Liability Attorney Hamilton, Ohio

Mass-production has brought a lot of convenience to our daily lives. Unfortunately, this convenience too often comes at the cost of quality and safety. Tens of millions of people die every year due to product-related injuries. Whether it’s a vehicle, an electronic device, a consumable, or any of the other countless items we use in a day, unsafe products can cause accidents, disease, and even death.

All it takes is a minor oversight, a moment of indifference, or a questionable cost savings decision to cause any of our daily products to become incredibly dangerous. If you or a loved one have been injured or killed by a product due to the negligence of the product’s manufacturer, you need legal representation. At The Richards Firm, we provide legal representation for those filing liability claims against companies that manufacture products that cause harm.

Understanding Product Liability

Companies who design, manufacture, and distribute goods have a responsibility to consumers like us to ensure that their products and services meet established principles of safety and quality. That includes meeting design requirements and passing quality-control testing that ensures no defective, dangerous, or otherwise harmful goods enter the market. Any potential risks must be clearly labeled with warnings that are easy to read and understand.

Liability issues are often misrepresented, with blame being directed towards the victim. This is often due to lobbying and behind-the-scenes influence from the corporations at fault. One of the most infamous examples is a case from the 90s where a woman sued McDonald’s after spilling hot coffee on herself.

What many don’t know is that the woman (who was 79) suffered third degree burns throughout the lower half of her body that required skin grafts, leaving her permanently disfigured and partially paralyzed. This was due to the fact that the coffee served to her was nearly 200 degrees Fahrenheit. To make matters worse, McDonald’s had actually received countless complaints of similar incidents for decades beforehand yet took no action and knowingly continued a dangerous business practice.

When to Speak to a Liability Attorney in Ohio

If you don’t take legal action when you’re injured by a product, not only will you be forced to cover your own medical expenses, but also the company responsible will continue to put people’s lives at risk. Product liability lawsuits exposed the dangers of products like the Ford Pinto, Takata airbags, and Firestone tires, not to mention countless harmful medications.

Time and again, it’s been shown that the companies knew the risks and they ignored the warnings often to increase profits.

If you’ve fallen prey to a faulty product, The Richards Firm is here for you. As your liability attorney in Hamilton, Ohio, we will work tirelessly to identify design or manufacturing defects, as well as failures to warn or instruct you of a product’s intended function, manner of use, or inherent risks. You don’t owe us anything unless you win your case.
