Our Approach, Tailored To You
First, we listen to all of the details of your case and ask thoughtful, productive questions based on our years of expertise excelling in product liability litigation.
This is how we can determine, among other things, who is responsible for compensating you after you have been injured through the use of a defective product. It may be an engineer, advertising company, manufacturing supervisor, vendor or maintenance company. The legal basis for your injury claim may be a defective design, manufacturing process, or label – including failure to warn consumers of known hazards.
Then, we develop a product liability claim or lawsuit. Massachusetts is a strict liability state, meaning that even if the individual or company responsible for the defect that injured you was not aware of the defect, they may be on the hook regardless.
Finally, we strive to bring the responsible party (or parties) to justice. You may be compensated for one or more of the following: medical bills, lost wages, or pain and suffering.
