Defective Products

People Before Profit

When you or a close family member is seriously injured or suffer a financial loss due to a defective product, the law provides for potential legal action against the manufacturer of that product.

When a product is defectively or negligently designed, whether it is a prescription drug, medical device, automobile, or other consumer good, the manufacturer of that product should be held accountable.  No one should suffer because a manufacturer “cut corners” in the making of its product, choosing profits over public safety.

The best and surest way to be compensated for your injury or loss and to hold manufacturers responsible for their negligence is to seek out an experienced defective products attorney, like one on our team at Seeger Weiss LLP.

Seeger Weiss has the experience and resources to take on even the largest and most-well financed businesses and adversaries.  Over the last 20 years, Seeger Weiss has won or favorably settled thousands of cases on behalf of our clients and their families, providing them with the compensation and support they need and deserve.  Some recent examples and success include:

  • Seeger Weiss served as lead counsel for a class of over 20,000 retired National Football League (NFL) players against the League, over brain and neurological injuries resulting from head hits and concussions. The firm negotiated a settlement of substantial awards (as great as $5 million for the most seriously injured), for an estimated total value of over $1 billion, ensuring medical care and meaningful compensation for the players and their families.

 

  • Seeger Weiss served as Lead Counsel in litigation against AbbVie Inc. and other manufacturers, concerning their testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) products. The firm served as trial counsel in several bellwether trials against AbbVie over their testosterone product AndroGel, winning federal jury verdicts greater than $150 million in the first case and $140 million in the second. The firm continues to represent plaintiffs in the ongoing litigation.

 

  • Seeger Weiss represented close to 5,000 U.S. property owners against German company Knauf Plasterboard Tianjin (KPT), worldwide distributor of drywall manufactured in China. Many of the plaintiffs were rebuilding their homes destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, only to discover that their new drywall was toxic.  As Lead Trial Counsel, the firm obtained successful verdicts in a succession of bellwether trials, leading to a national settlement valued at about $1 billion.
