Boston Product Liability Lawyer
Manufacturers of products often fail to live up to their legal responsibility to produce a safe product. Design defects or faulty assembly can result in a catastrophic failure with devastating consequences for the user of the product and anyone in the vicinity.
I help victims of defective products obtain compensation for their injuries, financial losses and suffering. While some defective product injuries are relatively minor, others can have severe effects that affect the victim for life. In cases such as these, I do not believe in settling for less than full and complete compensation. My goal in every case is to obtain justice and the financial resources that can make the life of the victim and the victim’s family easier. I always seek to maximize the compensation my clients receive.
Choosing the Right Expert
Product liability cases often hinge on highly technical investigations of the causes of failure. To bolster their arguments, the lawyers on each side in a product liability lawsuit will hire expert witnesses who can illustrate in understandable terms how the failure occurred and who was truly responsible. It is not enough just to hire an expert or even the smartest expert. The knowledgeable product liability attorney will seek out the right expert for the task.
I have a demonstrated ability to seek out and engage the experts and specialists who can provide persuasive and compelling testimony. Chemical engineers, electrical engineers, toxicologists, pharmaceutical scientists — whatever the task, I choose the right experts — and they often provide the winning edge in product liability lawsuits.
Wellesley Design Defects Attorney
In one case, I represented a student who was using a hotplate to conduct a chemical experiment in his college laboratory. I showed that not only did the manufacturer of the hotplate design and build a defective product, the college was negligent too. I was able to obtain $900,000 in compensation for the student, who suffered burns and memory loss from inhaling toxic fumes. In another case, I obtained a $900,000 settlement for the injuries and partial paralysis that a teenager suffered in an SUV rollover was the result of a poor and dangerous vehicle design.
Even the simplest household product can lead to catastrophic injuries or a wrongful death. In these cases, you have one opportunity to obtain the justice and compensation you deserve. If I go to work for you, I pledge to seek maximum compensation — for you and your family’s future.
