Sacramento Products Liability Attorneys

Representing People Injured by Dangerous Products

Fingers getting injured from defective productDefectively designed and manufactured products injure, kill, and maim many thousands of people each year. The type of products involved in defective products lawsuits range from small items such as handsaws, to large pieces of manufacturing equipment and automobiles.

In addition, defective medical products, including hip implants and heart stents can cause severe injuries. Further, defective prescription drugs and food products can cause adverse reactions, poisoning and even death. Even mass-produced housing (relative to construction defect cases) can be defective and cause injuries (toxic mold cases caused by water damage).

Responsible parties in a products liability case can be both the designer and manufacturer of the product, as well as each distributor and retailer that came in contact with the product. At Miller Injury Attorneys, we represent plaintiffs injured by dangerous and / or defective products. A product can be defective in many ways, including improper warnings, design defects or manufacturing defects. Headquartered in Central California, our Sacramento products liability lawyers represent clients throughout the state who have been injured by many different types of defective and dangerous products.

If a dangerous item or defective product has injured you or someone you care about, contact Miller Injury Attorneys at (916) 525-7761.

Defective Vehicles & Vehicle Parts.

Many motor vehicle accidents are caused or made worse by tire blowout, defective seat belts, brakes, air bags, or roofs that are not designed to withstand a rollover accident. If someone you care about has been injured or killed in a car or SUV accident, it is a good idea to talk with an attorney about the possibility of a products liability lawsuit.

Dangerous & Defective Machinery.

Dangerous and defective machinery is responsible for many accidents in industrial settings, construction sites, and warehouses. Products liability lawsuits can help hold defendants, including the designer, manufacturer, retailer, and distributor of the product accountable for the harm caused by these accidents.

At Miller Injury Attorneys, we represent people who have suffered life-changing personal injuries such as amputations, burns, and fractures as result of defective and dangerous products. We also represent the surviving families of people killed in accidents in our wrongful death lawsuits.

Products liability lawsuits can relate to many different types of faulty and dangerous machinery including:

  • Stand-up forklifts
  • Presses
  • Industrial equipment
  • Saws
  • Landscaping equipment / transfers and augers

Although workers’ compensation may be your exclusive remedy for on-the-job accidents, you still might have the option of suing the manufacturer of the defective and/or dangerous equipment used in your occupation. The workers’ compensation bar only applies to your employer, not the manufacturer, designer, retailer or distributor of the dangerous and defective product.

Defective Medical Devices & Equipment

Defective Medical Products

The manufacturers of medical devices and equipment and profit greatly from the sale of products of like pacemakers, stents and hip and knee replacements. These manufacturers have a duty to make certain these devices are safe. These companies also have the duty to warn users of the potential risks so doctors and their patients can make informed choices about what devices they rely on.

At Miller Injury Attorneys our Sacramento products liability lawyers are trained to hold manufacturers, designers, distributors and retailers of defective medical equipment accountable for the harm they have caused. At our Central California law firm, we prepare cases for trial from the outset.

Companies have a lot riding on the outcome of a products liability lawsuit and will tenaciously defend any allegations. Although your product liability case may settle before going to trial, our thorough trial preparation helps to protect our clients’ interest. In addition, our reputation for trial readiness also helps settle your case out of court. People depend on medical equipment for their lives and health. When this equipment fails or does not work as intended, the effects can be devastating.

Failed medical devices, like the ones listed below, are responsible for serious injuries to and the wrongful death of many people throughout the United States:

  • Pacemakers
  • Defibrillators
  • Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD)

Rave Reviews from
Happy Clients

  • Even at the most discouraging times, they were always there to listen and offer advice.

    “I have nothing but good things to say about Mr. Miller and his staff. I could not be more satisfied with the outcome of the case that they stood by me with and helped me win. Even at the most discouraging times, they were always there to listen and offer advice, and ensured that I never gave up hope. Thank you to Mr Miller and your wonderful staff! I am so glad that I came to you and your firm to bring a happy ending closure to this case!”

    Shaun C.

  • He referred me to a great doctor and settled my case quickly.

    “I recently hired Mr. Miller in a bad car accident case. He did exactly what he said he would do to help me. He referred me to a great doctor and settled my case quickly. I just loved the fact that he was always available to answer any questions I had. He is wonderful!”

    Joe

  • He was patient, kind and extremely professional.

    “Mr. Miller represented me on a mold case against a former landlord, and management company. He was patient, kind and extremely professional. Although my case wasn't one of the biggie gold mine type cases that many attorneys are looking for, he treated me with respect, collegiality and was able to help me get a settlement through mediation that seemed to be the best option for the quagmire of my particular case. One should always hold negative reviews on here in perspective: often people think their cases are slam-dunks, but as we all know, the legal system is overly complex and not as straight-forward as we all would like it to be. Often cases don't turn out as we'd like them to, but I felt that Mr. Miller was above board regarding the overall merits of my case and he tried to be realistic as to the outcome. I would recommend him and/or avail of his services again.”

    Former Client

  • He took our case when other attorneys walked away.
