Defective Products

Defective Products - batteryIf you or a loved one has been injured by a product you purchased, including food products, home tools, beauty aids, children’s toys, medicines, medical products, vehicles or others, and the problem was caused by a mistake in the product’s manufacture, design or lack of proper instructions, the maker or supplier of that product may be liable for compensation to cure the damage suffered. Products should be safe when they enter the stream.

Companies Have a Responsibility to Keep Their Customers Safe

The historical records are full of defective products that injure people. Defectively designed cars that explode when struck in the rear, defective air bags that explode too hard and injure car occupants, medical products that cause harmful side effects, and dozens of other examples of products that were designed poorly or were not sufficiently tested before being put into the stream of commerce are altogether too common. Such defective products are a non-stop source of lawsuits as people seek compensation for injuries done to them by those they trusted, and even paid for products they believed would benefit their lives, and instead caused harm.

If you have been injured by a defective product, call an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss your injury and your options. You may be entitled to compensation from the product’s manufacturer or seller, or both.

How Can Comerford Law Firm Help if You Are Injured by Defective Products?

The last thing you need when you are injured is to deal with insurance adjustors asking for a statement about the accident, hospital billing staff asking how your bills will be paid, and all the other details that need to be taken care of after an accident happens. You should be spending your time recovering, not doing unfamiliar business. It’s a familiar business to us, and we can help relieve you of much of the stress that comes after an accident. Comerford Law Firm diligently and zealously represents clients who have been injured in traffic, slip-and-fall, animal attack and other types of accidents. We take over communication and negotiations with insurance companies and medical providers so that you can recuperate without having to worry about financial harm that might be a result of the accident.

Our System for Handling Defective Products Cases

Every accident case is different. Still, the steps involved in seeing to a fast and efficient recovery with the best physical and financial results are the same in most cases. When we represent a new client the first thing we do is ensure that he or she is getting the appropriate medical treatment, and that the treatment is being paid for so that our client will not have financial problems due to the injuries. Next we send a letter of representation to all related insurance companies and medical providers, instructing them to deal primarily with our firm and not disturb the client or his or her family. This instantly provides our clients with the peace of mind that they can concentrate on recovery while their case is being taken care of by caring and dedicated professionals who are looking out for their interests. While treatment continues we monitor the case and provide periodic updates to insurance providers so they will better understand the nature and extent of the injuries, providing a factual basis for later settlement negotiations. Communication with all parties is the key to successful resolution.

When treatment is finished we organize and prepare all the relevant police and medical records in a Demand Letter to the insurance company of the responsible party, summarizing the accident and the injuries and demanding a certain amount of money in settlement. We then negotiate with the company and do our best to negotiate a suitable settlement. We are proud of our record at settling cases before the need for lawsuits and litigation. Nevertheless, in those cases where negotiation does not succeed, such as when there is a genuine dispute over facts of the accident or the injuries, we are ready to file suit and take the case to the next level. It is important to note that because we take a limited number of cases each year, we are in regular communication with our clients. We always consult with them, explain their options, and make sure they are in informed agreement before taking any actions or making any settlement decision.


Never a fee until we win your case.
