Areas of Practice

Product Liability and Manufactuer Liability Attorneys

When you buy a product, you have certain rights as a consumer. The most basic is the right not to be injured when using the product and for your family and loved ones to be safe while using the item. Companies have a legal obligation to design, manufacture and distribute safe products to the public. When they fail in this obligation and you or a family member is injured or hurt by a defective product, you should speak with the experienced product liability lawyer at Franks, Kelly, Matuszewich, and Andrle Attorneys at Law.

A defective product can be dangerous and put you and your family at risk of a significant injury. If you have been injured by a defective product you deserve the best legal representation  possible, that is what Franks, Kelly, Matuszewich, and Andrle Attorneys at Law will provide.

You need a product liability lawyer to fight for you to recover the money damages for the injury you or your family suffered from a defective product.  Defective products are usually placed into the market place because the manufacture cut corners  in designing or manufacturing the product all in an effort to increase their profit at the expense of safety.


Product liability law is a broad area of the law that encompasses many different types of issues, claims and damages.

Our defective product lawyers have experience handling cases dealing with:

  • Defective tools
  • Defective drugs
  • Defective vehicles / seat belts
  • Defective electric/electronic products
  • Defective medical devices
  • Defective children’s products and toys
  • Other defective products you purchase for your home

Defective products cases are complicated, and each of the case will have unique features and procedures. You need a product liability attorney with experience to handle a products liability case because manufactures, distributor and re-sellers defend product liability cases aggressively. There are no quick settlements in product liability cases.

Product Liability Attorneys Fighting for You

We can help to determine if a product that injured you was genuinely defective. Product liability cases rely on expert witnesses to prove the product was defective and to prove the product was not miss used, a common defense to a product liability lawsuit. We have access to Hundreds of expert witnesses to review the product that injured you, to determine of the product was designed improperly or if the product was manufactured defectively. An example of a design defect product liability case is where a manufacture did not include a guard where they should have. A manufacture defect is wend a manufacture failed to install a screw that secures a part from flying off and injuring the person using the product.

If you’re unsure of whether you have a claim or not, you can speak with a products liability lawyer at a free, no-obligation initial consultation. We are here to help the injured innocent victims of negligence and misconduct.

Please note that product liability cases are extremely expensive to prosecute, and time consuming, because of the cost of expert witnesses, and the cost of litigation. You or your loved one needs to have significant injuries and damages to make a product liability lawsuit worthwhile to pursue. Not all product liability cases are financially viable.

Compensation Our Product Liability Attorneys Can Pursue

While every case is unique, and the exact compensation available to you is determined by the circumstances of your claim, we can generally pursue compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering, past and in the future
  • Loss of a normal life
  • Emotional distress
  • Funeral expenses (in the case of a wrongful death case)

If you’ve been severely injured by a defective product that was poorly designed or negligently manufacturer you need an experienced defective product lawyer. Make sure you take lots of picture of the picture of the defective product, secure and protect the same. If you lose or misplace the defective product you may lose your case. If you allow someone to secure the product the manufacture will claim you or another person altered the product because you did not have a good chain of custody.
