Product Liability

Haggard Law Firm > Product Liability

Products liability litigation represents consumers’ first line of defense against injuries caused by defective products. Tens and thousands of Americans are injured each year as a result of negligently designed or defectively manufactured products.


The Haggard Law Firm has always been committed to representing innocent victims involved in product-related accidents. We have represented clients injured by pool pumps, defective tires, football helmets, shoulder pads, beverage bottles, food products and orthopedic bone implants.


Products liability litigation deters businesses and corporations from putting dangerous products into consumers’ hands. In many ways, such litigation works better than government regulatory and study groups to quickly remove dangerous products from the marketplace, and compel redesign in compliance with stricter safety standards.
