Sometimes there may be defects in the design
or manufacturing of a product that cause serious injury
or even death to the consumer.

When we purchase products, we expect them to work properly if used correctly. However, sometimes there may be defects in the design or manufacturing of the product that cause serious injury or even death to the consumer. Most of these injuries could be prevented if additional steps were taken to ensure consumer safety.

The Birmingham, Alabama, law firm of Petway, French & Ford believes that manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, and others who make products should be held legally accountable for the safety of their consumers. Our product liability attorneys have a combined 60 years of experience investigating the circumstances of accidents and meticulously sorting through the evidence. They have handled a wide range of defective products cases, from defective vehicles and auto parts to defective industrial equipment and medical devices. They have fought hard to win significant awards to help their clients recover from their injuries. Because defective product cases can be complex and expensive, you need an attorney with the experience and resources to help you receive the compensation you deserve for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Products liability involves consumers seeking damages for injuries or death caused by defective and unreasonably dangerous products. Defects in products can be categorized as design defects, manufacturing defects, unreasonably dangerous products, or marketing defects. Some common examples of defective and dangerous products include cars, industrial equipment, household appliances, pharmaceutical drugs, and baby products. Alabama law dictates that a product manufacturer or distributor may be liable for the injury or death caused by a defective product.


In all of our personal injury practice areas, the Petway, French & Ford law firm will not charge you anything unless we obtain a recovery on your behalf, either through settlement or jury verdict. One or two partners will be involved in your case, ensuring your case gets the experienced attention it deserves.
