When Trust Has Been Broken.

Would it be fair to say that we have infinite trust in using the products that we purchase? Without that, we become medieval kings who used to have their food tested before they ate it! Without that trust, we are left to gamble on our health and safety. When that trust is violated by a defective product it may be time to turn to The Ken Wagner Law Firm, located in Albuquerque.

When one refers to product liability it means the branch of the law that deals with the duty of any and all people who manufacture, distribute, or supply the retailers (including them) for injuries or worse that are caused to a consumer of a product that is deemed to be dangerous or in any way defective.

Perhaps, one of the more famous defective product cases was the famous “McDonald’s Hot Coffee” case. If you want to see more about that and who helped win that famous trial, then please visit kenwagnerlaw.com and “read all about it” as the newspaper hawkers used to say. If you suspect a defective product in your life, please call The Ken Wagner Law Firm of Albuquerque at (505) 242-6300.

What Defines Product Liability?

Here is one definition that you need to know before you call The Ken Wagner Law Firm of Albuquerque. One explanation is defined as a manufacturer, retailer, or seller of a particular product who is being held liable for allowing that product to reach the consumer. That’s right…REACH the consumer, let alone use it!

Here is another terrific point. Every party involved in the distribution chain may be found guilty of product liability. That means it is not just the manufacturer itself, but everyone along the way who brought that product into you or a loved one’s hands.

Defective product liability is best unpacked by a strong law firm with years of experience dealing with this subject. Just such a firm in The Great Southwest is The Ken Wagner Law Firm of Albuquerque. If you need a product liability lawyer, please call (505) 242-6300. Talk to someone about your particular situation.
