We use hundreds of products each and every day. When we pick up the remote control, lather our hair with shampoo, turn on our cars, press ‘start’ on our microwave, or put our babies to sleep in a crib, we are trusting that the manufacturer of the product has done the right thing and tested that the product is completely safe and up to industry standards. This is why we use these products – because they have been proven safe.
If you are facing an injury due to a dangerous or defective product, more than likely your trust has been diminished by the manufacturer. Because of the lack of safety and utter neglect of the company or manufacturer, you could be looking at life-altering consequences.

If you or a family member has been injured by a dangerous product, the personal injury attorneys at Bye, Goff & Rohde can help. We have years of experience in product liability cases against both domestic and foreign manufacturers. Whether the company is based in the United States or the product is manufactured overseas, we will fight on your behalf, no matter what it takes.

One of the most frightening things about dangerous products is that they often involve children’s toys, safety equipment, and furniture. Swings, car seats, battery-operated trucks and cars, cribs, walkers, bikes, and push toys may be recalled if they are not safe. Children’s toys and products must pass stringent tests in order to be shelved. If your child is injured because of a product, this is something that should not be ignored. Filing a personal injury lawsuit against the company or manufacturer will not only help you financially but will also warn other parents about these products and hopefully prevent injuries and accidents to other children and families.
If you or someone you love has faced an injury due to a defective or dangerous product, you need to save the product in a safe place. Look for sales receipts for the object as well as any manuals, warranties, and instructions that came with it. Take photos of the product as well as the injuries sustained following the accident. Make sure you consult a Wisconsin personal injury lawyer about what to do next and whether or not you have a case against the product in question.
