Dangerous products and defective products at home and at work can cause serious injuries
If you have been hurt by a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering as well as for certain other damages. The product could be a machine at work, a tool of your trade, a product in your home, etc. Certain medical products can also be defective such as breast implants and hip and knee prostheses. If you had a hip, knee or shoulder implant which is not working correctly, it may be that the implant itself was defective. We have access to numerous medical and biomechanical professionals who can evaluate your potential claims in this regard.
We handled a case involving a young lady who worked as a bartender and as a masseuse. While removing a cap from a bottle of vodka, the top of the bottle broke off and cut her hand causing her severe injuries, which effectively prevented her from continuing to work as a masseuse. We obtained a six figure settlement for her after filing suit but before trial. Please call us if you have had an injury as a result of a defective product.
We handled another case where a three-year-old child was able to get into a cabinet under a sink where his mother stored various cleaning products including furniture polish. Because of the defective manufacture of the plastic top to the bottle of furniture polish, the child was able to remove the top to the bottle and drank some of the furniture polish causing him severe injuries, including chemical pneumonia. After filing suit, the case settled quickly and as part of the settlement, the company agreed to modify the design and materials used for the caps to their bottles of furniture polish.
