We're Here to Help
When you’re seriously injured because of defective consumer goods, medical devices, or medications, your life can be forever altered. You may experience substantial medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more.
At The Law Offices of John D. Halepaska, LLC, we pursue justice and compensation for consumers who have been injured due to harmful products.
What is a Product Liability Claim?
Product liability claims arise in one of two ways:
- When a product malfunctions and causes injury: Design defects, manufacturing errors, and failure to properly maintain products can all cause a product to malfunction.
- When an inherently dangerous product does not come with adequate warnings: Manufacturers and distributors have a duty to warn of known dangers. Failure to do so can result in injury to users.
In either case, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

How much will it cost me to bring a product liability claim?
In most cases you will pay nothing at all whether your case is successful or not.
Is there a time limit?
Yes. In most cases two years, but there can be exceptions. Now is the best time to act.
In most cases? What are the exceptions?
In high risk or complex cases we may agree with you from the outset that a success fee of up to 25% may be charged. This will not be payable if your claim is unsuccessful.
Will I have to go to court?
Probably not. Most cases settle. We often need to issue court proceeding to move matters along but it is rare for a case to go all the way to trial.
