A Law Firm That Holds Manufacturers Accountable
When you buy a product at a store or online, you expect it will be safe for you to use. The companies that manufacture products have a responsibility to make sure they are safe for consumers to use before putting them on the market. But all too often, a defective product leaves someone seriously hurt. The Omaha product liability lawyers at Ausman Law Firm, P.C., L.L.O. fight for the rights of victims who have been injured by these defective products.
Manufacturers can be held accountable for any injuries from the use of their product if they were negligent. An injury can occur when using a product because of:
- Defective design - The product was designed in a way that made it dangerous to use. For example, a vehicle designed with a high center of gravity may be prone to rollovers.
- A defective manufacturing process - The manufacturer may have used materials that were not high quality and prone to breaking or malfunctioning.
- Failure to warn of hazards - The manufacturer has a responsibility to provide consumers with instructions on the proper use of the product and to warn against any hazards if misused.
An experienced attorney can help victims of defective products fight back to recover compensation for their injuries.

Manufacturers and their insurance companies are not likely to cooperate when you file a personal injury claim. They will likely deny responsibility and may suggest that you were to blame for what happened. Attorneys Jason Ausman and Michelle Epstein used to work for insurance companies. They know the strategies insurance companies use to deny responsibility and reduce the amount of any settlements. And they know what it takes to file a successful claim.
