More and more, society relies on the products around them for just about everything, including transportation, communication, and household services. At the same time, some of these products can be defective and cause injuries. Among the recent examples of such defects are air bags that do not deploy, cellphones that catch on fire, tires that explode, and aircraft parts that do not function properly. Of course, many of these defects are completely unknown to the public. When you, or someone you know, has been injured by a defective product, Birch Horton Bittner & Cherot‘s personal injury lawyers have the knowledge and experience needed to determine the responsible party. We will fight for victims, for the families who have suffered the loss of a loved one in a wrongful death claim, and for those who have been injured in accidents of all kinds through no fault of their own.
When it comes to product defect cases, the manufacturer of the defective product will often do whatever it takes to avoid liability. They will most likely have an army of experts ready and willing to testify that the product is safe, even when it is not, and they have the resources to hire big law firms to defend their cases. Therefore, in order for you to compete with the corporations that create defective products, you need a law firm that is willing to stand up against the manufacturer and has the resources available to go toe-to-toe with the defense lawyers. At Birch Horton Bittner & Cherot Personal Injury, we are affiliated with one of the largest law firms in Alaska and have the resources to hire our own experts to demonstrate that a product is defective. With our background and experience, we will level the playing field which will allow you to seek maximum recovery.
