Product Defects Modesto, California

When people are harmed because of a product defect or a design flaw in a piece of heavy machinery, the injuries are usually serious and long-lasting, even fatal. Often, these kinds of injuries happen around industrial machinery, especially agricultural machinery in the Central Valley. The enormity of the injury often takes one wage earner out of the family permanently, causing a whole other set of problems. When you are hurt, we can help. We charge no attorney fees unless we win results.

Call (209) 340-1110 or contact us today. Our Modesto law firm represents people who have been injured in accidents involving product defects. We also represent the families of loved ones who have died a wrongful death. We have attorneys on staff with more than four decades’ experience in personal injury legal matters.

We understand the difficulties that you and your family may be enduring and we want to help you get the answers, support and settlement that you need to regain stability in your life. We are a small firm with the sophistication, legal knowledge, skill and dedication to get results for you.
