Uncovering product liability
back to top
Beasley Allen Report host Gibson Vance welcomes his law partner at Beasley Allen, Graham Esdale, to discuss product liability law. Graham began his law practice with the Jefferson County District Attorney's office, working cases involving child and sexual abuse and homicide cases. He says whether working with the victims of violent crime, or practicing product liability law, you are working with people in crisis. In many product liability cases, people are seriously injured or killed, and Graham says it means a lot to him to be able to help people in these difficult circumstances. Product liability cases most often deal with manufacturers who create a defective or dangerous product, and sometimes with dealers and retailers who sell the defective product. Attorneys investigate the circumstances surrounding how a person is injured by a defective product to determine who is at fault for the condition of the product. Many times, injuries on the job or in a single-vehicle accident may be traced back to a defective product.
