Product liability suit alleges truck caught fire, injured man

Legally, in Ohio and across the U.S., manufacturers, suppliers and distributors, retailers and others who make products available to consumers are responsible for any injuries those products cause.

When the injuries are severe, however, or even life-threatening, the support of a product liability attorney may be the best option for victims.

Lawsuit alleges exposure to toxic materials caused fatal cancer

While Ohio's rich historical involvement in industry and manufacturing often puts it high on the list for lawsuits involving dangerous or hazardous substances, it is not alone in this sad distinction.
