Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Faulty or Malfunctioning ProductEven though there are many laws in place to protect consumers from defective and faulty products that cause injuries, the need for a reliable product defect law firm Maryland residents can rely on is on the rise. There are countless products that consumers can purchase to make their lives better, more enjoyable, healthier, and more organized, to name just a few of the kinds of things that U.S. consumers are accustomed to buying. Unfortunately, these items and more are not always safe, and sometimes people suffer harm as a result of using them.

Three Theories of Recovery for Product Liability Claims

The idea of product liability laws are to encourage businesses to take the precautions necessary to ensure that their products are safe, and to hold these companies financially responsible when someone is hurt because of flaws in them.

Product liability laws differ from state to state but in general, there tend to be three potential theories of recovery that an injured consumer can assert against a manufacturer.

Negligence A victim of an injury from a defective or malfunctioning device can claim that one or
more of the parties involved in the design, engineering, production, distribution and in some
cases, the seller, was negligent in their part of making a product, and the victim’s injury is a result
of this negligence. Companies are required to use reasonable measures when creating,
producing, and inspecting products before placing them on store shelves. As well, these
companies are responsible for providing instructions for safe use, and warnings of any hazards or
potential dangers using their product might bring.

If you have been injured in Maryland or in the surrounding states, you may find it helpful to discuss your situation and the different theories of recovery you may be able to pursue, with a product defect law firm Maryland product defect injury victims recommend.

Breach of Warranty This theory of recovery is based in contract law. When a company makes a
product available for consumers to purchase, they are supposed to provide the consumer with
certain express and implied warranties that ensure its quality and safety. If the product is unsafe
and injures a consumer as a result of this, these warranties have been breached.

Strict Liability This is a form of tort action that requires the consumer (the injured plaintiff) to
show that the product was defective. Maryland and many other states require that the plaintiff
prove that:
– The product was dangerous in an unreasonable way
– The product was defective when it left the manufacturer’s or seller’s control
– There was no substantial change in the product’s condition prior to its reaching
the consumer
– The product’s defect cause the victim’s injuries

A plaintiff filing a complaint can do so to seek recovery based on multiple, independent theories of recovery. It can be one or more the ones mentioned here, and in other states, there can be different variations on these theories.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
