Anytime that you use a product, consume something, or drive anywhere, you are placing your trust in the manufacturers of that product to give you something that is safe and high-quality. However, the reality is that there are hundreds, even thousands, of products that were produced, manufactured, or marketed improperly which can be harmful.
There are necessary steps that a manufacturer must follow and guidelines set by the government that is meant to ensure your safety. When a company bypasses these guidelines or realizes they’ve made a product that isn’t safe but sells it anyway, they can be found liable for any suffering, injuries, or illness that you or a family member have experienced.

What Are Defective Products?
A defective product is anything that was accidentally or purposefully manufactured and marketed without following the required guidelines set forth by the government. At Shelnutt & Varner, our attorneys will help you and your family members determine if you’ve not been protected from any of the following:
- Vehicle Defects
- GM recall
- Tire Defects
- Airbag Defects, Including The Takata airbag recall
- Medical Devices, Like Hip Implants, Defibrillators, Pacemakers, and Power Morcellators
- Dangerous Drugs That Caused Pharmaceutical Injury
- Defective Toys
- Contaminated and Recalled Foods
- Baby or Children’s Products, Including Cribs, Car Seats, High Chairs, and Teething Rings
- Playground Equipment
- Toxic Chemicals
These products are causing horrible consequences to those that are affected by them. Automobile and dangerous drug recalls can cause severe injuries, illnesses, and wrongful death. Other recalls may cause mild injuries or discomfort but are still something that you can pursue a lawsuit for.
Holding Wrongdoers Responsible
Our attorneys can help you determine who you should file a lawsuit against and whether or not you’ll have a good chance at a successful case. If you suffered because of faulty manufacturing, then you’ll want to sue the producers of the product that caused you the problem. However, if your product was made properly, but the marketing was falsified or the product was changed or contaminated upon shipment, then you’ll need to file your lawsuit against a different company.
At Shelnutt & Varner, our attorneys have decades of experience with defective product lawsuits. We will evaluate your case for free and guide you through the entire process. We don’t charge our fees upfront and don’t collect our fees or reimburse ourselves for our investigation until we’ve won an award or a settlement for you.
