area of manufacturers' products liability covers a broad
spectrum. Members of our firm have been involved in litigation
involving defective products, from equipment for manufacturing
paper products and milling equipment, riding lawnmowers,
automobiles, to medical devices, and defective drugs.
Claims may arise out of
design, manufacture, packaging, labeling, as well as engineering
When a claim arises from
a personal injury or damages to other property due to a
product defect, we immediately examine the product and,
if feasible, purchase an exemplar product to determine
if the product in question is fit for the ordinary purpose
for which such products are intended or may reasonably
be expected to be used.
In the area of drug and medical device product liability,
immediate investigation is undertaken into how drug and
device manufacturers impart product information to prescribing
physicians and consumers.
The use of available online
resources provides immediate access to National Highway
Transportation Safety Board, and the Federal Motor Vehicle
Safety Standards information for automobile and truck litigation
Additionally, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, National
Institutes of Health, and Center for Disease Control and
Prevention provide valuable resources in drug and medical
device products liability litigation.
At Smiling, Smiling & Burgess, we specialize in getting the job done fairly, honestly,
and credibly. You can count on that promise.
