When a poorly-designed product injures someone, when a product malfunctions and causes serious harm, or when a manufacturer knows that a product is unsafe, but sells it without warning, people can be seriously hurt.
Products liability is the area of law that holds designers, manufacturers, and sellers of defective products responsible for the harm their products cause. Our lawyers have successfully sued manufacturers of products ranging from automobiles, recreational equipment, consumer electronics, power tools, medical devices, elevators and escalators, and countless other consumer products.
Products liability cases involve a depth of technical knowledge, and the fortitude to go up against multinational corporations that manufacture products. The law in this area is complex and ever-changing in a world where technology moves much faster than the courts.
Most law firms do not have the experience, resources, or desire to invest in and handle large products liability matters. At Bekman, Marder, Hopper, Malarkey & Perlin, L.L.C., we do. We have taken on some of the largest and most powerful companies in the world in order to represent our clients and hold those companies accountable for the products they place in the market.
