Product Liability Lawyers
Injured by a commercial product? Call our firm today.
When a commercial product is purchased by a consumer, it is expected that
it will function correctly, and will not be dangerous or deadly when used
per the instructions and warnings. Unfortunately, products of any type
can be manufactured incorrectly, have inherent design flaws, or have dangers
that are not evident until many people suffer the consequences and the
product is then pulled off the market. At our firm,
we have a combined 50 years of litigation experience, and we would like to speak with you about your products liability case.
Recently, we represented a client who was a passenger in pickup truck.
The truck suddenly experienced tread separation in the left rear tire.
The unexpected tread separation caused the vehicle to pull in the direction
of the failed tire. This caused the truck to overturn. The driver died
in the accident and the client survived. Team Madrid immediately investigated
the history of the tire, the manufacturer of the tire, the litigation
history of that particular tire and the pending actions against the tire
manufacturer across the country. After a lawsuit was filed and the parties
engaged in pretrial discovery, the tire company opted to attend a mediation
Result: Case Settled.
Team Madrid represented an individual who was assigned to work removing
plastic by palming off excess wrap around plastic from the tempering roll
of a bubble station of a bubble line machine at a temperature of 450 degrees
Fahrenheit. The client's glove was caught in the roller and severely
burned and crushed client's hand. In an effort to extricate his injured
hand with his other hand, his other hand was also caught, crushed and
burned. Team Madrid proceeded to Toronto, Canada to depose all the engineers
who designed, manufactured and installed the machine. The end result was
that they failed to install the machine with the appropriate safety pull
cords that would deactivate the machine in an emergency. The carrier for
the manufacturer immediately set up a mediation conference.
Result: Case Settled for Seven Figures.
