Experienced Defective Product Attorneys
Defective products can cause serious injury when you least expect it. Consumers are regularly injured by car parts, medical devices and household appliances. Faulty work equipment can pose a danger as well, and injury from this equipment may not be covered by worker’s compensation.
In the state of Wisconsin, manufacturers may be held liable for injuries caused by their products. Manufacturers are required to design and build products that are not “unreasonably dangerous,” or they are considered defective. Manufacturers are also required to provide adequate instructions on the proper use of the product, as well as clear warnings about the dangers associated with using or owning the product. If you are injured because of a “unreasonably dangerous” product, or a product that did not have proper instructions, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Defective product cases are rarely straightforward, and are often heavily contested by the product manufacturer’s lawyers. If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective product, call the law offices of Gingras, Thomsen & Wachs. We’ll fight for the compensation you deserve.
