Our Practice Areas
If you’ve been injured by a defective or dangerous product from a company you thought you could trust, Norman & Edem has the experience and strength to help you. Product liability refers to holding a manufacturer or seller liable – or responsible – for placing a dangerous or defective product in the hands of consumers. The laws governing product liability are different than those of general personal injury law, so hiring a firm with experience in the area is key. Each state has their own set of consumer protections that cover negligence, strict liability, and breach of warranty of manufacturers and sellers. Each state has its own laws governing product liability
Norman & Edem has successfully litigated cases against many of the world’s largest product manufacturers, including, General Motors, Chrysler, Tobacco Industry, Remington Arms, Ford Motor Company, Volkswagen, Cessna, Piper, Learjet, Beech, Caterpillar, and others. In each particular case, our position was that the product was defective in design or manufacture.
When a dangerous product defect is present, the manufacturer or seller is and should be held responsible. In certain cases, it is up to the manufacturer to prove that they were not negligent in producing a defective product, in others – strict liability cases – proving negligence is not required, only that the product was defective.
