As a consumer society, we expect the products and machinery we use to improve our day-to-day experiences — not harm us. Unfortunately, we have had to assist many clients in fighting against manufacturers and corporations that failed to provide adequate testing for their products and instead produced unsafe and defective devices that injured innocent people.

We should be able to reasonably expect everyday products and equipment to be safe and effective rather than cause serious injuries. If you were hurt by a defective, recalled, or otherwise unsafe product, our product liability lawyers at The Ruth Law Team can assist you. We will help determine the manufacturer or corporation liable for your injuries and assist you in making a claim. For more information, call us at (888) 783-8378, or fill out our Free Case Evaluation form.
