Understand Your Legal Options After Being Injured By A Defective Product
When someone buys a product or takes a prescription medication, they expect that the product or drug will be safe. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. If a defective product that you have purchased or borrowed or a medication that was prescribed for your use has harmed you or a family member, then you may have what’s known as a products liability claim against the manufacturer or seller of that product.
Because it is very difficult and expensive to prove that a product is defective, many attorneys are unable to handle such cases. Product liability claims require a great deal of time, effort and expense. These cases must be handled by a lawyer familiar with and experienced in litigating products liability cases, not just general personal injury matters. At Williams & Piatt, LLC, our knowledgeable attorneys have the skills and resources needed to effectively litigate your case and seek full and fair compensation from the at-fault parties.

Our lawyers are committed to representing individuals who have suffered due to this type of negligence. They have litigated product liability cases involving many different kinds of products, including pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices, machine tools, asbestos and mesothelioma cases, and billboard design.

The Dangers Of Defective Drugs And Medical Devices
Pharmaceutical companies have completely changed the health care industry, especially with the creation of effective drugs and medical devices that are readily available for public consumption. Sadly, because these medical products are considered big business, many pharmaceutical companies tend to forego the proper testing or research that is needed to ensure the safety of consumers. There are also incidents when an error happens along the manufacturing chain that leads to the drug or medical device becoming ineffective, dangerous or even deadly.
If you have suffered severe injuries or lost a loved one as a result of a defective drug or medical device, it is important that you speak with an experienced Indianapolis personal injury attorney right away to protect your rights and seek the justice you deserve.
At Williams & Piatt, LLC, our attorneys have seen the many ways that dangerous and defective products, especially defective medical products, can ruin lives. Many of these injuries are preventable and are caused by manufacturer negligence. As such, our legal team is constantly investigating defective products when regulations and guidelines have been broken. If our lawyers can prove that there are enough clients who have been hurt by one product to file a mass tort, then they can work toward recovering damages for you and your family.
Why We Are The Right Choice For You
Our experienced attorneys are here to help you seek legal recourse against the party responsible for the defective product that caused your injuries.
