Workplace Injury Cases
Workplace injury cases can be complicated, especially when workplace equipment malfunctions and causes the injury. This situation, and situations like it, are a basis for a worker’s compensation case against your employer and a product liability case against the manufacturer of the defective equipment. If you suffered a serious injury at work, don’t go at it alone. Call us for your worker’s compensation case.
Defective Products/ Product Liability
A product is legally defective if it contains a risk of harm that the average consumer would fail to expect or would fail to protect themselves from. A defect can be a “design” flaw, where something went wrong in the manufacturing process and the original design was not followed. Anyone who is involved in putting defective products into the stream of commerce is liable for the injuries caused by those defects. If the plaintiff can prove the defect and that he/she was harmed because of it, the manufacturer is liable, even if they weren’t negligent.
Drugs harm tens of thousands of Americans every year. Holding the manufacturers of such drugs liable plays an important role in preventing the release of new dangerous, more harmful drugs into the market. If you or a loved one was harmed by a due to drug use, please call us.

Examples include: the manufacturing or storage of high explosives, keeping exotic pets such as a lion or tiger, production of nuclear energy, etc. If you or someone you care about has been harmed by someone else’s ultra-hazardous activity, call J. Murphy Firm first.
