New Mexico Product Liability Lawyers
Defective Product Attorneys in Albuquerque, Serving Clients Nationwide
When we as consumers purchase goods, we do so under the assumption that they have been properly tested and are safe for use. Unfortunately, this trust is not always rewarded. All too often, there are products on the U.S. market that are later proven to be inherently dangerous; in some cases, it is not until after hundreds of people have paid the price that they are recalled. As New Mexico product liability lawyers, we find this unacceptable.
Our attorneys fight for those who have been harmed or have lost loved ones as a result of dangerous or defective consumer products, from children's toys to appliances to heavy machinery. We have won over $10 billion in settlements and verdicts for our clients, helping them get the support they need to rebuild.

Understanding Product Liability Lawsuits in New Mexico
Generally, product liability can be broken down into three following types:
- Design Defect: Products can be dangerous by design. No matter how well the product is made, it would prove to be dangerous. An example is a top-heavy SUV with a propensity to roll over.
- Manufacturing Defect: In some cases, a product can be designed well, but made poorly, which led to the defect. An example is a toy with a loose screw that presents a choking hazard.
- Marketing Defect: Products may have some form of danger that is not communicated to consumers. Examples include failures to warn, inadequate instructions for use, and improper marketing.
Any product liability lawsuit is likely to present significant challenges. Fortunately, we have the drive, manpower, and resources to take on manufacturing giants, retailers, distributors, insurance companies, and anyone who tries to stand in the way of justice for clients who have been seriously injured or who have lost loved ones.

Throughout the years, our trial attorneys have proven themselves in and out of the courtroom. In fact, Attorney Kurt Arnold was involved in a case that led to the nationwide recall of a defective goalie mask after he was able to prove that it was defective in design. In another landmark case, we represented a young man who grew abnormal breast tissue from taking Risperdal. We took on Janssen Pharmaceutical and Johnson & Johnson in court, securing a $76.6 million verdict—a result 20 times larger than prior Risperdal verdicts.
