Product Liability

Innocent people are injured and killed by defective products every single day.  We live in a consumer-based society where the list of potentially deadly products expands by the hour.

Cunningham Bounds has successfully handled hundreds of wrongful death and catastrophic injury cases that involved a defective or dangerously designed product. Our attorneys have experience in handing injury and death cases involving a broad variety of products, including: improperly vented furnaces and water heaters; dangerously designed meat saws; unsafe office equipment; 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, such as pacemakers, ventilators, monitors, orthopedic appliances and the like; dangerously defective clothes dryer lint vents, electric control panels and electrical reclosers; uninsulated power lines; negligently designed all-terrain vehicles; unsafe industrial equipment; and more. We help ensure manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers who expose the public to dangerous products are held responsible for the damage those products cause.

Proving product liability requires consultations with engineers and experts who understand the details of how a product is designed. Adding to the complexity of product liability case is the probability that multiple parties - including the manufacturer, distributor, retailer and others in the supply chain – will be involved. This means it may not always be clear-cut as to who is responsible for the injuries.

At Cunningham Bounds, we have successfully represented victims in all kinds of product liability cases, and our track record of success is no accident. We have the experience, the know-how, and the resources to navigate even the most complex product case.  We also have the ability to retain highly qualified experts to help prove your case.  If you or a loved one have been injured or killed due to a defective product, let us help you.
