Whether you live in Mobile or another Alabama town, you handle numerous products daily and probably purchase a few new ones each week. All of the things you use should be designed, manufactured, marketed, and sold in a way that is honest and safe.
When manufacturers, retailers, and other parties involved with creating and selling products lose sight of consumer safety or knowingly break the law, the result is defective products that are potentially dangerous hazards in your home.
If you were hurt because of a defective product, numerous federal and state laws might apply to your situation.

On the federal level, products and sales must conform to the Uniform Commercial Code, the Consumer Product Safety Act, the Child Safety Protection Act, and other statutes. Additionally, the Alabama Extended Manufacturers’ Liability Doctrine may cover products sold in Alabama.
