Defective Product Attorneys in Columbus, Ohio

Our Columbus defective products attorneys know that no one expects to be injured while properly using household products, medical devices, prescriptions, or other consumer goods.

Unfortunately, no shortage of defective products finds its way to Ohio consumers. Last year, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued nearly 250 product recalls for defective consumer products. In addition, as medical devices and products continue to evolve, new products enter the marketplace each year. These devices are essential for many people to help them manage chronic conditions or overcome physical limitations. Because they are so important, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulates them and will remove any defective ones.

Our law firm founder and managing attorney, Jami S. Oliver, has been voted 2024 Lawyer of the Year in Columbus, Ohio, for Product Liability and named to the Best Lawyers 2024 list in multiple practice areas. Allow our skilled team, led by one of Ohio’s best, to review your personal injury or wrongful death claim during a free consultation today so you can start making informed decisions about your case and future.

Experienced Defective Product Attorneys in Columbus, Ohio

Sadly, thousands of people die each year from defective medical devices, and many more suffer serious injuries. If you believe a device or product has harmed you, contact Oliver Law Office today. Our defective product lawyers will listen to your story and offer an initial claim assessment. Attorney Jami Oliver and the Oliver Law Office team can assist anyone hurt by a defective device or product.

Since 2000, our defective product lawyers have represented injury victims and families who have lost their loved ones throughout the state because we know how difficult it is to hold a manufacturer liable for designing, producing, and selling faulty products.
Oliver Law Office has extensive experience with the following:
Non-medical devices that are often recalled as defective consumer products may include, but are not limited to:
  • Beauty Products.
  • Carpentry Equipment.
  • Cellphones.
  • Electrical Equipment and Outlets.
  • Electrical Safety Devices.
  • Fans.
  • Hand and Power Tools.
  • Heating Pads and Other Personal Heating Devices.
  • Household Chemicals.
  • Ladders.
  • Laptops.
  • Lithium-ion batteries.
  • Scooters
  • Smoke Detectors.
  • Vehicle Jacks.
  • Water Heaters.
Many lawsuits based on dangerous devices or products are considered class actions, where multiple people join their claims. Class actions help those with similar claims efficiently get their lawsuits. Multidistrict litigation (MDL) also centralizes these cases in one federal court.
Oliver Law Office can help our clients join an MDL or ongoing class action. We can also file an initial lawsuit if that is more appropriate. There are many considerations, such as the type and extent of your injury and the location of evidence. We can clarify all the requirements for you and your family during an initial consultation. Contact our defective product attorneys in Columbus today to learn more.

Defective Household Appliances and Fire Injuries

While you would like to feel safe purchasing the brands you trust for your household, there are unfortunate circumstances that may entitle you to compensation from several parties. Bringing a defective product into your family home can feel like a violation of trust and privacy. We understand that faulty appliances can disrupt your life and even cause serious injuries, like burns. Our experienced product liability attorneys have experience dealing with defective household appliances and fight for the justice you deserve.

Household appliances are supposed to make our lives easier, not put us at risk. Do you think a defective product has injured you? Here are some common examples:

  • Refrigerators: Faulty defrost systems can lead to leaks and electrical issues. Freezer malfunction could cause food spoilage and potential foodborne illness.
  • Dryers: Improper ventilation or malfunctioning heating elements can create fire hazards.
  • Ovens and Stoves: Gas leaks or faulty electrical components can cause fires and explosions, and shattering glass oven doors can cause burns.
  • Toasters and Microwaves: Electrical malfunctions can lead to fires and shocks.
  • Space Heaters: Tipping hazards or malfunctioning thermostats can lead to fires.
  • Carbon Monoxide Detectors: Defective detectors may fail to warn of dangerous carbon monoxide levels, potentially leading to poisoning.

This is not an exhaustive list. In reality – any household product can be potentially defective and cause harm if not designed, manufactured, or labeled correctly. Burns are more common in product liability lawsuits, as products have electrical currents, flammable materials, or can cause explosions. Burns are horrendous injuries that have consequences for years to come. Accidents caused by fire can also destroy property, cause serious injuries, and even lead to traffic loss of life. While we feel like the brands we trust will never have an issue, defective products are a real danger. If you’ve been injured, we are committed to helping you hold manufacturers accountable for their faulty products.

We stay abreast of the most recent recalls and work with many expert witnesses who help us identify when a product is dangerous. New products get pulled constantly, and the manufacturer or government never recalls some dangerous products. Contact us today to learn more.

Why Do I Need a Defective Products Attorney to Handle My Claim?

Like most injury cases, those who are hurt may believe their injuries – and the source that caused them – speak for themselves. So, why would they need an experienced defective products attorney to take the lead in their claim?
Taking on the government or a giant corporation is a tall task. Pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers have some of the largest NYC or Chicago law firms representing them. You need a seasoned advocate who can push for fair compensation. That is why we are here.
We assist our clients with every aspect of their defective products claim, including:
We are here to protect your rights and interests throughout the legal process and will advise you on the best course of action and ensure that you are treated fairly. Contact us today to learn more.
