Product Liability: Defective Product Attorneys

product_liability_defective_product_attorneysMany people throughout Birmingham and the state of Alabama are needlessly injured or killed by defective or dangerous products. Years ago the Ford Motor Company was civilly punished for manufacturing, marketing, and selling the Ford Pinto after Ford allegedly learned that the design of the gas tank was causing deadly fuel-fed fires even at low speeds. Many people are also familiar with the Firestone tire recall, evidencing the extent that some large corporations are willing to go to cover up injuries caused by their defective products. Although these and other cases have garnered some media attention, all too often consumers are unaware exactly how dangerous the products they are using really may be.

At the Birmingham law office of Pittman, Dutton and Hellums, we believe that holding manufacturers legally accountable to their consumers helps to ensure that products are safer for all of us. Based on our experience, we know that protecting consumers does not restrain innovation and it does not prevent a company from achieving legitimate profits. Rather, ensuring that these manufacturers be held legally accountable to people that their products needlessly injure helps create a level playing field and ensures that unscrupulous corporations that put profits over people do not have a competitive advantage over conscientious companies that chose to put safety first.

If you or someone you know has been injured and you think it might be the result of a defective or dangerous product, contact a Birmingham product liability attorney at Pittman, Dutton & Hellums for a free consultation.
