Arkansas Products Liability Attorney
We all expect that the products we use are going to be safe and not cause harm to us, both in the short term and on the long term. When we purchase something we don’t expect that we’re bringing something dangerous into our homes. After all, that’s what consumer protections are for. Unfortunately, there are many dangerous, defective products in the marketplace and thousands of people are hurt every year by these defective products that cause injury.
If you or a loved one was injured by a defective product or if your relative was killed by a defective product, you may have a product liability case against the companies involved in producing the product. Often times it isn’t just you or your loved one who was been affected. Your work with your attorney to bring the injury to the attention of the public through a claim can help raise awareness and prevent future harm from happening to others. Product liability cases can be filed when you or a loved one was killed, injured, or severely harmed after using a product. A product liability lawyer may be able to help you make your claim against the parties involved in making, marketing or selling the product.
Common Product Liability Cases
Were you injured or loved one killed by a product?
Without a doubt, you’ve heard or read about a defective product or product that hurt or killed people and you steered clear of making the same purchase yourself. You may have heard about the dangers of a certain product through a recall or news story. Most often we hear about particular products that cause injury or death, but there are many different products that we don’t hear about that can cause injury because of defective manufacturing or other issues.
Generally there are four types of product liability claims:
- Defectively Manufactured Products
- Defectively Designed Products
- Failure to Provide Adequate Warnings or Instructions
- False Product Claims or Advertising
At Emerson Scott, LLP, we work with clients in any of these three categories, especially cases involving medical devices and medications. Currently, we are working with a client on an allegedly defective bolt cutter case resulting in blindness. We also work with consumers to fight against false advertising and labeling claims used to dupe people into purchasing products or a false sense of security to intentionally sell more products.

Product Liability Lawyers Holding Those at Fault Accountable
Were you a victim of product injuries?
Product injury claims are different than other kinds of legal claims because they can often affect thousands of other individuals. Speaking with an experienced product liability attorney can help you understand the unique needs of your case and if your case should help defend the rights of other consumers who also purchased the product.
Regardless of whether your case is better suited to a class action or an individual case, building a successful case requires proving the product purchase, the injury and any other information necessary to prove the product caused the injury. This can often mean having to dig through a paper trail, taking legal actions to get information or hiring experts to help get the facts of the case. A product liability lawyer may be able to help you make your claim.
