Product Liability Lawyer in Mississippi
Hurt by a Defective Product? Call (601) 869-0696
As consumers, we purchase products with the belief that they are safe for
their intended use. Unfortunately, not all products are. When a product
is defective to the point that it poses risks of injuries, consumers can
suffer harm that could and should have been prevented. Fortunately, product
liability laws allow victims harmed by all types of consumer products
to bring legal action against the manufacturer or other party that made
an unsafe product available to the public.
Because product liability claims typically involve product manufacturers
and other corporations that have extensive assets at their disposal, these
claims can be challenging. At Richard Schwartz & Associates, P.A.,
our defective product lawyers have the insight, experience, and resources
to help injured victims and families across Mississippi effectively level
the playing field with these large corporations – many of which
put profits over people in their attempts to defend against claims and
pay as little as possible.

Types of Product Liability Claims
Product liability generally requires manufacturers, distributors, and others
that make products available to consumers to ensure the products they
make and provide are safe for their intended use. Errors made when designed,
manufacturing, or even marketing a product can make them inherently dangerous,
and can subject innocent consumers to preventable injuries.
Design defects – Some consumer products are inherently dangerous from their inception
due to unsafe designs. When a product is designed in a way that it poses
unreasonable hazards, injured victims will need to show that a safer design
was possible, and that a product manufacturer failed to uphold its duty
when it still produced and released the product.
Manufacturing defects – Manufacturing defects are among the most common product liability
claims, and they refer to errors made during the actual construction of
a product. Manufacturing defects can occur for a number of reasons, including
poor quality materials, substandard workmanship, inadequate oversight
or quality control, and inadequate testing.
Marketing defects – Some defective products cause injuries to consumers as a result
of being improperly marketing. Commonly, these cases involve failures
to adequately warn about risks a reasonable and competent consumer would
not be aware of when using a product.
Determining the type of product liability claim in your case is a matter
that requires personalized review and investigation. When you discuss
your case with our team, we can explore the available options in your
case, and pursue the most appropriate avenue to establish fault and liability
and help you fight for the compensation you rightfully deserve.

Defective Product Injuries & Your Rights
If you or someone you love has been injured by a defective product, you
might have the right to pursue compensation for your economic and noneconomic
damages. These damages typically include:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional injuries and mental anguish
- Medical expenses, including any future medical needs
- Lost income and diminished earning capacity
Every case is unique, and the way in which injuries impact a victim’s
life will always be different. In some cases, especially when defective
products cause catastrophic injuries or
wrongful death, families of victims may also be able to seek damages for their emotional
and financial losses. Our Jackson-based legal team works diligently to
understand and illustrate the full scope of our clients’ damages
in order to fight for the maximum compensation possible.
