If I was seriously injured or a family member had died as a result of someone's negligence, I would want fair compensation without a jury trial, if possible. My lawyer would be very experienced, and I would expect frequent personal contact. My mother needed a lawyer like that when I was a child after corporate negligence killed my father, and that's what I try to provide to my clients.
When you are injured by a poorly designed or poorly made product, or by a product that should have carried a warning label, you may benefit from the services of a defective and dangerous products lawyer. Many drugs, including the arthritis drug Vioxx and diet aids containing Phenylpropanolamine, are considered dangerous products, as are some medical devices (heart defibrillators) and ordinary appliances (space heaters). Asbestos and tobacco are also considered inherently dangerous. A defective and dangerous products lawyer discovers how and why a product was defective, whether insurance policies will pay for your losses, and what you can expect to recover in damages.
