Thousands of people are injured or killed each year by dangerous drugs, medical devices or defective consumer products that never should have been brought to market because they were unsafe.
If you or someone you love has been killed or injured after using a drug or product, the Rockville, Maryland, product liability lawyers at Blank, Moorstein & Lipshutz, L.L.P., will investigate and determine whether it caused your injury.
There are three basic types of defects that can determine product liability:
- Design defects — Examples include defective toys for small children with parts that can be swallowed or cause choking.
- Manufacturing defects — When defects occur during the production process and are often the result of poor quality control.
- Marketing or product use defects — A product that is known to be potentially dangerous but does not include warnings or instructions on how to safely use it can be considered defective.
Product liability cases are complex and can be difficult to win. Many times, the companies named in these lawsuits have extensive resources to defend against them.
At Blank, Moorstein & Lipshutz, L.L.P., our personal injury attorneys have shown they are not intimidated by deep-pocketed corporations backed by teams of lawyers. Our tenacious and tireless approach to preparing cases has produced numerous multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements against large companies.
