Raleigh Product Liability Attorneys

When Defective Products Cause Harm

When a manufacturer, distributor, or corporation produces or sells a product that is defective, innocent consumers can be seriously injured or even killed. Our Raleigh product liability attorneys are committed to righting these wrongs, holding large corporations accountable for their negligence and wrongdoing.

Edwards Kirby won the largest product liability verdict in North Carolina history when our attorneys recovered a $25 million jury award on behalf of Valerie Lakey, a young girl who suffered horrific injuries from a hazardous swimming pool drain. Since then, we have continued to win compensation, by settlement or trial, for victims of dangerous, defective, or poorly designed products.

To find out more about our firm and how we can help you, call (919) 335-7005 to schedule a free case evaluation.

Types of Product Liability Cases We Handle

We represent individual plaintiffs in product liability cases involving household goods, medical devices, automotive components, and countless other products, such as:

  • Defective tires, including tread loss and blowouts
  • Poorly designed child car safety seats, airbags, and other automotive safety components
  • Children’s toys
  • Industrial equipment, machinery, and tools
  • Recreational equipment, such as target arrows, sporting goods, camp stoves, or propane grills

In establishing liability against the manufacturer or distributor of a dangerous or defective product, we use engineering experts and carefully examine the circumstances of the accident to determine whether there is fault involving the design, the manufacturer, or the instructions for the product. In some cases, liability will turn on the adequacy of product warnings and instructions for safe use.
