Other Consumer Product Defects

Consumers purchase and use products based upon the reliance that the product was properly designed, tested and manufactured. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and consumers can be seriously injured by commonly used products.

The lawyers at Tooher Wocl & Leydon, LLC, have extensive experience fighting to ensure clients receive the maximum compensation possible in product liability cases. We understand the confusion and frustration that follows an injury caused by a product purported to be safe by the manufacturer. With a team of dedicated professionals working by our side, we will carefully examine the product, its history and defects in the design or manufacturing process.
