If a product fails to provide the level of safety the public is entitled to expect when used as directed, then it may be considered defective. However, it is not always obvious that a serious injury or loss is due to a product defect. Our attorneys are extremely experienced in investigating these types of claims and determining who is ultimately at fault. The manufacturer, designer and/or retailer could be held partially, or even completely, responsible if a product defect results in injury or death to a consumer and may allow an injured party to recover significant financial compensation. Products that are often the focus of such claims include motor vehicles, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, toys and recreational or sporting equipment.
A product liability claim usually falls into one of three possible types:
- those claiming a design defect
- those claiming a manufacturing defect
- those claiming a failure to warn
At Stratton Faxon, we’ve seen nearly all types of product liability claims. If you have been harmed by a product or service, we will strategically approach your case and focus our efforts on getting you a fair result from “big business.” We’ve done it before and we’ll do it again.
