In instances where products are not safely designed, manufactured or properly warned against, manufacturers and sellers of defective products can be held liable for injuries sustained.
Product liability laws vary from state to state. In Massachusetts, it is illegal to manufacture or sell an unreasonably dangerous product. When a person is injured or worse killed by a defective product, Massachusetts law imposes liability on the manufacturer and seller of that defective product. The manufacturer and seller of a defective product may be required to pay damages, including double or triple damages as well as attorney’s fees.
If you were injured or lost a loved one as a result of a defective product, you may have a right to seek financial compensation for medical care and attendance, lost earnings and other damages recognized in Massachusetts. Contact our office to discuss your rights.
