Products Liability Team

McEldrew Purtell’s Products Liability Team is dedicated to investigating current product recalls, legal updates, and ongoing lawsuits.

The chain of responsibility that follows dangerous and defective products from the market to the end user is complicated and slippery, and often counter-intuitive. But the U.S. has robust laws to protect consumer rights in all the ways they can be trampled.

Our team of trial lawyers have the tools necessary for unlocking the investigation and holding all responsible parties accountable to the fullest extent. Our fight does not stop there – our firm is dedicated to advocating for necessary changes towards effective regulatory and safety measures to prevent further injuries.
