Defective Products

Fighting insurance companies and big businesses on your behalf

When products are manufactured or designed incorrectly, consumers can be severely injured or, in the worst case, killed.  Product liability cases can extend well beyond the defective product.  If proper warning labels are insufficient or missing; instruction manuals are inaccurate or incorrect, companies are legally responsible for any injury or death that may have occurred.

With decades of experience providing the highest level of personal attention to your needs, the litigation attorneys at O’Connell and Aronowitz are able to obtain compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other costs related to your accident due to product defect(s).

Our lawyers have taken on major corporations and won

The manufacturers of defective products are often large businesses.  They have strong legal teams ready to protect them from the cost of lawsuits and potential damage to their brand.  We obtained a $20 million verdict for our client in a complex product liability case against a corporate giant.  We handle all types product liability cases, including:

  • Auto Defects
  • Truck and Motorcycle Part Defects
  • Toy and Children’s Product Defects
  • Power Tool Defects
  • Factory Machinery Defects

Product Liability and Workers’ Compensation

When an accident in the workplace is the result of defective work equipment or machinery, the injured worker can file a lawsuit against the manufacturer, and may also be able to pursue workers compensation from their employer.

Your product liability case is contingency based. We collect NO FEES unless we recover damages for you.

Pam Nichols was professional, but warm and easy to talk to. She put me at ease, especially when we ran into roadblocks that had to be tackled along the way. We couldn’t have been happier with the outcome and felt that we had the best possible representation!
