Product manufacturers, designers, distributors, wholesalers, and sellers are supposed to make sure that their consumer products are safe for consumption and use. When their failure to fulfill this duty leads to serious injury or death, the injury victims or their families can file for damages from all liable parties. To give you an idea of the scope of product liability, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), reports that toy-related injuries alone accounted for 232,900 injuries in 2007. Thousands of people die each year due to faulty consumer products.

Common products that may cause a catastrophic injury or a wrongful death are:

Products Liability Law

There are three kinds of product defects covered under products liability law:

Grounds for a Massachusetts products liability lawsuit related to any of these defects can include negligence, breach of warranty, and misrepresentation. In general, a product can be found "defective" if it poses a hazard that could be foreseen by the manufacturer or someone in the chain of production.

Even when a product is designed, manufactured, and marketed correctly, a person can still get hurt when a product malfunctions. Massachusetts's products liability law holds manufacturers and sellers strictly liable--even if they didn't do anything to contribute to the defect--if the plaintiff can prove that a product was dangerous or defective enough to cause personal injury or death.

Review: Altman and Altman LLP

    I was coming home from work traveling on 95 south at a complete stop when a Jeep Cherokee traveling 65 MPH hit me from behind. Injuries suffered were a Torn Rotator Cuff, Torn MCL, Blood Clot with Neck and Back damage. I had no idea how complex the process was. Dealing with the Insurance companies, Surgeries, PT, legal issues, doctors and bills. It was overwhelming and time consuming. David Altman stepped took care of everything every step of the way in an incredibly professional caring way. He was quick to respond to any questions or concerns including weekends. In 2 years there wasn't one time where a phone call wasn't returned with in 30 minutes. David kept me positive during the most negative times. 2 years later I'm pretty close to being back where I was and David is the reason why. I was able to just focus on getting better and he took care of everything else. He was very aggressive and professional with the insurance companies in this settlement of this case. He kept me up to date on a regular basis through the whole process. I can't thank David and his staff enough and strongly recommend them to anyone.

    I am not very good at words. I was involved in a horrible accident. David and his team (Thank You Asia & Rick) are wonderful, talented and compassionate. If it were not for their help, I don’t believe the outcome would be as good as it is. I am glad my case is settled, Altman & Altman are my go to team from now on. Thank you so very much.
