Indiana lawyers representing clients injured by defective products
Product manufacturers have a legal responsibility:
- To see that products are designed to be reasonably safe for the intended user
- To see that products are properly manufactured to meet safety standards for use
- To provide clear warnings and instructions on how to safely use their product
When dangerous products harm consumers, manufacturers can be held liable for failing to meet their legal responsibility.

- Spray paint cans

What to do if you are injured by a dangerous product

- Get the contact information of any witnesses to your injury.
- Take photos of the dangerous product.
- Take photos of injuries.
- If possible, save the product, its packaging, and any instructions.
The National Consumer Product Safety Commission recalls hundreds of products every year. Even so, many Americans are injured, and some even die from faulty products.
From bad product design, such as SUV roofs that crush during rollover, to medications that become contaminated during storage, the manufacturer, distributor, or retail store is responsible for consumer safety.
