Product owners must guarantee the safety of the products they offer. After all, they stand to gain significant profits from properly marketing and selling great merchandise. Yet, if they do not put the proper quality control measures in place to ensure defect-free products, they can become liable for injuries or death resulting from use of their products. If you or a loved one experiences an injury due to a faulty product, you are entitled to pursue a product liability claim.
The product liability lawyers at Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P. have handled multiple serious and fatal injury claims successfully, recovering the maximum compensation possible for our clients. Our attorneys help clients hold product manufacturers, retailers, and distributors liable for bringing defective products to the marketplace.Types of Product Liability Claims
Whether through a problem in the design or manufacturing process, or failure to provide adequate warnings through consumer product labeling, companies must be held accountable for any harm incurred by their products. We handle injury and wrongful death claims for the following defective products:
- Children's products, including cribs, toys, walkers, and car seats;
- Automotive products such as tires, seat belts, and other auto parts;
- Motor vehicles such as cars, trucks, motorcycles, and boats;
- Consumer products like housewares and appliances;
- Electrical equipment, including personal electronic devices;
- Construction products such as ladders and scaffolding;
- Recreational equipment, including sporting goods and exercise machines; and
- Harmful prescription medication or equipment.
Unfortunately, there is no shortage of defective products. While some companies do issue recalls, it is often too late to help those who have already been injured. Our attorneys believe that just one injury caused by a defective product is unacceptable, and we build compelling arguments to help our clients obtain the help they need.Helping Parents Seek Justice for Injured Children
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), there were nearly 75,000 children's product-associated injuries treated in emergency rooms across America in 2014. These injuries impacted children younger than five years of age. Of those products, infant carriers, car seat carriers, cribs, mattresses, strollers, carriages, and high chairs accounted for roughly two-thirds of those injuries. In some cases, injuries and even fatalities were associated with a defective product.
