Product Liability

When a defective product either causes an accident or causes injuries that should have been avoidable, the manufacturer may be held legally responsible. Many law firms advertise for these cases, but very few truly have the experience, expertise and resources to effectively handle them. Brackin McGriff & Johnson has an unparalleled track record handing cases involving defective automobiles, but we also have extensive experience handling cases involving all sorts of defective products.

At Brackin McGriff & Johnson there is no doubt we have what it takes.

If you or your client has a potential defect case, experience and results matter.

Baldwin County Product Liability Attorney

Our dedicated trial attorneys represent clients who have been catastrophically injured and those who have lost loved ones in auto accidents as a result of defective products and vehicles. The following are some of the major types of defects we can successfully handle:

  • Tire failure: When tires are poorly designed and manufactured, tread separation and tire blowouts can cause rollovers and other serious accidents and injuries.
  • Air bag defects: Our attorneys are experienced at pursuing claims for injuries caused by air bags that fail and do not go off when they should, air bags that deploy late, and air bags that are too powerful and cause catastrophic injuries.
  • Defective fuel systems: Defectively designed and manufactured fuel systems can turn relatively minor accidents into major ones by sparking post-collision fires. If a person survives a wreck, he or she should not be burned up in a fire.
  • Seat and seat belt defects: When the seats in an automobile are not manufactured to strict crashworthiness standards, they can collapse during a wreck, resulting in serious injuries to those in the seats and to adults and kids sitting behind them.
  • Rollovers and crushed roofs: Whether rollovers are caused by vehicle instability or driver negligence, the injuries involved can drastically increase when roofs crush inward due to design defects.
  • Crashworthiness: Auto manufacturers know their vehicles will be involved in crashes, and they have a responsibility to design their cars to protect drivers and passengers from being unnecessarily injured or killed. That legal principle is called "crashworthiness." We have successfully handled a variety of cases where the structure of the vehicle or some part was not designed and built to effectively protect occupants and be "crashworthy."

Going up against major auto manufacturers is not easy. These companies have major resources at their command and are willing to use those resources to fight injured consumers' claims. You need lawyers on your side who are prepared to take on these powerful corporations.

If an auto manufacturer is responsible for the harm that has been done to you and your family, our firm has the resources, the experience and the reputation to pursue the full justice you deserve. Don't hesitate to contact us to have our attorneys evaluate your case.

Product Liability

Baldwin County Product Liability Attorney

The Baldwin County Attorneys  Brackin McGriff & Johnson have years of experience handling products liability claims against some of the world’s largest manufacturers. A products liability claim generally falls within one of three categories.

The first type of products liability claim is one in which someone is injured due to the defective design or unsafe condition of a product. In a design defect case, the claim is that the product has an inherent flaw in the design itself. The second type of products liability claim is one in which the product is defective due to a manufacturing defect. In a manufacturing defect case, the claim is that the defect has occurred in a small number of particular products due to some problem or mistake in the manufacturing or construction process. The third type of products liability claim is a failure to warn claim. In a failure to warn case, a product is defective because it fails to display or contain the appropriate warnings. If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective product it’s important that you consult with an experienced products liability attorney.

Product liability cases include:

  • Automotive: Defective seat belts and air bags; defective roofs, gas tanks, car doors and seat backs that make a vehicle un-crash worthy; defective tires that can result in blowouts.
  • Children’s products: car seats, strollers, cribs, toys, swings, and playpens.
  • Drugs: Defective drugs such as Vioxx and Celebrex; misfilled prescriptions.
  • Tools: Defective equipment such as saws, mowers, cranes, and forklifts.
  • House hold products: Defective house hold appliances such as electric heaters, alarm clocks, electric blankets, and hot water heaters have been know to cause fires and injuries.

Our Alabama product liability lawyers handle all products liability cases on a contingency fee basis, which means we do not charge you a fee until and unless we make a recovery for you.
