Manufacturer Liability Defense in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky
Providing sound defense in products liability actions
While most manufacturers go to great lengths to ensure that their products are safe for use or consumption by their customers, products liability claims are still very common, especially in certain industries. Allegations of improper design, poor material and workmanship or failure to provide proper warnings and instructions can all expose manufacturers to substantial liability claims. And while many such claims are based on isolated incidents, others can quickly grow into large class actions or mass tort cases involving tens, hundreds or even thousands of plaintiffs. The experienced defense attorneys at Pullin, Fowler, Flanagan, Brown & Poe have the skills and resources to guide manufacturers through this type of litigation. Our lawyers have successfully managed products liability cases of all types and sizes throughout West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky.
Industries commonly facing products liability claims
No industry is immune to allegations of defective products. Even the most innocuous products are sometimes found to be dangerous in unexpected ways. Certain industries, however, face a much higher risk of liability for defective or dangerous products. Pharmaceutical companies, baby and infant products manufacturers and automotive or heavy equipment companies frequently face liability claims for making products that allegedly expose users to toxic substances. Alleged liability against these and other types of manufacturers can be based upon numerous allegations, including:
- Poor design
- Toxic or tainted materials or ingredients
- Ineffective quality control
- Poor sanitation
- Failure to warn
Regardless of the basis, products liability cases are often exceedingly technical and require substantial input from various industry experts, such as engineers, chemists and medical professionals. Our attorneys work with these distinguished professionals to build compelling cases on behalf of our clients.
