Products Liability / Product Defects


Our firm took on the manufacturer to recover $2.9 million in a jury verdict when the seatbelt in the car she was traveling in failed to restrain in an accident, leaving  this 71-year old with two broken legs.


When you purchase a product, you have every right to assume that it will be safe for you and your family. Unfortunately, each year many products that are sold for personal or business use are hazardous. These defective products often end up injuring or killing innocent victims.

Products liability claims arise in variety of situations. Common examples include:

  • Defective motor vehicles and motor vehicle parts, including seatbelts, airbags, tires, faulty switches and brakes
  • Defective household appliances or chemicals
  • Dangerous machinery, equipment, power tools, elevators or escalators
  • Unsafe medical devices
  • Dangerous children’s toys

Manufacturers and retailers of these dangerous products may be held responsible for compensating victims for manufacturing defects, dangerous designs and/or inadequate instructions or warnings.

If you believe you have been injured as a result of a defective product, you should immediately contact Jarve Kaplan Granato Starr. Products liability cases are difficult to prove and immediate steps must be taken to preserve your rights. Most importantly, the defective product itself must be obtained and made available for inspection before it is lost or destroyed. If the product is not properly safeguarded, it may be impossible to prove it was defective.

If you have suffered a serious personal injury or have lost a loved one due to personal injury, please contact our firm to discuss your potential case.
