Were You Injured By A Defective Product?

Nearly everyone has heard a product recall for items ranging from cars and trucks to medications and processed foods. For many, that's all these incidents are — warnings that pop up and quickly fade from memory. But for those affected by construction, manufacturing or design defects, the consequences can be life-changing.

Just like you, our attorneys at Fitzpatrick, Skemp & Associates, LLC, are consumers who tend to rely on the integrity of the products they use every day. From the car seats we entrust with our children's safety, to the foods we eat, the companies that produce and distribute the products we use have an obligation to consumer safety.

Protecting Yourself And Countless Other Consumers

Manufacturer defects are best thought of as departures from the product's intended design. In most cases, the consequences of the defect were totally unforeseen despite testing and other measures taken by the designer and manufacturer. Although most defects are carefully weeded out, oversights on the part of the manufacturer can be seen as negligence, and thus proof of liability if consumers were injured as a direct result of using the product.

While proving manufacturer and design defects may seem straightforward, the fact is that such matters can be difficult to prove. By working with our experienced lawyers, your chances of successfully proving manufacturer liability improve significantly as opposed to tackling a company and its counsel on your own. Over 100 years of experience, a record of success and the resources necessary to undertake thorough investigations, our firm is well-equipped to handle all types of personal injury and workers' compensation cases.
