Danville Consumer Protection Attorney
The most basic form of consumer protection we have in the United States is product liability law. These laws protect consumers by making the designers, manufacturers and/or sellers of hazardous household products legally responsible for injuries caused by using a product that was improperly designed, negligently manufactured or sold without proper warnings.
Household products must contain accurate and comprehensive warnings about injuries that may occur through the proper or improper use of a product. If a product does not contain these warnings, and an injury occurs, the designer or manufacturer of the product may be legally responsible for the injuries, even if the product was being used in a way in which it was not intended. For example, if you were using a weed trimmer (designed to trim weeds from the edges of your yard or garden) to trim your hedges instead and it “kicked back” and injured you, the manufacturer of that product may be liable for your injuries.

Successful Settlement: Automobile Roof Collapse
We represented a client who suffered partial paralysis and a spinal column injury after his car collided with a horse, causing the roof to collapse. Before he came to us for assistance, the client had approached other law firms who had rejected his case.
Fortunately for the client, we took his case and successfully argued that the car’s roof was negligently designed.
