Product liability law holds the manufacturers, wholesalers, and/or retailers of products responsible for making, distributing or selling bad products. Specifically, companies who make, sell or distribute products that contain manufacturing defects, design defects, or marketing defects can be forced to pay monetary damages when the defects in their products cause injury or harm.

Manufacturing defects are those defects that arise from the process of making the product. Design defects are defects that occur during the design of the product. Finally, marketing defects are those defects that exist because of inadequate warnings about unknown dangerous components of the product. The attorneys of Gianola Barnum, Bechtel, and Jecklin have experience handling defective products cases in all three areas of products liability law. Specific experiences include lawsuits alleging:
