Product Defects and Failures

Every year, more than a million people are injured…due to Product Defects and Failures

The Consumer Products Safety Commission reports that more than one million people--many of them children--are injured annually in household accidents associated with household products.

Here’s what the Household Product Companies do to protect their interests…

These corporate giants all have elaborate Public Relations campaigns and highly-paid legal departments to minimize their companies’ responsibilities for any such accidents…frequently placing blame on the victims: the parent or child.

But who’s there to protect your interests?

  • Attorneys at Sickels, Frei and Mims have been representing injured people against corporate giants since the 1980.

Our attorneys have been instrumental in promoting Product Safety

  • Safer seatbelts, air bags, side impact protection, lawnmower safety devices, pool & spa drain regulators, and temperature regulators on bathtub & shower controls are just a few of the byproducts of efforts by Sickels, Frei and Mims attorneys to make consumer products safer.

Gary Mims represented me as my attorney with an issue I had last year. Working with Gary was a pleasure. He was very understanding about my situation, and it was affirming to talk to him. He had a good grasp not only of the legal issues, but the technical issues with my case. Other attorneys I had approached were less receptive because they were not familiar with my particular issue; Gary was. He was professional, empathetic, and a zealous advocate. I was very pleased with how he handled my case... Lisa Ramish

Trusted advice and guidance when you need it most: Gary Mims of Sickels, Frei and Mims, provided outstanding help and guidance through a difficult, emotional and often complex process. When we first thought we might need legal assistance we reached out to several attorneys that we found on the internet and Gary stood out from all the rest: he explained the situation and process ahead in simple terms that we were able to understand...While we hope not to need legal support in the future, if we did, Gary Mims would most certainly be our first, and only, choice. 10 out of 10, thank you Colonel Jeremy Johnson
