Dangerous Product Attorney in St. Petersburg
The sheer number of products we use on a day-to-day basis is staggering.
From everyday items of utility to sophisticated computing machines or
hi-tech drugs, our lives are filled with a variety of products and items.
Products are assembled from parts made in 20 different countries by a
multitude of manufacturers with many different standards of safety and
quality assurance. It becomes a labyrinth of confusion trying to ensure
that those items used by our families, friends and children are safe.
The toys our children play with in some cases were later found to have
contained lead and other toxic chemicals. Even pet food has been found
to contain unacceptable and undisclosed chemicals. We have relied upon
government laws and inspectors to provide protection against dangerous
and defective products, but in many cases the danger has only been discovered
after the damage has been done. The responsibility lies with the manufacturers
and providers of the goods we purchase and consume. When they fail to
provide safe products, innocent victims suffer the consequences. One powerful
remedy is to pursue compensation against the manufacturer and others in
the production and distribution channels. This is best done with the help of a
St. Petersburg personal injury lawyer.
LeavenLaw is committed to seeking fair and just compensation for those
harmed by dangerous products in
personal injury civil actions. It is the responsibility of manufacturers, designers and
resellers to see that their products are safe, that proper warnings are
clearly given, that design flaws do not create dangerous potentialities
and that products function as intended.

drug or their child could be damaged.
