Defective Products may cause injury or death due to faulty design or poor production standards.
Injury or death involving a product may be the result of a defective design, manufacturing defect, or wrongful use instructions that come with the product. Defective products may cause very serious harm or death. If you have been injured or a loved one lost their life due the use of a defective product, contact a personal injury law firm that has extensive experience prosecuting cases against both American and foreign manufacturers.
Bringing successful claims against the entity that manufactured the defective product requires attaining knowledge of the product’s design intricacies, product use, and the predictable human-machine interaction. Terrible injuries occur when products are unsafe. Our clients have suffered brain damage, crushing injures, amputations, and paralysis.
In one instance, we successfully sued a well-known manufacturer of a heating device that was responsible for the deaths of several members of a family. In another, a recreational vehicle made in a foreign country (and sold by a well-known company) caused permanent and disabling injuries. We recognize the grave responsibility required when representing an injured client. Such responsibility requires us to work hard to acquire the information and knowledge necessary to surmount the predictably vigorous defense asserted by domestic and international manufacturers.
Foreign product liability cases pose unique and significant challenges.
Some of the defective product lawsuits filed against foreign entities in U.S. state and federal courts by Campiche Andrews Horne PLLC include a Taiwanese bicycle, a Chinese manufactured ship-to-shore port crane, a foreign manufactured straddle carrier; German and American manufactured automobiles; power cable stringing equipment; a hydraulic crane; and the use instructions created by a manufacturer of chemicals. We earned recoveries for our clients ranging from multi-hundred thousand dollar recoveries to multi-million dollar recoveries.
Acquiring jurisdiction over a solvent entity is just the first step in a lengthy campaign to earn justice for an injured client. Our firm has considerable experience in employing The Hague Convention to obtain jurisdiction over foreign manufacturers. This process, in part, requires the legal complaint to be translated into a foreign language, and service made on a designated national authority for the country involved.
From there, the litigation process begins, and foreign laws complicate litigation. Using claims against Chinese manufactures as an example, Chinese secrecy laws prevent discovery of product manufacturing details. Attorney Phil Arnold’s anticipation of this problem by performing extensive research into Chinese, European, and American design safety standards, proved successful. Phil developed the necessary case information before filing a lawsuit, giving his client the best chance of success without depending upon information from the reluctant foreign manufacturer.
Another case involving a defective product case required travel to Finland to seek a deposition. Finland does not use court reporters, thus requiring a U.S. Federal Court order allowing for an American court reporter to transcribe the deposition. We obtained that court order, allowing us to depose a crucial Finish witness designated by his employer and the manufacturer of the product to testify on their behalf. We successfully resolved the case.
