severe burns, disfigurement, scarring and infection. Carbon monoxide poisoning causes
dizziness, disorientation and nausea and is almost always fatal. Defective

Defective Product Chain of Responsibility
The different groups that could be responsible for your suffering or your
loved one's suffering includes:
- Testing Laboratories
- Design or Engineering Companies
- Component Manufacturers
- Product Manufacturers
- Retailers or Wholesalers
- Repair Personnel
Normally, we trust that manufacturers will design and build quality, dependable
products. We trust that manufacturers will test their products adequately.
We trust that manufacturers and distributors will place necessary product
warnings on the package where we can see them and in will use language
we can understand. However, manufacturers and distributors betray that
trust frequently, and with every betrayal comes a chance for a life-altering injury.
Justice should hold the manufacturers, retailers and sellers of these products
accountable if their product has injured you or a loved one. For that
reason, it is important to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney
as soon as you can. Defective product claims can be difficult, but Gerber
Law is committed to justice for you and your loved ones. The experienced
