Chattanooga Products Liability Lawyers

Tennessee Products liability laws give compensation to those people who have injuries due to items that that have a design flaw, manufacturing defects or fail to warn the consumer of known dangers. This area of the law requires those people that design, produce or supply the unsafe items be required to compensate any injury to people that use  the products for any flaws or dangers caused by or found in the items that they market. The purpose of products liability law is to make sure that the parties that caused the damage by placing the products on the market cover the high costs of injuries resulting from defective products. Our legal team at the Higgins Firm fight on behalf of local residents that have sustained injuries caused by product defects to make sure they receive the compensation they are entitled to from businesses and producers that profited from or made the dangerous product.
