If you were using any type of consumer product that malfunctioned or was inherently dangerous, and you were injured as a result, you may be entitled to compensation. Product liability laws provide an avenue for consumers to pursue monetary damages for injuries caused by defective or dangerous products. They impose strict liability on manufacturers and other parties involved in the design, production, and distribution of a product. This means that a consumer may not need to prove actual negligence in order to recover compensation.
Product liability laws are complex. Your attorney must have a complete understanding of state and federal product liability laws as well as precedents set by case law in order to effectively protect your right to maximum compensation. Ohio product liability lawyer John A. Lancione has been fighting for injured consumers for three decades. He has the knowledge and experience you need, and our firm has the resources necessary to effectively investigate, negotiate, and litigate product liability matters across the state.

What Is a Defective Product?
A defective product may be defined as a product that has one or more of the following issues:
- A manufacturing defect that makes it faulty or unsafe for use;
- A design defect that renders it inherently unsafe;
- A lack of adequate instructions or warnings for using it; or
- Improper marketing of the product.
