Any time that you're using or consuming a product, you should have an expectation that the product is safe and will do what it claims. Unfortunately, many products turn out to be defective and will fail in what they're attempting to do or turn out to be hazardous to those that use them. When this occurs and you or your family suffer personal injury, you have grounds for a lawsuit.
At Jeffress Law, our attorney, Christopher W. Jeffress understands how difficult and frustrating it can be for a product to fail and cause you harm. He has been practicing law for 25 years, 7 of which were exclusively devoted to defective product law, so he has the experience you're looking for when approaching a defective product case.

- Tire defects
- Medical devices, including hip and knee implants, defibrillators, pacemakers, power morcellators, and IVC filters
- Dangerous drugs

Who's Responsible for Defective Products?
When you believe that you or a family member were harmed due to a defective product, you may be lost about who is responsible. Jeffress Law knows how to approach these cases and who can be held accountable. In defective product cases, the responsibility can fall on one or all of the following three parties:
- Manufacturer: If a product was improperly or toxically developed, then the manufacturer can be held responsible
- Distributor or assembler: If the product was damaged, infected, or became toxic during assembly or distribution, then those parties may be held responsible
- Marketer: If a product is marketed incorrectly or falsely, then the marketer can be held responsible
- Retailer: If a retailer is aware that something is defective, but sells it anyway, then they can be held responsible
