How might I locate recently filed lawsuits alleging a particular product defect?

Does anyone have a method of finding out whether/where lawsuits with particular facts have been recently filed?
I'm interested in general advice, but specifically what I am looking for is any cases alleging a particular product defect. There is one manufacturer I am particularly interested in, but similar products are produced by other manufacturers. I am interested in cases in any U.S. jurisdiction, state or federal.
I don't believe Westlaw/Lexis would be useful for what I'm interested in, as the cases are more likely to be in state court, and likely to have been recently filed (so possibly no significant court orders exist).
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
