The primary purpose of tort law is to forge a safer society. Only when the primary purpose fails, does the second purpose come into play—compensation for the injured victim.
Located in Columbus, Indiana, the consumer safety/product liability attorneys at Cline, King & King, P.C. believe that by advocating for the injured consumer, we are advocating for change. Consumers need to be confident that their vehicles, toys, appliances, equipment, and consumer goods are designed and manufactured for safety.
Through careful design, manufacture, and distribution of goods, corporations can make Americans safer. We are devoted to ensuring that corporations (including foreign corporations) carefully design and manufacture products.
