At Garrett, Walker, & Aycoth, we believe that manufacturers have an ethical responsibility to make safe products. This includes the vehicles we drive, the food we eat, the drugs we take, the toys we give our kids – almost everything that we touch, see and feel.

We believe that no product can be perfectly safe but that efforts have to be made to inform consumers of the known risks involved with a product. We also believe that if a manufacturer produces a product and fails to identify or inform the user of the risks associated with use of the product, they need to be held accountable for personal injuries that occur as a result of their failure to disclose those risks.

Here are a few examples of the many cases we handle involving defective products:
• Medical equipment products (oxygen tank valves, parts for joint replacements, defective medications).
• Household and construction equipment (ladders, improper scaffolding, lifting devices).
• Farming equipment (defective anhydrous valves and hoses, potato harvester).
• Manufacturing equipment (punch presses, conveyor belts, materials handling equipment).

We don’t believe in frivolous lawsuits either!! However, people who are injured by the fault of others are entitled by law to compensation. We do not get involved unless we can prove fault and there is a substantial injury. In some cases, no direct cause can be linked to the injury, or what happened is simply a case of bad luck where there is no one responsible. In those cases, there may be no compensation available.

On the other hand, IF a link can be established between the product and the injury, we will investigate it quickly (because often the business pulls the product from the market or fixes the problem before an investigation can be completed). We will hire experts as needed to help us prove the case and we will go to trial as necessary to get you the compensation to which you are entitled.
