You use hundreds of products every day without incident. This is in part because of product liability laws. Because they can be held liable for defects in the design or production of their products, corporations are likely to be more careful. They consider the much higher costs of cutting corners that can result in expensive lawsuits. This important body of law protects you from serious harm and, when a product does injure you, gives you recourse for recovering the compensation you deserve.
Morgan & Morgan goes toe-to-toe with big corporations to protect the rights of Jackson consumers injured by defective products. If necessary, we sue product designers, manufacturers and vendors and base our claims on strict liability, breach of warranty, failure to warn and improper instructions.
Our product liability lawyers have a dual goal. We pursue the maximum possible damages for your injuries. By suing the negligent corporation, we also prevent a product from injuring others.
Mississippi Product Liability Laws
Mississippi’s laws governing product liability lawsuits protect corporations instead of consumers and are deceptively referred to as product liability reform. These laws put the corporation’s profits ahead of your safety:
- HB 13, Amended Miss. Code Ann. § 11-1-63 gives certain sellers immunity from lawsuits filed by injured Mississippians.
- HB 1270 indemnifies certain retails and wholesalers, strengthens protections of manufacturers of inherently dangerous products, relieves liability of sellers for failure to warn and limits product liability claims based on design, manufacturing defect, breach of an express warranty or failure to warn.
Morgan & Morgan are consumer advocates. We work for the people, not the powerful.
