Product Liability


At Van Dorn, Curtiss & Rousseau, PLLC, we believe that when you buy a product you should be able to trust that the product is safe. It's the manufacturer's responsibility to ensure that their goods and services meet accepted standards for quality and safety. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

While you may feel cheated out of your money after purchasing a defective product, there are other far more harmful effects. Often, defective products are extremely hazardous and can cause serious injuries or even death, all because of the fact that the manufacturer was negligent in distributing a dangerous product. Our personal injury attorneys in New Hampshire can help.
