Don’t Become a Statistic: Get a Product Liability Lawyer

When you buy a product from the store, you expect it to work properly. Sometimes, these items don’t work the way they’re supposed to. Defective products can cause serious injuries or even death. If consumers find a product is defective, the producer may issue a recall. However, a recall doesn’t help the people who may be affected by the defective product. The Law Office of William J. Crowley is a personal injury law firm in the Barnstable County, MA area that represents clients in defective product/product liability lawsuits. William J. Crowley is a determined personal injury lawyer who understands the complex laws surrounding product liability cases. Attorney Crowley has been holding companies responsible for their failures for more than 30 years. His biggest case, settled in 1983, was a personal injury claim involving six families from Woburn that developed leukemia from toxins dumped into their water supply. Attorney Crowley and his team found three local companies were guilty of the dumping and settled with them out-of-court. When you hire attorney Crowley, you’re bringing a with that same level of dedication, competence, and professionalism to your own case.

The Importance of Hiring a Defective Product Attorney

Companies have issued countless recalls in the past few decades, including some high-profile cases. Some products that are commonly recalled for liability concerns are:

  • Cars – motor vehicles are one of the most commonly-recalled products
  • Toys – for choking hazards, toxins, or defects
  • Medical devices – like transvaginal mesh or hip implants
  • Drugs – another commonly-recalled product for contaminants
  • Food – leafy greens are common suspects
  • Cosmetics – for products tainted with asbestos and other toxins
  • Sporting goods
  • Fitness equipment
  • Industrial machinery

If you receive an injury from a defective product, you may not even realize that you have the grounds for a legal case. A lawyer can help you determine whether or not you should file a lawsuit. Additionally, these kinds of cases are highly-technical areas of law. That makes them nearly impossible to understand for the layman. An experienced lawyer can identify the causes of a product liability case, apply the law to the situation, and guide you through the legal process. An attorney can also complete and file any paperwork in your defective product case and make sure you don’t miss any important court deadlines.

Massachusetts Product Liability Law

The state of Massachusetts has a proud history of enacting laws to protect its citizens, and product liability cases are no exception. Massachusetts is a strict liability state, meaning you don’t need to prove that the product was defective to win your case. Instead, the producer needs to prove that their product was not defective. There are three main types of defects that you can use to support your product liability claim under Massachusetts law:

  • Defective manufacturing – something about the way to the product was built makes it defective
  • Defective design – something in the way the product was inherently designed makes it defective
  • Failures to warn buyers – the company failed to properly warn consumers of dangers surrounding the product.

These three main types of claims cover all of the product defect cases under the Massachusetts Consumer Protection Act. If you fail to file your claim within three years, the statute of limitation dictates that your case is no longer valid. If you have any questions about your specific scenario and whether it constitutes a product liability claim, contact a lawyer.
