Distinguishing a solid file for recovery can be complicated. When a defective product causes a loss, the manufacturer of the product, the wholesaler, and the distributor may be liable. To know under what circumstance these parties can be held liable is equally demanding. When files such as these arrive and you are wondering who is responsible for the damages the product caused, contact us. We will help you identify claims with subrogation potential, propose a plan to identify the responsible third party, and work toward recovery. Contact one of our product liability subrogation attorneys to schedule a consultation and allow Keis George to redefine what it means to recover your money faster.
