What is Product Liability?
Product manufacturers, designers, distributors and retailers have a duty to provide reasonably safe products. When defective products cause injuries, it is important that product manufacturers be held responsible for their actions. Attorneys with Linville Johnson are prepared to take on big corporations and pursue compensation on behalf of those injured by unsafe and defective products.
A product liability attorney affiliated with Linville Johnson can represent those who have been injured due to defective product design, defective manufacturing, inadequate labeling and product warnings, misuse by a third party, recalls, and other factors.
Common Product Liability Claims
Defective Consumer Products
If a defective product causes injury, the manufacturer can be held liable for those injuries, regardless of whether the product has been recalled. At Linville Johnson, we represent clients in various types of product liability cases, including:
- Consumer products including food, clothing, makeup
- Drug and medical devices
- Automobiles and other motorized vehicles
- Construction equipment
- Household products
- Children’s toys
- Exercise equipment
- Toxic exposure
If you are exposed to toxic substances resulting from negligence or defective equipment, you may be eligible to pursue compensation for your injuries. Exposure to toxic substances can cause permanent damage and disability so it is imperative to speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
Defective Drugs and Medical Devices

If you were sold defective medical devices or took prescription and over-the-counter drugs that were later recalled, contact a product liability attorney in Arkansas today.

How a Product Liability Attorney Can Help
At Linville Johnson, our experienced and affiliated attorneys can:

Product makers have a duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their products, they also must provide adequate warnings. If a product maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.
