Koester & Bradley, LLP is working to make manufacturers responsible for the safety of their products. When you go to the store to buy a toy for your child, you do not expect it to become highly dangerous. In the same vein, weight loss supplements and other medications are intended to help you achieve physical fitness goals, not to put you in the hospital because severe liver damage has resulted. Manufacturers of every kind of product warrant that what they sell is safe for its intended purpose. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
Injury or, worse, death, of a person as well as damage to property is often the result of poorly manufactured or poorly designed products. When this happens, the manufacturer is often liable for the damages its product caused. Products liability litigation is how dangerous products are removed from the market and how injured consumers receive civil justice.
The attorneys at Koester & Bradley, LLP have extensive experience in handling products liability cases. We understand how large manufacturers can intimidate consumers and we have the financial resources and the knowledge to deal with the large corporation.
Koester & Bradley, LLP has handled cases regarding:
- Medical devices including: artificial hips and knees, heart valves, temporomandibular joint inserts and orthopedic hardware such as artificial knees, hips and shoulders
