product liability litigation

The American legal system has developed thoughtful and consumer-friendly laws that apply when dangerous products cause injury to persons or property.  It is not necessary to prove that a manufacturer was negligent in making an unsafe product, only that the product turned out to be unreasonably dangerous because of a defect in design or manufacturer or a lack of adequate instructions or warnings.  This area of law is commonly referred to as “strict liability” and HBC lawyers are knowledgeable and experienced in bringing claims against a wide variety of product makers including motor vehicles, household products, bicycles, medical products, pharmaceuticals and tainted food.
