Through product liability lawsuits, lawyers can truly make the world safer. The attorneys of Kurzban Kurzban Weinger Tetzeli & Pratt P.A. are committed to using the legal system to remove dangerous products from the marketplace. We represent individuals and families who have been injured by faulty products, including everything from motor vehicles, breast implants and garage doors to construction materials, heavy machinery, and toxic chemicals.
We believe that a large part of our tremendous success in product liability litigation is due to our policy about hiring consultants and expert witnesses. Our firm's lawyers don't believe that hiring an in-house advisor is a good idea; you can hardly trust such people to give you impartial views. So we enlist engineers that headed major companies. If we have a case that involves a faulty, dangerous automobile, we hire the former head engineers of Ford or GMC. Then our attorneys and consultants go to independent labs in Columbia, Ohio to fully investigate the alleged faults, and come up with firm, solid data that can trump any company's arguments.
Past Litigation Successes
Such practices require an amazing amount of work, but the results are more than worth it. In just one example, we gained a substantial settlement in excess of seven figures against Nissan Corporation. (The amount of the settlement is subject to a confidentiality agreement and cannot be revealed.) Our client was injured in a Nissan automobile due to the negligent design and/or materials used in the construction of the vehicle.
In another case, we gained a $535,000.00 settlement for a Dade County roofer who was injured while applying a new liquid chemical adhesive for use on roofs. Vapors caused by this adhesive damaged the skin and nails of the roofer's hand, caused lung damage, and caused chemical asthma. The adhesive manufacturer failed to give proper warning and failed to advise of the safety equipment needed to use the adhesive. With this success and several others, we became a national leader in the legal field of "Toxic Torts". (Visit our Verdicts & Settlements page for more examples of our firm's success in advocating for our clients.)
