If you suspect that you have been injured as a result of a defective or dangerous product, we are here to help you. At The Ruth Law Team, we understand that the negligence of a manufacturer or corporation who failed to provide adequate testing for their product may have resulted in physical and mental trauma. Speak with a trusted dangerous products attorney who has the knowledge, experience, and empathy to fight on your behalf. 

We should be able to reasonably expect everyday products and equipment to be safe and effective rather than cause serious injuries. Unfortunately, thousands of people are still injured every year as a result. You are not alone. 

Our team of experienced dangerous products attorneys have more than 40 years of handling similar cases and will work with you to obtain the compensation you deserve to help you get your life back. 

To speak with a dangerous products attorney in your area, please contact The Ruth Law Team by either calling (888) 783-8378 or scheduling a free case evaluation(opens in a new tab) for a no-cost and no-obligation case review.
