Product Liability Attorney Boston

Product liability claims can help to compensate you for an injury or death that occurs because of a defective product. While this is true, these cases can be complex and confusing. For this reason, it’s recommended that you hire a Boston product liability attorney to help with your case.

The experience, resources, and skills we bring to the table will help ensure you get the best possible outcome for your situation.

How to Protect Your Legal Rights After a Product Liability Incident​

Your legal rights must be protected after you are involved in an accident that was caused by some type of defective product. One of the best things you can do in these situations is to hire a product liability attorney Boston as soon as possible. In many cases, you may have to act fast to ensure that all your rights are protected. In Boston (and all of Massachusetts), there is a statute of limitations regarding how long you have to file a lawsuit against the liable party.

When choosing an attorney, try to find one who understands the complex nuances and laws in this field and has the experience and resources needed to evaluate and represent your case. An experienced lawyer in this field will have established relationships with experts who can be used to consult on your case or called as witnesses. In the long run, these types of resources will benefit you and your situation significantly.

Common Types of Products That Cause Injuries and Fatalities

While any product can cause injuries and death, some are more commonly cited in these cases than others. Some of these include:

  • Toys that are contaminated or that cause choking injuries
  • Defective toys
  • Electronics that result in fires or shocks
  • Recalled or defective medical devices
  •  Medications that cause severe side effects
  •  Industrial machinery
  •  Vehicles
  • Baby products, carriers, child seats, etc.
  • Auto parts (brakes, seatbelts, airbags, etc.)
  • Boats
  • Motorcycles
  • Bedding and clothing
  • Fitness equipment
  •  Household appliances
  • Sporting goods
  • Power tools
  • Cosmetics
  • Ladders

 

When it comes to any defective product, it’s a good idea to find an attorney with experience representing these types of cases. For example, hiring a motor vehicle product liability attorney Boston is necessary if you are injured due to a vehicle part or component.

Cases of Defective Drugs and Medical Devices

There are also cases where you may be injured by a defective drug or medical device. In this situation, you will need the legal services of a defective medical device attorney. Some of the issues that you may need this legal professional for include injuries caused by:

  • Hip implants
  • Ranitidine and Zantac medications
  • Paxil birth defects
  • Defective surgical screws
  • Accutane
  • Multaq
  • Actos
  • Hernia mesh
  • Transvaginal mesh

 

Steps to Take if You Are Injured in a Product Liability Case

If you have been in an accident involving a defective product, it’s important to preserve any related evidence. This means keeping the product and not modifying it or trying to take it apart. You should also store it somewhere so that you can provide it as evidence if you file a lawsuit.

The attorney you hire will use this to build your case and determine who the liable party in your case is.
