Even a mild bout of food poisoning causes miserable symptoms. More severe episodes can permanently — sometimes fatally — damage organs. Seniors, children and individuals with compromised immune systems are most at risk of contracting debilitating and deadly foodborne illnesses because their bodies cannot fight harmful bacteria and parasites. Our lawyer traces the origins of your illness to the grocery store, restaurant, manufacturer, processing plant or farm responsible for the contamination.
Typically, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not issue a warning or recall a medication until several patients have suffered serious or fatal injuries. This means that an unsafe pharmaceutical may remain on the market for many years and cause harm to numerous patients. Proving damages for your adverse reaction to a dangerous medication requires the level of products liability and medical malpractice knowledge possessed by the Guirl Law Firm.
Under the concept of an implied warranty, manufacturers guarantee the safety of their products by virtue of selling them to consumers. Because of this implied warranty concept, you often do not think twice about using such common products as lawnmowers, paints, hairdryers, soaps, toaster ovens, blenders, baby strollers, playpens, bookshelves, television sets, household cleansers and other everyday items. We help you recover for injuries caused by furniture, appliances, equipment, toiletries and home supplies.
You likely step on elevators and escalators regularly without ever considering the potential risks. Nonetheless, these complex mechanical devices can easily malfunction because of disrepair or mechanics’ mistakes. If you were injured while riding an elevator or an escalator, you may have a products liability claim against the manufacturer of a defective part or a premises liability claim against the building owners.
