Product Liability

Hinkle Law Firm LLC handles product liability cases involving all types of consumer and industrial products, in addition, we handle cases concerning construction products and commercial manufacturing equipment.

Our representation ranges from start-ups to large, publicly traded clients. Our litigation attorneys have defended claims against self-insured manufacturers and third-party insurance holders, designers, sellers, retailers, and service providers in more than 35 states throughout the United States. They have even defended high-profile cases such as the successful defense of Weider Nutrition International, Inc., in Garrett v. Weider. This product liability case involved a dietary supplement manufactured by Weider known as “Ripped Force,” which contained ephedra. Garrett was only the second case involving the manufacture of a dietary supplement containing ephedra to reach trial in the United States and the first successful verdict for a manufacturer of such a product.

Product liability cases are often complex, requiring the assistance of experts, in addition to their testimony. Our attorneys are well experienced in developing strategies and exploring all possible defense options. Furthermore, Hinkle attorneys have experience conducting risk assessments and advising clients on preventative actions that can reduce the risk of liability while considering the client’s business objectives.
