Manufacturing, design and marketing defects result in numerous injuries to people every year. Companies owe a duty of care to consumers to provide products that meet their customer’s ordinary expectations. If a company sells a product that has a defect, and that defect causes an injury, they may be held civilly liable through a products liability personal injury civil lawsuit.
When a person has been injured by a product in Poteau, they should contact a Poteau Product Liability Attorney as soon as possible following it.
