Product liability suit alleges scooter caused serious injury

When Ohio parents purchase a product intended for children, they have the right to assume that product is safe.

Childhood exposure to toxic materials may lead to cancer later

Whether in Ohio or anywhere across the country, it's far from unusual to find children playing outdoors.

Pharmaceutical litigation case over young girl's drug injuries

When it comes to prescription medication, most people are unable to tell the difference between one type of drug and another, and they shouldn't have to.

Man files product liability suit after e-cig causes severe burns

Many Ohio residents are likely at least familiar with e-cigarettes; in fact, some may be vapers themselves. While manufacturers say the devices are intended to provide a safer alternative to smoking cigarettes, there is little federal regulation so far. Unfortunately, this also means that there isn't much oversight into safety protocols surrounding the devices and their component parts, and some are finding this translates into hazardous occurrences that leave users injured, as is the complaint in a recently filed product liability suit.
