Product Injury

Product Defect Attorney Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia

Product Defect Attorney Washington DC

If you or someone you love has been injured because of a product defect, or if someone close to you has died because of this, it may be in your best interest to discuss your situation with a product defect attorney Washington DC Maryland and Virginia residents can rely on.

Product defects can be extremely dangerous, especially because they have the potential of harming or injuring large numbers of people. Any injury caused by a product defect should be brought to the attention of a product defect law firm right away so that the proper steps are taken to find the source of the defect and make sure it is corrected right away so that more people are do not become injured.

By definition, a “product” is any article or substance that is manufactured or refined for sale. This means that products can include food, clothing, medicine, cleaning supplies, toys, home appliances, and cosmetics, as well as the ingredients and components used to build each final product.

The laws in each state are different, but in general, there are four theories that drive most product liability cases: Negligence, Breach of Warranty, Misrepresentation and Strict Liability.

Negligence, or the failure to exercise reasonable care, can occur in the production, design or assembly stage of a product, and therefore can make the manufacturer liable for any injuries that are caused by a faulty or defective product.

Breach of warranty occurs when the seller fails to uphold a promise, claim or representation made of a product.

Misrepresentation occurs in the advertising or promotion of a product, often by highlighting the potential benefits of the product while drawing attention away from the hazards of use.

Strict liability extends the responsibility of the vendor or manufacturer to anyone who might be injured by the defective product, regardless of fault.

Products defects can occur during any stage of production. This is one of the many reasons that product liability cases can be difficult to pursue. If you or someone close to you has been injured because of a faulty product, you may find it helpful to discuss your situation and to learn about your rights from highly rated personal injury lawyers Washington DC residents are fortunate to have access to.

During the design process, failure to detect a design flaw can cause a product to be inherently dangerous or defective. This means that even if the product is manufactured perfectly, the flaw in design will cause the product to be defective. Design defects can include a specific model of a car that has a tendency to flip or an appliance that has a tendency to explode.

During the manufacturing process, failure to properly build a product can cause the product to become defective. Sometimes, this means that only a few of a batch of products exhibits a particular defective trait, other times it means that a whole batch of product is faulty.

During the labeling and advertising process, failure to properly warn or instruct consumers of dangers in using the product can make a product defective. This often means that risks associated with using a product are not mentioned on product warnings or in the instructions.

Damages resulting from product defects can be as harmless as not obtaining the results you expected to extremely dangerous, causing serious injuries, illness, or wrongful death.

Defective product cases can also be extremely difficult to win. Not only can it be difficult to prove where the defect occurred, but product regulations can also vary amongst states. Many times, the victim will be up against a large corporation with the resources, expertise, and motivation to fight the claim – even where fault is clear. These are just a few reasons it is important to seek legal representation if you’ve been injured because of a defective product.

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. Siri Palm 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.
