When we purchase products, we expect them to be well-designed and properly made. This is particularly true of larger or potentially harmful products. However, this is not always the case. When someone is injured by defective products it could be frustrating and even confusing. Defective products can result in catastrophic personal injuries or the wrongful death of an innocent person. While you may be able to file a claim with the company over a defective product, the company and its insurance company will minimize your claim and shift the blame for your injuries onto you. This is not acceptable.
At Schlacter Law, we understand that innocent people harmed by a defective product deserve proper representation. We will not let manufacturers, suppliers, or retailers, who are making significant money off a dangerous product, get away with not paying you the compensation you deserve. We have recovered millions of dollars for our clients, including $2,076,758, $1,625,0000, $825,000, $800,000, $790,000 and $775,000 in major personal injury accidents. We offer a FREE consultation and, if we accept your case, we will aggressively pursue your case, which may include hiring industry-leading professionals and experts. There is no risk to ask for our help because we only get paid when we recover compensation for you.

Three Types of Defects We Handle
Personal injuries caused by defective products fall into three categories:
Manufacturing Defects – These are errors caused by the way that the product was made or manufactured, but not necessarily how the product was designed to have been made. Said differently, the way that product was made is defective, not the way the product is designed or intended to be made. This means that the manufacturer who put together the product is most likely the liable party.
Design Defects – These are errors caused by the design of the product. This means that the product, as intended to be designed, is defective or dangerous in some way. Even if the product is manufactured exactly how it was intended, the product would still be defective and dangerous.
Failure to Warn – A manufacturer could be liable for failing to warn a consumer about a product’s potential risks. This means products need to have warning labels, tags, or signs that indicate how it could pose a risk to users.

Frequently Asked Questions
Four years from the date of injury, or two years if the defective product caused a wrongful death. These time periods may be extended or shortened under the law, therefore making it imperative to ask an experienced defective products lawyer for help.
Defective products lawyers take cases on a contingency fee agreement. This means that a victim of a defective products case will only have to pay a lawyer the percentage of what the lawyer recovers for the victim in a settlement or award.
