When a child is hurt by a product whether at home, outside the home or at school, this area of law is called “products liability”. People are hurt every day in accidents from the use of everything from a common household item to highly complicated machinery on the job and in some cases it can be appropriate to file product liability lawsuits.
The Keenan Law Firm has been involved with hundreds of product liability lawsuits and wrongful death cases ranging from: toys, bicycles, airbags, child seats and fastening devices, cribs and bedding, and even automatic garage doors. Recently our firm has pioneered the area of product liability lawsuits involving automobile air bag injuries. Injuries often occur because of their inadvertent requirement, improper use, and failures to deploy.

Most product injuries or death require working with highly credential experts. Over the years, the Keenan Law Firm has worked with former NASA space engineers, the developer of the lap top safety belt, the individual who owns the patent on the lunar moon buggy, designers of hot air balloons, former government safety department heads and officials in building product liability lawsuits for our clients.
