When we purchase products for our families, from automobiles to children’s toys, we expect them to be safe. We assume that the manufacturers, designers and other entities involved have sold us a product that is not defective.
Unfortunately, that is not always the case. In fact, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recalls 200 to 300 products every year for serious safety risks. That’s where product liability law comes into play.
Product liability law (a type of personal injury law) prohibits manufacturers and stores from making and selling defective products. At Ohio-based Abramson & O’Connell, LLC, our product liability lawyers understand how devastating a serious injury can be, especially when that injury was caused by a defective or hazardous product you trusted.
We have handled product liability cases for individuals who were injured by defective or dangerous products such as:
- Motor vehicles
- Industrial equipment
- Household appliances
Types of Serious Injury Caused by Defective/Dangerous Products
Sadly, defective and dangerous products can cause catastrophic injury, including permanent brain injury, spinal cord injury, loss of hearing or sight, burn injury, scarring, and even wrongful death.

- Parent companies of manufacturers
