Defective Child Products
At the Law Offices of John C. Manoog, III, our dedicated Cape Cod product liability lawyers represent people harmed by unsafe commercial goods. In many cases, children are hurt in accidents caused by defective toys and other products, leaving their parents searching for answers and justice. We have over 146 years of combined legal experience in personal injury cases and a long track record of asserting the rights of our injured clients and their families to the fullest extent of the law. We understand the devastating impact of an accident upon a child’s life and future, as well as the heavy burdens that it may impose on the child’s family.Holding Manufacturers Accountable for Defective Child Products
If your child has been hurt by a defectively designed or manufactured product, you have the right to seek compensation from a manufacturer, retailer, distributor, or any other entity that may have been responsible. The compensation available in these cases is intended to cover medical costs and related bills, your child’s pain and suffering, and any future costs and losses. In the tragic event that a child loses their life in an accident involving a defective product, their family may bring a wrongful death claim to seek compensation.
Product defects come in several types. A product may have been designed or manufactured with flaws in it that cause the product to malfunction when it is used. For example, a toy may have left the assembly line without going through an important part of the process, or the manufacturer may have used an unsafe material in making the product when a safer alternative was available. Or the manufacturer may have failed to adequately warn parents about the risks related to using the product, such as choking risks for young children playing with small toys.
In any of these cases, the retailer who sold the product is likely to be considered liable under Massachusetts’ implied warranty of merchantability. Any item sold in the state comes with an implicit guarantee that it can reasonably safely serve the expected use for which it is sold. To prove liability under the warranty of merchantability, the parents bringing the claim need to show that the child was using the product in a way that was foreseeable, the product was unreasonably dangerous, and the defect caused the accident in which the child was hurt.Discuss Your Product Liability Claim with a Cape Cod Lawyer
