The law of products liability

The manufacturer and distributor of any consumer product have a duty to ensure its safety for public consumption. If you were injured by a product because it had a design flaw, a manufacturing defect, or an insufficient warning about a potential risk associated with the product, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Recoverable damages may include medical costs, lost wages and earning capacity, disfigurement, disability and pain and suffering. In some cases, such as where the seller of the product knew it was dangerous and defective but maliciously failed to take sufficient steps to protect consumers, punitive damages may be awarded. An experienced products liability attorney can evaluate your case and help you understand your options.

At The Drakulich Firm, we have significant expertise in representing injured plaintiffs in lawsuits against product manufacturers and distributors.  irm principal Nicholas J.

Mr. Drakulich and his co-counsel obtained the only known successful plaintiff's products liability verdict in the history of Medtronic – a company that has historically been involved in considerable litigation over their medical devices. A small sampling of the types of cases The Drakulich Firm has successfully handled include:

  • A family's action for the death of their father caused by a defective heart valve
