We have helped people in and around Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg get the compensation they need to recover from their injuries, and have held sellers and manufacturers accountable for their work.

Dangerous and defective products, and the injuries they cause
There is always a chance that you could sustain an injury while using a product in its intended way – slicing a finger with a sharp knife, for example, or being hit with a rock kicked up while you mow your lawn. But certain types of products have led consumers to suffer serious, debilitating injuries more often than others, such as:
- Defective auto parts. The news constantly reports on poorly designed or manufactured auto parts. From GM’s spontaneous ignitions switches to Takata’s exploding airbags to Volkswagen’s deadly emissions, these are only a few recent examples of dangerous or defective parts. A poorly manufactured auto part can cause death or dismemberment, or cause you to suffer additional serious injuries outside of those which you might sustain in a crash.
- Defective medical devices and drugs. It feels like you cannot turn on the T.V. without hearing about some new medication – and a long litany of side effects that might seem far worse than the illness or injury the drug was supposed to “cure.” Pharmaceutical companies care more about their bottom lines than they do about patients’ rights and futures, and faulty design and manufacturing, along with shady dealings when it comes to sales and distribution, has led to a slew of serious side effects. If you or a loved one had to undergo a revision surgery, suffered organ failure or paid the ultimate price, a medical products liability lawsuit may help you recover compensation.
- Defective children’s products. From car seats to clothing to toys with choking hazards, our children are at risk every day of being grievously harmed or even killed by defective toys and products. We help Sevierville families just like yours whose children have been hurt on dangerous jungle gyms, by unsafe clothing materials and while playing with dangerous toys.
- Unsafe or contaminated foods. Salmonella outbreaks, peanut allergens, coli – every day, the very food we eat may be trying to do us harm. A manufacturer or retailer’s failure to warn consumers about what, exactly, is in their products can lead to a deadly allergy attack. Producers’ failure to maintain acceptable hygiene levels and standards at their plants or farms leave us vulnerable to disease and outbreaks. When your food “fights back,” we can help you with your claim for your lose wages, medical treatments and pain and suffering.
Retailers, designers, manufacturers and distributors all owe consumers a duty of care. When they fail in that duty, or choose to cut corners to make their products more quickly while sacrificing quality, you are the ones who pay for those decisions. When you do, we at the Law Office of Bryan E. Delius are on hand to hold the guilty parties accountable for their actions, and to fight for justice on your behalf.
