Defective product cases we handle:

Manufacturers, retailers, and wholesalers can be liable for damages resulting from defective product injuries. Products that fall under this type of law include real estate, food, drugs, and almost all consumer products. In order to seek damages in a defective product claim, you do not need to be the original purchaser of the product, and it is typically not necessary to prove negligence to gain compensation. You can file for damages as long as you used the product as it was intended and did not substantially alter it from its original condition.
In order for your case to be accepted by the courts, you must file your claim within 2 years of the date of your injury. This is known as the "statute of limitations." Failure to file in time will most likely result in your claim being dismissed by the court. Don't wait! Contact McGlone Law today to find out how we can help.
Common product liability issues:
With 80 years of combined experience, Jerry McGlone and his son Dan serve as top quality Terre Haute product liability lawyers for a variety of product liability issues. Most defective product cases in Indiana are matters of strict liability, which means that you must first prove that the product had a defect, and then prove that the defect caused the injury. If the product was used as intended and was not altered, the injured party can sue for damages. We can determine your eligibility and work directly with you from initial consultation to resolution of your case.
A product is defective if it has a design defect, if the manufacturer or seller fails to warn about dangers associated with its use, or if a manufacturing defect exists when it is improperly assembled. In all defective product cases, documentation such as receipts of purchase or repair records are essential for building a strong case. Our product liability attorneys in Terre Haute can investigate the incident to build your case and represent you in court.
