Product Liability

You expect the products you purchase or use to function properly. Perhaps more importantly, the law requires that all consumer products must be safe for their intended use. That’s because when a product malfunctions, or when it’s not designed safely, innocent people can suffer permanent injuries or even death. Our product liability attorneys represent clients injured by a vast array of defective recreational and consumer products, including:

  • Unsafely Designed Cars and Trucks
  • Children’s Products
  • Unsafe Furniture (Tip-Overs)
  • Cranes and Lift Equipment
  • Dangerous Toys
  • Baby Slings
  • Industrial Equipment
  • Lawnmowers
  • Power Tools
  • Hunting Accessories and Devices

The product liability team at Feldman Shepherd has obtained many multimillion dollar verdicts and settlements in product liability litigation in both state and federal courts, including an $18 million settlement against the manufacturer of a portable electrical heater; an $8 million recovery for the family of a child who suffocated while being carried by his mother in an infant baby sling; and $8 million for a hunter who became paralyzed from the waist down as the result of a defective tree stand.

The attorneys at Feldman Shepherd are experienced in handling unique and complex product liability cases. If you or someone you know has been injured as a result of an unsafe product, our attorneys are here to help you recover for your pain and suffering, economic losses, emotional distress, and medical expenses.
