Maryland, Virginia, And Washington, D.C. Dangerous & Defective Products Attorney
Put Your Trust In Our Experience
You count on product manufacturers to ensure their products are safe before selling them, but that doesn’t always happen. Whether the defect was deliberately concealed or was the result of negligence is of little relevance to you when you are dealing with serious injuries or even the death of a loved one. Wingfield & Ginsburg will work hard on your behalf to make sure that those responsible for your injuries or the death of a family member are held accountable.
Product Liability Defined
The United States Consumer Safety Commission (CPC) estimates that defective products have claimed the lives of over 20,000 people and injured another 30 million since the CPC began keeping records. Injuries reported to the CPC by consumers include loss of limbs, paraplegia, blindness, deafness and other devastating conditions.
Product manufacturers have a legal and moral obligation to warn consumers of any dangers they face by using their products. Even if a product is knowingly dangerous, the manufacturer could still be held liable if it did not take enough steps to prevent consumer injury. Under product liability law, it is irrelevant if the manufacturer showed negligence or used great care when constructing a product. If it injured a consumer, the manufacturer will most likely be held liable.
Products that Cause Injuries
Any consumer product has the potential for causing serious injuries or death if used incorrectly or manufactured improperly, but there are some that lead to problems more often than others. Children’s toys, household appliances and personal automobiles are at the top of the list, but our Maryland, Virgina and Washington D.C. law firm can help you regardless of how you were injured.
