Product liability law is based on the premise that companies who manufacture, distribute, or sell defective products should be held accountable when those products cause an injury. Product liability law can apply to a myriad of things such as defective toys, drugs, food, tools and machinery, household goods, vehicles, and more. When someone is injured because of a product, it generally is caused by:
- Defective manufacturing;
- Defective design; or
- Defective warning labels.
Pharmaceutical drugs have become a mainstay of our modern life. It’s a safe assumption that just about everyone has taken pharmaceutical drugs at some point in their lives, from Tylenol to antibiotics to pain medication. When we are ill, we rely on these drugs to make us more comfortable and help us heal.
Unfortunately, pharmaceutical companies know this, and they can be more concerned with profits than consumer health. When this happens, undisclosed side effects, injuries, addiction, or even death can occur. Paynter Law litigates against pharmaceutical manufacturers, distributors, hospitals, and doctors on behalf of patients who have suffered injury or death as a result of a particular drug and/or the action or inaction of the manufacturer and its associated medical clinics. Claims often include:
- Failure to warn.
- Medical errors.
- Defective medications.
- Products liability.
- Breach of the standard of care.
- Inadequate testing.
The loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult things we will deal with in life. What is worse is when a death is unexpected, untimely, and the fault of a negligent party. While pursuing a claim against the at-fault party will never bring a loved one back, it can help to give you answers and peace of mind.
Wrongful death claims may arise as a result of:
- Auto accidents;
- Tractor trailer accidents;
- Nursing home accidents;
- Motorcycle accidents;
- Bicycle accidents;
- Pedestrian-Auto accidents;
- Traumatic brain injuries;
- Slip and fall accidents.
Paynter Law is here to provide you with compassionate, dedicated, responsive legal counsel. We will be there with you every step of the way, so you can focus on healing from your loss.
There are an estimated 6 million auto accidents every year in the U.S., with 3 million people suffering injuries as a result. With statistics like these, it is likely that you or a loved one may be involved in a car accident in your lifetime. Common injuries from auto accidents may include:

Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
With our aging population, there are now more Americans in nursing homes than ever before. It is estimated that there are currently 1.5 million people in nursing homes. As our loved ones age, we are often left with little choice but to entrust the care of our loved ones to these facilities.
Sadly, sometimes things can go terribly wrong, resulting in serious injury to our loved one. Often these cases arise from:
- Negligent supervision.
- Failure to keep the premises safe.
- Negligent hiring or training of staff.
- Failure to provide adequate supervision.
