Product Liability

Any product may be defective causing serious injury or death.   Many people are familiar with defective and dangerous prescription drugs, automobile rollovers and tire blow-outs and there are also a number of products such as lawn tools, ladders, airbags, seat belts, helmets or mechanical products that are designed negligently or operate negligently causing injury or death. This area of law takes highly specialized knowledge and our attorneys know how to integrate principles of engineering and mechanics to present a persuasive product liability claim.

In 2011, our lawfirm represented the two surving sons of a woman who was killed as a result of an oversized prescription morphine pill.  Also called a "fat" pill, the morphine pill contained a larger amount of morphine than it was  for. This woman, the mother of our clients, was prescribed the morphine pill for management of her chronic pain condition.  After several days of taking the "fat" morphine, the excess morphine caused her to stop breathing and she dies in her sleep.  Unfortunately, the no morphine pills were discarded after her death, because a police investigation did not suspect any foul play.  In order to prove that the pills were "fat" pills containing a dangerous amount of morphine, our lawfirm retained a top level toxicologist.  Ultimately, the manufacturer of the prescription drug and the pharmacy settled for a confidential amount.  One of the surviving sons has since used a portion of the settlement to pay for and attend lawschol.
