When companies release unsafe products, they're putting quick profits over consumer safety. They're considering consumer injuries as a business expense: one that can be minimized by company lawyers, bully tactics, and low settlements. That’s where we step in. Companies shouldn’t be allowed to gamble with consumers’ safety, so we make sure they pay a steep price for it. Our clients have recovered billions of dollars with our help, including record-shattering product liability cases. We’re the firm you can trust when you’re facing the toughest fight of your life.
We Tried (and Won) a Case That Led to the Nationwide Recall of a Dangerous Product
When someone buys or uses a product, their expectation is that it will work safely. Unfortunately, poorly designed and manufactured products cause countless people to suffer serious injuries every day. There’s no excuse for a company to sell an unsafe product. If a company releases a product that is dangerous to users—without informing them of the risks of use—people have the right to pursue litigation against those companies. When products cause people to suffer, the top-rated legal team at Arnold & Itkin fights for the financial compensation that they need.
We help people facing product liability issues such as:
- Design defects
- Manufacturing defects
- Failures to warn
When companies fail to test their products, market them without proper warnings in an irresponsible manner, and needlessly fail to prioritize customer safety, we're the firm people call. We’ve secured more than $10 billion for our clients. If you’ve suffered because of an unsafe or defective product, you can count on us to fight for you no matter what.
“I really feel like Arnold & Itkin brought justice to my family. Not only my family but many other families. It was just unreal how tirelessly they worked.” Terry Yount Father of Risperdal Victim
When clients call us, they’re experiencing suffering most people can’t imagine. When we hear what happened to them, investigate their claim, and get them any help they need, we form a bond that never goes away. When the dust settles and our clients have the results they need, our team loves hearing them tell other people “they treated us like family.” Our product liability lawyers don’t just seek compensation from large companies. We help regular people rebuild their lives. Every case is personal to us.
At Arnold & Itkin, we’ve shown time and time again that size doesn’t intimidate us. After Johnson & Johnson marketed a drug for children knowing it could disfigure them, we made them answer for it. Our investigation uncovered they weren't only aware of the drug’s risks, but they actively hid the evidence. The result was an $8 billion verdict against one of the world’s most powerful companies.

What Is a Product Recall?A product recall is the process of removing a dangerous product from the market. Products in the United States must meet a set of safety standards to remain on store shelves. When a product is found to be unsafe, it can trigger a national product recall. People who’ve been hurt by a defective product are eligible to file an injury claim, whether their injuries happened before or after a recall.
What Companies Are Liable for Unsafe Products?This varies based on the circumstances of each case. In some instances, a manufacturer will be responsible for a faulty product. In other cases, the company that designed a product will be at fault. Often, our investigations reveal that multiple parties bear responsibility for causing harm. When we investigate your claim, we’ll approach it from all angles to make sure all liable parties answer for what happened to you.
What Can I Recover Through a Product Liability Lawsuit?The purpose of a lawsuit is to help injured people get enough compensation to rebuild their lives. Our team fights to help clients recover losses from medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any other damage caused by a dangerous product.
What If a Product Was Working as Intended When It Injured Me?Companies can be held at fault for injuries caused by their products, even if the product was working as intended. Manufacturers must warn consumers of any risks associated with the use of their products. If they fail to do so, they’re liable for damages that result. Manufacturers are also obligated to provide instructions about how to safely use their products. Failing to notify consumers of a product’s risks is unacceptable.
