Do I Have a Case?
You may have a product liability claim if you have evidence of manufacturing or design defects or any sign of failure to warn.

However, these cases are much more challenging to prove that the less common manufacturer defect claims. In any case, Sussman & Simcox is on your side in either of these scenarios.
