Consumer Injuries

Manufacturers are responsible for the safety of their products. Defective products can cause injury, illness and even death. At Telpner Peterson Law Firm, LLP, we take action against manufacturers whose products endanger our clients’ health.

Walter P. Thomas handles a broad spectrum of product liability cases such as:

  • Injuries caused by defective farm equipment: Farming machinery with defective brakes, electrical problems or lack of safety panels can result in catastrophic injuries.
  • Injuries caused by defective pesticides: Pesticides serve an important purpose in the farming industry, but when farm workers become ill from a chemical they use to rid their crops of pests, the manufacturer may be at fault.
  • Injuries caused by defective medications: Medications and medical devices are designed to make us healthier, but sometimes manufacturers fail to live up to regulatory standards, leading to illness and injury among consumers.
  • Injuries caused by defective automobiles: Cars with defective air bags or brakes or other issues can cause significant harm.
  • Injuries caused by defective toys: A child’s toy should never cause illness or injury. If your child suffered an injury due to an improperly manufactured toy, we will work to hold the negligent manufacturer accountable.
