Product Liability

Our New Mexico Attorneys Protect the Rights of Consumers in Products Liability Claims

Recovery from corporations responsible for defective and harmful products

Since 1979, Revo+Smith Law Firm, L.L.C. has advocated for the rights of consumers and workers to safe, effective products. Our law firm goes after big corporations that put profit above the public's health and safety. By filing a product liability claim for your injuries, our goal is twofold — to maximize your damages award and to stop companies from designing and producing harmful products.

Medical products

Do not assume that a product approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is safe. To win FDA approval for medical devices or drugs, corporations perform their own tests, collect their own data and make their own conclusions about efficacy and safety. The FDA relies on the corporations' research when the agency permits products to be sold in the marketplace. Only after serious injuries or fatalities does the FDA issue warnings or recalls.

We assist patients who have suffered injuries because of a defective medical device or pharmaceutical, including:

  • Transvaginal mesh
  • Stryker® artificial hip
  • Breast implants
  • Knee replacement parts
  • Insulin pumps
  • Dangerous drugs
  • Birth control pills, including Yaz® & Yasmin®
  • Tylenol
  • Supplements containing ephedra
  • Contaminated pharmaceuticals
  • Painkillers, such as Vioxx® and Celebrex®
  • Antidepressants, including Zoloft®, Paxil® and Prozac®

Auto parts

Often, an auto accident or truck accident is tied to a defective part. Our firm will consult with medical doctors, mechanics, forensic engineers and accident reconstructionists to determine whether a motor vehicle part caused the crash or contributed to your injuries. In addition to suing the negligent driver, our lawyers may also pursue car or truck manufacturers for:

  • Defective airbags
  • Seatbelt failure
  • Child safety seat failure
  • Soft brake pads
  • Tire blowouts
  • Unstable auto design prone to rollovers
  • Roof crush
  • Engine fires

Household items

You do all you can to protect your loved ones from harm. In your own home, you should feel safe and secure from dangers. Yet, everyday household items can present serious risks to your family. Our legal team will hold companies accountable for injuries you suffered because of:

  • Contaminated food
  • Adulterated over-the-counter medications
  • Lead in paint and toys
  • Volatile organic compounds in furnishings
  • Contaminated food
  • Adulterated over-the-counter medications
  • Lead in paint and toys
  • Volatile organic compounds in furnishings
  • Asbestos contained in insulation
  • Non–fire-retardant materials used for clothing and bedding
  • Defective electronics that can cause fire and electrocution
  • Baby's furniture with gaps that catch for fingers, limbs and heads

Machinery and tools

As a worker in a high-risk industry — such as construction, agriculture or manufacturing — you use heavy machinery and dangerous tools every day. Even if you take appropriate precautions, you may nonetheless be subject to catastrophic injuries, such as falls from height, crush injuries, amputations, burns and electrocutions from defective equipment. Our lawyers conduct a full investigation into whether a manufacturer is responsible for:

  • Ladder malfunction
  • Scaffolding collapse
  • Failure of an electric saw's cutoff switch
  • Inadequate guard against finger or hair catching in machine teeth
  • Explosion of chemicals
  • Leaching of toxins
  • Short-circuiting electrical wires
