As consumers, we rely on a wide range of products every day. We trust that the items we purchase for ourselves and our loved ones are safe and free of any defect that could cause harm.
Unfortunately, however, defective and dangerous products often make their way into the market. If you have been injured by a defective or dangerous product, you may be entitled to compensation in a product liability claim.

Do I Need a Defective Product Lawyer for Product Defect Causes and Injuries?
Manufacturers, distributors, retailers, suppliers, and others who sell products to consumers are responsible for injuries, illnesses, or deaths caused by their products.
Harm to a consumer from a product can be caused by:
- Failure to warn.
- Improper labeling.
- Manufacturing defects.
- Design flaws.
- Unknown side effects.
- Marketing misrepresentation.
Some of the most common types of products that can cause consumers harm because of a defect, mislabeling, or contaminant include the following:
- Motor vehicles.
- Children’s toys, clothing, and furniture.
- Prescription medications.
- Over-the-counter drugs.
- Medical devices.
- Food and beverages.
Some of the most frequently occurring consequences of dangerous products include choking, brain injury, lacerations, organ failure, spinal cord injury, drowning, burns, heart attack, foodborne illness, and stroke. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) monitor consumer incident reports and initiate recalls when products are identified as potentially hazardous.
What is a Product Liability Lawsuit?
Product liability cases can be complex. However, the product liability lawyers at Marasco & Nesselbush have years of experience successfully handling defective product cases and will ensure that your rights are protected and a strong case is built on your behalf.
One of the first things a lawyer will do in a product liability case is gather evidence to prove that there was some form of a defect. Once we have established a defect in the design or manufacture of a product, an experienced attorney will work closely with medical care providers to establish the extent of the injuries sustained by the consumer.
A consumer may have a case against a manufacturer of a defective product under a strict liability theory. These types of claims are built upon the manufacturer’s responsibility for a defective product. Essentially, even if the manufacturer was not negligent if the product is defective and causes harm, the manufacturer and those who sold the product may be held responsible.
