Experienced DC Product Liability Lawyers Representing Injured Victims of Defective Products

Every consumer should have a reasonable expectation that the products they and their families use will be safe and free from dangerous defects.  Unfortunately, millions of people are injured each year when using a dangerous or defective product.  If you have been injured, or if you have suffered the wrongful death of a loved one, as a result of using a defective consumer product, a Washington DC product liability lawyer with the reputable law firm of Jacoby & Meyers can help you get the compensation you need to recover from you injury or loss.  Filing a product liability lawsuit against negligent product designers, manufacturers, retailers, and others can send a clear message that unsafe products and shoddy workmanship will not be tolerated.

For more than forty years, the product liability lawyers at Jacoby & Meyers have represented people injured by dangerous products.  Our DC product liability attorneys have the resources and experience necessary to successfully litigate against large corporations and hold them accountable for poor design, lack of quality control, and other factors which contribute to an unsafe product’s availability in the marketplace.

 

What is Product Liability?

Product liability refers to the responsibility of those involved in the production and sale of a consumer product to ensure that the product will safely function as intended.  An injured consumer may file a product liability lawsuit against any entity involved in making the dangerous product available.  Liable parties may include engineers, designers, manufacturers, marketers, wholesalers, distributors, and retailers.  An experienced Washington DC product liability attorney can closely evaluate your injury claim to determine who may be liable for your injuries, and can aggressively pursue compensation from those responsible for your suffering or loss.

Product liability lawsuits may be based on negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty.

  • Negligence:  the failure of anyone involved in the production or distribution of a product to exercise due caution to ensure a product’s safety
  • Strict Liability:  the consumer was injured by a product that was defective upon leaving a manufacturer’s control; it is not necessary to prove any party’s negligence in a strict liability claim
  • Breach of Implied or Express Warranties: when a product does not comply with express or implied warranties that a product will function safely when used as intended
