Kentucky Products Liability Trial Lawyers Protect Clients’ Rights
Products put into the stream of commerce must be reasonably safe for their intended use. When someone is injured using a consumer appliance or industrial tool, the question of product safety arises. If a defect in the product caused harm, the injured consumer is entitled to personal injury compensation. However, if misuse of the product is to blame, the company that designed manufactured, or marketed the product may not be responsible. Products liability claims can be complex and require an experienced attorney. Oakes Law Firm has significant experience and we put that knowledge to work for you.

The Advantages of Contacting an Attorney Immediately
Consult an attorney as soon as possible after being injured by a product or notified of a claim. By immediately investigating the claim and preserving crucial evidence while still fresh, your attorney can gain a valuable advantage in proving your case. Another reason why speed is essential is that Kentucky law stipulates that victims must file claims within a set period after the injury. By missing this window of opportunity, known as the statute of limitations, victims lose their right to recover compensation for damages.
