Defective Products

You are surrounded by mechanical, electrical and chemical products from the moment you wake up and use an electric hair dryer, a toaster oven or coffee pot; or you use your electric garage door opener or drive your car to your office. If you are injured by a product, the first step is to secure the actual product that caused the injury. Call us immediately after the accident, and we can have the product completely inspected or analyzed by an engineer to determine the cause of the accident.
