Defective Products

When you buy any product online or in the store, you expect it to be safe. However, sustaining an injury from a faulty product happens more often than people believe. These injuries can often be severe or even permanent, resulting in financial and emotional turmoil due to expensive medical treatments and bills.

At the law firm of Salenger, Sack, Kimmel & Bavaro, LLP, we believe all companies should be held accountable for their products, particularly large companies who have the resources to regulate quality control. Our experienced team of product liability attorneys believes you deserve the best possible representation. We fight for the fair compensation you deserve for  any injury sustained from a faulty product.

Don’t Wait After Your Product Injury

From big to small, defective products pose all sorts of injuries and health risks to consumers when they are not made or labeled  properly. Some common faulty product claims include:

  • Child products/toys
  • Motor vehicles or parts
  • Medical equipment
  • Apparel
  • Safety products

These common claims are only a few examples of defective product cases that have caused lots of injuries, including: fractures, amputations, burns, organ damage, choking hazards, loss of sight, and more. It’s important to seek legal advice from an attorney who is experienced in defective product law as soon as your accident occurs. That gives you the best possible chance of recovering a just reward for any damages suffered.
