Defective Products

Millions of Americans are injured and thousands are killed each year as a result of defective products. Though the range of defective product cases is broad, the claims typically involve the defective manufacture of a product, defective design of the product, or failure to provide adequate warnings or instructions about using the product properly.

Cunningham Bounds has litigated some of the top-dollar awards in defective products including improperly vented furnaces and water heaters, defective automobiles and pickup trucks, exploding tires and rims, foggy face shields on motorcycle helmets, farm, lawn and garden tractors without adequate rollover protection, jet skis and recreational boats with defective steering mechanisms, defective aircraft engines, improperly designed medical devices, dangerously defective clothes dryer lint vents, electric control panels, uninsulated power lines and negligently designed all-terrain vehicles.

Demonstrating that the manufacturer or other entity was responsible for an individual's death can be extremely difficult to prove. Cunningham Bounds’ lawyers rely on the expert testimony of engineers, doctors, and other professionals who have an exhaustive understanding of product development, medicine and government regulations in order to ensure each of our client's claims has a strong foundation. If you have been injured or suffered other damages because of a product you used, please contact us.
