Experienced Oklahoma Lawyers Hold Product Makers Accountable
Our Tulsa product liabilty attorneys are here to resolve your case
When you are injured as a result of a faulty product, it’s understandable that you’re angry. The legal team of Stipe, Harper, Laizure, Uselton, Belote, Maxcey & Thetford wants to help you find justice in the courtroom or the negotiating table by ensuring that the product manufacturer, distributor or other parties are held liable.
The basics of products liability cases
Products liability laws were originally created to protect consumers from dangerous and defective products. These laws cover all products, from automobiles to household products to drugs to children’s toys. Recently, three particular products and lawsuits against their manufacturers have received a lot of media attention: Reglan®, Actonel® and DePuy hip implants.
Reglan is generally used to treat intestinal disorders, but recent FDA studies indicate that the drug may cause a condition that forces repeated and involuntary twitches of the extremities. Actonel is used to treat osteoporosis in men and postmenopausal women, but has caused many serious side effects, such as chest pain, jaw pain, heartburn or back pain. DePuy hip implants have been known to degrade early, causing patients to need a second implant far earlier than normal. All of these products are known to be dangerous and defective, and are usually subjects of personal injury lawsuits.
You should consider filing a products liability lawsuit if:
- You have suffered an injury or illness as a result of using a product
- A product does not have adequate warnings about side effects
- A product has caused the wrongful death of a loved one
The products liability attorneys at Stipe, Harper, Laizure, Uselton, Belote, Maxcey & Thetford can help you resolve your case either through a settlement or in the courtroom.
