Consumer Products Are Not Always Safe

Thousands of people in Kentucky are injured every year by products that are defectively designed or manufactured. If you have been injured by a defective or dangerous product, the lawyers at Slechter Law Firm can help you receive compensation from the manufacturer, the store that sold the product, or both.

You have many legal avenues you can pursue. Allow us to help you decide the best course of action. We’re fully licensed to practice law in Kentucky, as well as Indiana and Tennessee.

Here are some examples of dangerous products:

  • Defective machines that injure workers
  • Defective drugs that cause injuries and birth defects
  • Defective toys or clothing that injure children
  • Defective recreational products
  • Defective tires, such as tires prone to blowouts and tire tread separation
  • Defective auto parts, such as seat belts and air bags that cause injuries
  • Defectively designed products, such as Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs) and All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) that are prone to rollovers in accidents
  • Defective deer stands, which collapse, causing injury to the hunter.

To prove evidence of liability, it’s important for you to maintain the product in its immediate post-accident state. You have up to one year from the date of your injury to file a product injury claim. Our lawyers are members of both the American Justice Association and the Kentucky Justice Association. Through these information-sharing organizations, we have the capability of determining within minutes if anyone else has been injured by the same product that caused your injury.

How Do I Know If My Injuries Are Serious Enough To File A Claim?

Almost any kind of product can be defective. The nature and severity of the threat posed by a particular defect depends largely upon the product’s intended use.

Don’t delay. If you believe you might have a product liability case, take action. The longer you wait, the harder it might be to mount an effective legal battle. Memories fade. Evidence becomes harder to obtain.
