Successful Results For Our Clients

Compensation for Injuries Caused by Defective Products

Every day, people are seriously injured or killed by defective and dangerous products.   These products can include scaffolding on the job site,  power tools, nail guns, tractors, lawn mowers and forklifts; to name just a few. People are required to use these products as part of their job. Manufacturers must design their products to be safe. Sadly, too many manufacturers take short cuts and care more about money than the safety of the people using their products. That’s where we come in. 

Products can be defective in a number of ways: they can be defectively designed, defectively manufactured and/or have inadequate warnings or instructions that are necessary for the product’s safe use. We have helped our clients hold the largest manufacturers responsible for their unsafe or defective products that have harmed or killed them. We have won hundreds of millions of dollars in settlements and jury verdicts for our deserving clients. We have the ReputationResources and Results to be your champion. Call us today.

Frequently Asked Questions

A products liability claim arises when a consumer suffers an injury or illness due to a defective or dangerous product. Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers can be held responsible for these defects. At Laffey Bucci D’Andrea Reich & Ryan, our attorneys represent clients who have been injured by defective products, including faulty appliances, dangerous drugs, defective medical devices, and unsafe children’s products, among others.

There are three primary types of product defects that can give rise to a products liability claim:

  1. Design defects: These defects exist before the product is manufactured and involve an inherent flaw in the product’s design that makes it dangerous.
  2. Manufacturing defects: These defects occur during the production process and result in a product that deviates from its intended design, causing it to be unsafe.
  3. Failure to warn or inadequate labeling: These defects involve inadequate instructions or warnings that, if properly provided, would have informed the user of potential risks associated with the product.

The experienced attorneys at Laffey Bucci D’Andrea Reich & Ryan can assist you with your products liability claim by:

  1. Evaluating your case: We’ll assess the details of your injury and the defective product to determine the strength of your claim.
  2. Investigating the defect: Our team will thoroughly investigate the product’s design, manufacturing process, and history to identify any negligence or wrongdoing on the part of the responsible parties.
  3. Building a strong case: We’ll gather evidence, consult with experts, and develop a compelling case to prove that the defective product caused your injury.
  4. Negotiating settlements and representing you in court: Our attorneys will negotiate with insurance companies and, if necessary, represent you in court to fight for the compensation you deserve.

The compensation you may receive in a successful products liability claim can include:

  1. Medical expenses: Reimbursement for past and future medical costs related to your injury.
  2. Lost wages: Compensation for any wages you lost as a result of your injury, as well as any diminished earning capacity in the future.
  3. Pain and suffering: Compensation for the physical pain, emotional distress, and reduced quality of life caused by your injury.
  4. Punitive damages: In some cases, where the defendant’s conduct was particularly egregious, the court may award punitive damages to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar conduct in the future.

The statute of limitations for filing a products liability claim varies depending on your jurisdiction. In some cases, you may have as little as one year or up to several years to file a claim. It is essential to consult with an experienced attorney, like those at Laffey Bucci D’Andrea Reich & Ryan, to ensure you meet all filing deadlines and protect your right to compensation.
