Products Liability

Serving All Areas of Maryland, Washington, DC and Northern Virginia

Washington DC Products Liability LawyerThere is no question that America is a consumer-driven culture. From cars and toys to computers and hair dryers, consumer products are all around us. In most cases, they make life easier and more convenient.

When you bring a product into your household, you have every right to expect that it will function safely and as intended.

Unfortunately, products don’t always perform the way they are supposed to. In some cases, they can even cause serious and fatal injuries. At Mesirow & Associates, PLLC, we help individuals and families who have been harmed by a defective product.

Some of the main areas we serve can be found below:

  • Maryland
  • Washington, DC
  • Northern Virginia
The Products Liability Case We Handle

Products liability cases can involve practically any type of product you purchase online, in a store, or in a showroom. Although the majority of products you buy are required to undergo rigorous testing before they are permitted to hit store shelves, some defective products still manage to slip through the cracks.

There are several regulatory authorities that are empowered to issue recalls of dangerous products, including the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

However, recalls are usually only issued after one of these agencies has received a complaint or numerous complaints about a product causing injuries. When you are the one injured, a recall is little help or consolation.

At Mesirow & Associates, PLLC, we handle a wide range of defective product cases, including:

  • Automobiles and motorcycles
  • Lawn equipment
  • ATVs and motorbikes
  • Toys
  • Prescription medication
  • Over-the-counter medication
  • Medical implants and devices
  • Vitamins and supplements
  • Food
  • Electronics
  • Computers and smartphones
  • Exercise equipment
  • Machinery

If you have been hurt by a defective or dangerous product, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and other losses.

Types of Products Liability Lawsuits

When an individual is hurt by a dangerous or defective product, he or she may be able to file a lawsuit against several different parties, including:

  • The product’s designer
  • The product’s manufacturer
  • The entity that sold or marketed the product

In some cases, the defect is caused by more than one company or individual. From design to the store shelf, there can be dozens of companies or parties responsible for bringing a product to the marketplace.

Even in cases where a consumer was using a product incorrectly at the time of the accident, it may still be possible to recover damages for injuries caused by the product. Courts have ruled that injury victims can still pursue a products liability claim for their injuries as long as they were using a product in a reasonably safe manner.

These are complicated cases, so don’t assume that you do not have a claim. Many factors determine the viability of a claim. If you fail to seek the help and advice of an experienced washington dc products liability lawyer, you could miss your chance to get the compensation you deserve.

Client Reviews
John is phenomenal! His staff immediately took me under their wing and he truly became like family to me. A couple of years ago I was involved in an animal attack that truly changed my life. They maintained integrity and humanity in every way to properly navigate my ordeal. I cannot recommend this firm enough, hands down. Tiana Mapp
John is a gem and I'm tremendously glad that I connected with him. Wanting to put my accident behind me ASAP and minimize time and energy spent toward that end, I made the rookie mistake of attempting to settle on my own. I eventually reached an impasse with the insurance company but simply couldn't bring myself to accept their settlement offer. Drained by all the back-and-forth at this point, I didn't thoroughly research options (which is, ironically, a big part of my reason for not obtaining a lawyer in the first place - there are an overwhelming number of personal injury lawyers in the area!) and simply contacted the first lawyer from whom, simply put, I got a good Google vibe - enter John. That positive impression was immediately confirmed via our first phone call (for which he made himself available that very same day) and further cemented throughout subsequent meetings. John exceeded expectations in every metric, netting me over double the initial offer despite my less-than-ideal handling of everything at the outset. He answered every question I had with ease and honesty and was always available and communicative throughout the process. John is personable, compassionate, transparent, and very good at what he does! I can't recommend him highly enough - hope to never need him again but if so, he will now be my first text!
