Defective Products

Proven Results in Class Action Defective Products Litigation

When a product fails or causes injury due to a bad design or manufacturing flaw, the manufacturer is liable. Manufacturers have a duty to stand behind their products, to design and test them to industry standards, and to warn end users of potential dangers. In many cases, large numbers of consumers experience similar losses or injuries because of a uniform defect.

Our experienced trial lawyers have won claims on the basis of design defects, manufacturing defects, failure to warn and breach of warranty.

Pearson, Simon & Warshaw, LLP (PSW) has had notable success in class action lawsuits for defective products liability. We welcome inquiries from consumers about pending class actions or possible new cases involving defective products. If you believe you have a case or may qualify for participation in a pending class action, call us toll-free at (877) 391-8300 or send an email.

Examples of Our Defective Product Cases:

  • Automobile Defects: PSW attorneys brought a class action lawsuit against Volkswagen alleging that the service manual incorrectly stated the inspection and replacement intervals for timing belts on Audi and Volkswagen branded vehicles equipped with a 1.8 liter turbo-charged engine. The case resulted in a nationwide class settlement in which class members were offered 100 cents on the dollar.
  • High Technology Products: PSW attorneys have served as co-lead counsel in state and nationwide class actions against such companies as Apple and Acer involving defective computers and iPod nanos. These cases have all resulted in favorable settlements.
  • Household Goods: PSW attorneys served as class counsel in a lawsuit arising from the sale of nine million defective fire sprinkler heads that led to huge failures during actual fires. The case resulted in a nationwide class settlement valued at approximately $37.5 million.
  • Defective Drugs: With plaintiffs nationwide, defective drug cases are typically combined into a class action in one jurisdiction. PSW has done significant work internally and with other law firms to certify these cases as class actions and pursue compensation on behalf of injured plaintiffs.
