Every day across the country and even here in Tennessee, there are adults and children that may purchase or use a product that is dangerous because it may cause medical or other health problems due to some product defect. The product may be defective in its design or manufacture. If you or someone you love has fallen victim to a dangerous or defective product, contact our experienced Tennessee Products Liability Attorneys at The Higgins Firm. We are ready to fight for your case.What is Products Liability Law?
Products liability law compensates victims injured by dangerous and defective products. Products liability law ensures that the parties responsible for causing damage are also responsible for the high costs of injuries resulting from defective products. Designers, manufacturers, and even suppliers of defective products can be required to pay for the injuries to consumers as a result of the defects or hazards in the product. The Higgins Firm lawyers represent Tennessee victims harmed by defective products to earn our clients the awards they deserve from the corporations or manufacturers who sold or manufactured the unsafe products that resulted in a personal injury.What are Some Products that may be Dangerous or Defective?
