Have you been injured by a medical product?
Have you been harmed when a tool you were using failed?
Have you been injured or become sick from contaminated food?

Burg Simpson can help! Do not wait to call the products liability attorneys at Burg Simpson to discuss your legal rights.

When you purchase a product, be it a vehicle, pharmaceutical drug, or even food to eat, you expect that what you purchased is safe to use and that if there are risks, the manufacturer has warned you about them. If, however, the product is not safe or the warnings are inadequate, you can suffer serious life-altering injuries. When this happens, you need a products liability attorney who has the resources and experience necessary to prove your case and not back down against the biggest companies in the world. You can find such attorneys in Burg Simpson’s Cincinnati, Ohio office. They are ready to fight to get you the compensation you deserve.

Our skilled team of attorneys, legal experts, and co-counsel partners are here to review the facts, develop your case, and if necessary, take it to trial. Contact a product liability lawyer immediately by filling out our FREE Case Evaluation form here, or call us at 513-852-5600.

WHAT IS A PRODUCTS LIABILITY CLAIM?
While each state’s laws are different, generally speaking, a manufacturer, seller, distributor or retailer can be held responsible for putting a defective or dangerous product out into the marketplace. While there are innumerable ways in which a product can fail, the legal claims arising from such a failure typically fall into one of three categories: design defects, manufacturing defects, or inadequate warnings.

What Types of Products Liability Cases Does Burg Simpson Handle?

If you have been hurt by a defective product, call the experienced attorneys in Burg Simpson’s Cincinnati, Ohio office. No matter what type of product harmed you, Burg Simpson’s product liability lawyers have resources necessary to analyze the product, find out what went wrong, and hold the manufacturer responsible. Some examples of cases we have handled in the past include:

  • Medical Products
    • Implanted Medical Devices
    • Pharmaceutical Products
    • Over-the-Counter Products
    • Herbal Supplements
  • Unsafe and Defective Vehicles
    • Cars and Trucks
    • Farm Equipment
    • Buses
  • Defective Consumer Goods
  • Contaminated Food

We are ready to analyze your case and help you today. Call a Burg Simpson defective product attorney now at 513-852-5600.

A design defect occurs when the risks associated with the product’s design outweigh the benefits of that design. If there is a design defect associated with a product, then every product incorporating that design element may be defective.

A manufacturing defect occurs when something goes wrong in the manufacturing process for a particular product. In other words, as a result of a flaw in the manufacturing process, the particular product placed on the market was out of line with the manufacturer’s specifications. Depending on where and how the flaw arose in the manufacturing process, a manufacturing defect can affect a single isolated product or can affect thousands of products.

Manufacturers must provide adequate warnings and instructions to allow their products to be used safely. This means that a manufacturer must inform consumers of the risks associated with the use of the product, how to safely use the product, and who should not use the product. A product liability claim can arise when a manufacturer fails to adequately warn or instruct consumers of the product’s risks resulting in harm.

What Do I Do If I Am The Victim Of A Defective Product?

If a dangerous product has left you or a loved one seriously injured, you need to speak with one of Burg Simpson’s experienced products liability attorneys as soon as possible. There are time limits for filing cases and those time limits vary by state. If you do not file your case in time, you will be barred from receiving the compensation you deserve. Do not wait! Call Burg Simpson today.

In addition to calling Burg Simpson, it is critical that you preserve as much evidence as possible to support your legal claim. This means you should NOT throw out the product that harmed you. Rather, you should keep the dangerous product somewhere safe so that it can be inspected later. You should also hold onto any packaging, instructions, receipts, or other materials in your possession that relates to the dangerous device.
