Product liability lawyers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin Settlements & damages for defective product injuries depend on your attorney's reputation
What are Wisconsin's product liability laws?
According to Wisconsin State Statute 895.047, manufacturers, distributors and retailers have a responsibility to ensure their products are not dangerous to their users and the public. Wisconsin applies strict liability laws for defective products, meaning companies are fully responsible for covering medical costs and additional damages (i.e. pain & suffering). If you were injured by a product defect, you must prove the defect was "unreasonably dangerous," and the product was defective when it left the seller. Contact an experienced product liability attorney to build an aggressive case against the manufacturer/distributors.
Maximize monetary compensation for defective product injuries
Manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure their products are safe. When their manufacturing defects, design failures, and poor choices result in injury or death to the consumer, our Milwaukee personal injury lawyers will hold them accountable and secure the compensation you deserve. The personal injury attorneys of Warshafsky Law have a long history of securing huge judgments and settlements for clients who have been injured by defective products of all types. As a result, manufacturers have been forced to change the way their products are manufactured to prevent anyone else from being injured. We fondly call these historical cases “Society Changing Judgments.” Throughout our six decades of practice, verdicts from Warshafsky cases have led to the design of safer consumer products & vehicles and the removal of dangerous drugs & pharmaceuticals from the market.
With years of experience and a first-rate investigative team, our Milwaukee personal injury lawyers excel at recovering the highest awards for all types of injuries.

Part of what sets Warshafsky Law apart from other firms is our willingness to take your case all the way to trial. While other firms are quick to accept the first settlement offer from the manufacturer or its insurance company, we prepare every case as though it will go to trial. Most cases will not go to trial. Companies settle at the last minute before the case escalates to a judge and jury. Insurance companies know we mean business.

If you have been wrongfully injured, you need an insurance attorney or workman's comp attorney skilled in both product liability litigation and negotiation.

Hear from our Milwaukee clients
I had the pleasure to work with Krista G. LaFave at Warshafsky law firm. Not only was Krista available for my questions, but she worked hard to get more money than I expected. Because of her insight, and professional advice, I listened to her. I was very anxious and wanted to just get this over with. Krista explained that she wanted to fight harder for me to end up with a better payday. I totally trusted her, I could tell she was fighting for me like I was a family member of hers. So happy to have had Krista fighting for me. I ended up with literally double the amount I had anticipated. Thank you again Krista.
