Product Liability Lawyers in Washington, DC
Protecting the Rights of Victims Injured by Defective Products
Product liability law establishes the duties of companies that make products
available to the public and the rights of consumers injured by unsafe
products. When consumers suffer from the use of a product - whether the
damage is physical, emotional, or financial - they have the right to file
a personal injury claim against the manufacturer, distributor, and / or
retailer responsible for the defective product. Your eligibility to pursue
compensation for your damages will depend on the circumstances of your case.
Claims for defective products can be filed for the following reasons:
- Defective design – an inherent flaw in a product’s design may
render it defective, and therefore dangerous to consumers, no matter how
it is constructed.
- Defect during manufacturing – Manufacturing defects refer to mistakes
made during the manufacturing process that make an otherwise safe product
dangerous. Examples of manufacturing defects include poor workmanship
and sub-standard materials.
- Defects with marketing – Products marketed in inappropriate ways
can lead to improper use and injuries. Failures to warn users about potential
dangers are also considered marketing defects.
Our legal team can conduct a thorough investigation of your case, often
with the help of other experts in the field, to collect and secure evidence
in your favor. The legal system implements measures to protect the rights
of consumers, and we apply these laws directly to the facts of your case
