Product Liability

Injured by a Defective Product? We can Help

Manufacturers and corporations do not always make safety a top priority. Often, products ranging from prescription drugs to heavy manufacturing equipment contain serious flaws that make them dangerous. An action for product liability can be brought against the product manufacturer, a parts manufacturer, wholesaler, retailer, and other potential defendants.

If you or a loved one suffered harm as a result of a defective or dangerous product, our Cranston product liability lawyer can help you fight for your rights. We make it our mission to hold the responsible parties accountable for your injuries and the resulting consequences, including ongoing medical treatment, surgeries, lost income, reduced earning capacity, pain, suffering, and more.

Reach out to our firm today to schedule your free, initial case evaluation. Call our office at (401) 228-7470 to get started.

Three Common Types of Defective Products
  • Defective Product Design: A case can be made for defective design when the product or item is inherently dangerous. The infamous Ford Pinto is a famous example of defective design. The gas tank of the Pinto was placed dangerously close to the rear bumper and could potentially explode in a rear-end impact. Given the frequency of rear-end accidents, this design was inherently dangerous and defective.

  • Defective Product Manufacturing: Defective manufacturing occurs when a safely designed product is assembled improperly. For example, every lawnmower that comes off the assembly line is supposed to be assembled to exact specifications. If one lawnmower somehow comes off the line with the blades improperly installed the manufacturer will be liable if the device causes injury.

  • Inadequate Warning or Instruction: When a manufacturer sells a potentially dangerous product they have an obligation to warn the consumer about the danger. If someone is hurt by the product because they lacked adequate warning, the manufacturer may be liable for damages.

Examples of Defective Products

Hundreds or thousands of items are recalled every year because of potential dangers in the design or manufacture. We often hear of dangers surrounding children's toys, leading to a mass recall.

While too numerous to list the thousands of potentially defective products, some examples are:

  • Drugs and pharmaceuticals with extremely dangerous or unknown side effects
  • Unsafe toys (i.e. choking hazard, lead paint, etc.)
  • Medical equipment malfunction
  • Airbag or seatbelt failure
  • Child seats or cribs that do not meet recognized standards
  • Contaminated food

Any product that causes harm can be the basis for a product liability claim. If you have been injured by a product that you believe is defective contact our office for a free consultation. Our Cranston product liability lawyer can answer your questions and help you understand your legal options.

"Joe asked me what I wanted in settlement during one of our meetings. I told him I wanted my medical bills paid (about $12,000) and I wanted $10,000 in my pocket. We just settled for $100,000! I never thought my case was worth that much. Thank you so much Joe." Justine D.
"Joseph is an excellent attorney that has been handling everything for the accident I was involved in. Joe has a great understanding of the auto accident process and he was able to explain it to me in a way that I understood. To this point, everything that Joe explained to me has happened according to plan. I have found Joe to be extremely knowledgeable and honest, and would highly recommend him to anyone." Steve C.
"Attorney Lamy answered my initial inquiry personally. He was very attentive and made himself available throughout the course of my case.

"I've never dealt with lawyers before, until I was involved in an accident. I wasn't sure if I even had a case, but I'll tell you what, Joe was there for me every step of the way. He was open, honest and caring. He answered all my questions and was always there for me when I needed him. He ensured me he would take care of everything and not to worry, and he did! I couldn't have asked for a better settlement or lawyer. He went above and beyond!!!!" Danny S.
