Product Liability

Representing Individuals Hurt By Dangerous Or Defective Products

When you purchase an appliance, toys for your children or an automobile, you expect that there were numerous safety checks before the item hit the market. Unfortunately, we often hear about products that have defects that are not identified for months or, in some cases, years after a product was available for sale.

Common causes:

  • Manufacturing defects
  • Inaccurate or misleading descriptions of products
  • A product that negatively affects the health of its user

Like most personal injury cases, your product liability case will most likely settle out of court with an agreement that satisfies both parties. In Maryland, Morris Margulies can get you the compensation you deserve for the following consequences of a defective product injury:

  • Lost wages and future income
  • Pain, suffering and mental distress
  • Funeral costs (in the event that a loved one passes)
  • Medical bills
  • Property damage

Claims of negligence include the fact that it is the manufacturer’s duty to make sure the products produced and released to the public are safe for their usage.

To prove your claim, you must establish that:

  • The manufacturer did not carry out this duty and responsibility
  • The manufacturer’s negligence was the cause for the consumer’s injury
  • The product caused a substantial amount of damage to the consumer

Appliances in your home can have electrical issues that can cause fires resulting in burns or property damage. If your automatic brakes fail, you could be involved in a Maryland or Washington, D.C., car accident and suffer crippling injuries including paralysis or severed limbs. Manufacturers are responsible for injuries that consumers suffer when a product is found to be defective.
