Consumers have a right to expect that the products they buy will work properly and not pose an unreasonable danger. The experienced attorneys at Dollar, Burns & Becker have represented countless people who’ve been injured from defective products or equipment with inadequate warnings or instructions. Defective products and designs used in automobiles, private planes, helicopters, aviation equipment and medical devices can result in death or catastrophic injuries.
Your family and friends rely on their cars every day to get them safely to and from their destinations and rightfully expect a certain level of protection in the event of a crash. In fact, the term "crashworthiness" refers to the ability of a vehicle to withstand the impact of a crash. Manufacturers can improve a car's crashworthiness through thoughtful and proper design.
Unfortunately, companies sometimes cut corners that put people at risk. We hold manufacturers responsible for badly designed, poorly made, unsafe and defective equipment. Our experienced attorneys know how to prosecute cases caused by tread separation on tires, fuel tank defects, airbags that do not deploy and seat belts that fail to work.
Aviation accidents that result in death or catastrophic injury require specialized knowledge and litigation experience to determine whether a crash was caused by faulty equipment, poor maintenance or pilot error. We work with aviation experts to identify the cause of a crash and the parties responsible. Defective parts or maintenance problems often lead to fatalities and catastrophic injuries. The issues are complex and technical and require an attorney who’s an expert in the field.
If you, a friend or a loved one has been a victim of poorly designed products or equipment, or improper maintenance, contact us as soon as possible, ideally within 48 hours. We’ll immediately take action to ensure that vital evidence is preserved that can be crucial to your claim. Initial consultations are free and we work solely on a contingency basis.
