DEFECTIVE PRODUCT CASE EXAMPLE

Click here to read a good example of a defective product case.

The case above regards a defective skeet throwing machine, that sliced open the right hand of one of our past clients — a right-handed neurosurgeon. When this machine was first manufactured in France, it had a glitch in it’s operating mechanism.  The glitch caused the firing arm to unexpectedly release a target without being triggered by an operator.  At the time of the accident, my client assumed he had been injured because the salesman demonstrating the machine at a national skeet tournament in Phoenix had powered-up it up while on display.  But after talking with the salesman, it was apparent there may have been a problem with the machine itself.  After many months of discovery and heated litigation — including multiple hearings and motions to compel — we learned of the manufacturing defect. Due in part to our lawsuit, the manufacturer notified machine owners worldwide of the problem which may have saved others from serious injury.

WHAT DOES A DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS ATTORNEY DO?

Defective product claims are also referred to as “product liability” claims.  These types of cases are different than car wrecks or slip-and-fall accidents, which are some the most common cases that personal injury lawyers handle.  In a defective product case it helps for a lawyer to have experience in this field.  Often times, these cases require extensive research and discovery.  A law firm needs to be able to finance such a case by hiring experts, paying for reports, and traveling to take depositions. Fortunately, our firm is in a position to handle defective product cases and we have the experience and know-how these claims require.

If you suspect you have have been injured by a defective product, feel free to call us at (720) 805-1193 to discuss whether you have a claim.

CHRIS’S APPROACH TO DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS

Like most cases, a defective product case begins with collecting evidence.  An additional and critical step concerns early research.  Defective product claims are sometimes well publicized and discussed on the internet.  At other times a defect may not be well known to the public but is being discussed among lawyers who handle these types of cases.  Other times it is necessary to do original research which can include reviewing United States and International patent applications, reading industry standards and hiring engineers to test the product in question.  Aside from these unique factors, the prosecution of a defective product claim includes written discovery, the production of documents, and deposing witnesses.

It is difficult to summarize how a defective products case will be handled since each case is unique.  In the example above you can read about a defective skeet machine, however, in another case Chris Parks was liaison and co-lead counsel in a federal multi-district litigation case involving the Norplant Contraceptive Device.  These cases all concerned a contraceptive which the plaintiff’s alleged was defective. The Norplant Litigation required extensive document discovery including a national document depository containing a warehouse full of paper that had to be reviewed by experienced lawyers one document at a time.  It also required members of the steering committee, of which Chris was one, to attend meetings throughout the country and to speak to other lawyers about how the claims were being handled.   Again, each defective product case is different, so we can not summarize what may be required in your case.  Your best guide will be an attorney with extensive experience in this field.

This firm got me WAY more money than I was expecting for my personal injury settlement! And best, of all, I didn't have to lift a finger. I worked with Geri. She made the whole process super smooth and easy. Dealing with lawyers can be intimidating but Geri was very friendly and human. She checked in with me regularly about how I was doing and really cared. In the end, I was able to get on with my life while the settlement was in process without having to worry because I knew they were working hard for me. Chris Parks Attorney at Law really had my back!

Chris and Geraldine are a wonderful team. They provided me with reliable, honest advice about the severity of my case and equipped me with resources that I would have never known about without their guidance. You are in good hands with them. A family friend from a different state encouraged me to reach out to them, so their reputation is solid around the country.

I can't explain what a terrific job Chris, and especially Geri, did helping us get a fair amount for a traffic accident. I had messed around waiting on another lawyer in Lafayette with very little results. Chris took over and put Geri on it -- Geri, the bulldog! She was fabulous in working with us and got a very fair amount finally in settlement for my injuries and situations around the car accident. Thanks so much to you both (but especially Geri!)

I am a lawyer but I know very little about personal injury law. When I have a question, I always call Chris. He is easy to talk to, he can summarize the law in a way that is understandable and he is an excellent advisor. I have worked with Chris on a number of cases and I highly recommend him. He takes the time to get to know each client fully represents them. Once he takes on a client he gets great results through hard work and perseverance.

As an Insurance Adjuster dealing with Bodily Injury claims, I thought I was well equipped to handle my own auto accident. But after not being able to get the Insurance Company to budge on their Low offers. I called an old friend of mine, Chris Parks. I knew my claim warranted a lot more and was frustrated and stressed. Not only did he get a lot better settlement, I have received my check before Christmas! Thank you Chris Parks.

So you should know that Chris was my lawyer first, but he has since become a close friend. Anyway here is my story: I was injured in an industrial accident that changed my life. One minute I'm water skiing, hunting and fishing on the weekends and working for the man. The next thing I know I'm being airlifted to the burn unit. My whole life changed in an instant when I got torched at work -- literally torched. My wife was at home and at the hospital worried sick and wondering if I would survive. After I finally stabilized, she had no idea how to pay the bills. The lawyers she hired were telling us all the reasons we had no case while I'm mostly unconscious and unable to help. This went on for weeks until we found Chris Parks. The first time I spoke face to face with him Chris told me, "We're married and we are going to win this together." I still chuckle every time I think of him saying that, we're married! But, he really meant it and I kid you not, in six months everything had changed. We had a court date, the other side was asking to have a settlement conference and my wife and I had hope. Then he really poured it on. Chris refused to allow a continuance of our case, he took one deposition after another, but he did agree to a settlement conference. At the conference he showed a video he had professionally made to a room full of suits and insurance adjusters. It was so disturbing that one seasoned adjuster ran out of the room and never returned. We settled our case that day, for more than I had dared to dream of, but more importantly we did it as a structured settlement, which meant I got a stream of income for life that increases every year. Chris even split that up between two of the biggest insurance companies in the country, just in case one went under! There are a hundred other details of how Chris handled my case that I have told people about, but only one is important for this review. Chris is a fantastic lawyer. He's not afraid of any company or any defendant and he always does exactly what he says he will do. Like I said when I started this review, Chris has since become a very close friend and for good reason, he's great at what he does and he's a fine fella. --JS.

I was injured at work and had questions about how my workers' compensation claim was being handled by the insurance company. Even though I have had comp claims before, I have never hired a worker's compensation attorney. I searched the internet for lawyers and eventually interviewed Chris Parks. He agreed to take my case and I'm really glad he did! From the very beginning Chris was open, honest and explained the legal process in a straightforward way. Unlike some other lawyers I've heard horror stories about, he did not try to wow me with legalese, or tell me what to do. Instead, he discussed all the major issues with me and let me make the important decisions based on his advice. I am very happy with the way my case was resolved and I have recommend Chris to others. If you are looking for a workers' compensation attorney I strongly recommend you at least call Chris. If your case goes the way mine did, you'll be very happy you hired him!

I hired Chris many years ago in a small matter. He did such a great job that I used him again to help negotiate a settlement in a serious car wreck I was involved in. Great lawyer, straight shooter, and he really knows the personal injury business. I have repeatedly sent friends and relatives to Chris and I recommend him to anyone that has been in an accident or has questions about insurance. Also, I know how important reviews are to me when I read them on websites and yet I don't write reviews very often, but in Chris' case I thought it was important to make an exception. Hiring a lawyer for a serious case is not something to do lightly -- believe me, I know. But, if I am ever in another wreck there is only one person I will call... and you're already looking at his website!
