causes injury, so long as the product was used in a reasonably foreseeable manner. In many cases, the responsible party is held strictly liable for injuries to the user.
NSH&M has significant experience handling product defect cases. We work with the best engineers and product experts in the field, and as a firm without associates, only a partner with significant trial experience will handle the case from the initial interview to the jury verdict. Product liability cases are often defended vigorously, given the impact a settlement or verdict can have on the product’s design or continued marketability. NSH&M has the necessary trial experience in product defect cases to ensure an injured party enjoys the best result possible.
