Millions of individuals are injured by defective and dangerous products every year. If you are injured by a defective product, you have the right to seek compensation for your medical bills, damages, pain, and suffering.
Our experienced attorneys are well-versed in the laws that protect consumers against the harm posed by defective products and our strong reputations don’t go unnoticed. At Catania & Catania, P.A., we have a successful history of litigating product liability cases and recovering maximum compensation for our clients.
We represent clients injured by a variety of consumer products, including harmful recalled products, defective medical devices and implants, dangerous drugs, automotive defects and recalls, children’s furniture and toys to name a few.
When a manufacturer becomes aware of a defect in its product, it issues a recall for any items that have the potential to be affected. While such a defect can play a role in your product liability case, the announcement of a recall does not automatically make a manufacturer guilty in a liability case. It is still necessary for your attorney at Catania & Catania to prove other essential elements of product liability.
Defective Medical Devices and Medical Implants
Modern technology has saved countless lives, but some medical devices and implants have also pose serious problems for patients. Some fail to perform properly after surgery despite advanced design and development procedures. This is why Catania & Catania represents clients who have suffered as result of defective medical devices and implants, including hip replacements, pain control devices, breast implants, pacemakers, and many others.
Pharmaceutical companies hold our lives in their hands every single day. We must trust that they uphold rigorous testing, manufacturing, packaging, and marketing standards to ensure that drugs are as safe as possible and only used for their intended purposes. However, prescription and over the counter drugs alike can become dangerous and even deadly when manufacturers fail to take certain precautions.
Catania & Catania represents clients who are victims of drug manufacturers that failed to accurately represent the efficacy of a drug, communicate known risk factors, or purposefully marketed a drug for off label use. Others dangerously altered their manufacturing processes after FDA approval putting the public at increased risk for injury. Drugs like Pradaxa, Xarelto, Invokana, and Lipitor are already involved in cases nationwide!
Automotive Defects and Recalls
Since automotive defects and failures can lead to devastating accidents, vehicle defects and recalls must be taken seriously in liability cases. For example, you may be driving a car sold with tires that are prone to blowouts, an SUV with airbags that did not deploy in an accident, or a motorcycle that “wobbles” when driven at high speeds. These defects put your life and others in danger, which is why Catania & Catania can handle your liability claim and recover the compensation you deserve.
Defective Children’s Furniture and Toys
We expect the products we buy for our children to be safe for them, but sadly that isn’t guaranteed. Dangerous defects in children’s furniture and toys can lead to life-threatening and fatal injuries. Pursuing the manufacturer of defective children’s toys and furniture for liability compensation can help to pay for current and future medical bills, lost earning potential, pain, and suffering.
Dangerous and Defective Consumer Products
From your kitchen table and your kitchen blender to the landscaping tools you use outside, every consumer product in your home is expected to perform safely and appropriately. However, many consumer products are found to have defects in design, manufacturing, or fail to properly to warn the consumer of potential risks. If you are a victim of a dangerous and defective consumer product, such as a space heater that lacks a written warning despite being prone to overheating and causing a fire, you can pursue compensation with the Catania & Catania team by your side.
If you have been injured by a consumer product, it is important that you seek medical attention immediately to ensure your injuries are properly treated. You may be entitled to compensation. A number of parties can be held liable for releasing a product that they knew or should have known posed a risk to users. Speak with our attorneys, who are ready to fight for you and your rights. At Catania & Catania, we put families first.
