Nearly all injury cases involve the law of negligence, but product liability law allows claimants to use the law of strict liability. Under the law of strict liability, it’s irrelevant what precautions a manufacturer took when it made a consumer product. As a result, if you've been injured, you must be able to prove that:

Our firm represented the devastated families of a young couple who were prematurely taken from this world as the result of tire and vehicle design and manufacturing defects which abruptly ended their lives. The couple was on their way to obtain a marriage license when their vehicle, without warning, flipped and rolled uncontrollably, crushing the roof and killing the couple.
