Washington DC Product Liability Lawyer
When you purchase a product from a store or online, you expect it to perform as intended. The last thing you expect is for the product to hurt you or someone you love. Far too often, however, consumer products cause serious and even life-threatening injuries. From motor vehicles and toys to electronics and home appliances, even the most innocuous and basic products can inflict severe harm.
Product liability claims come in several different forms. In some cases, an inherent design flaw makes a product unsafe for anyone to use. In other cases, a product is safe when used properly, but the manufacturer fails to include sufficient warnings instructing consumers about improper uses. Consumers have also been injured by products that were rendered unsafe during the manufacturing process.
Although any kind of product can cause an injury, product liability cases tend to fall into several distinct categories:
- Automobiles and auto parts cases
- Prescription medications
- Dietary supplements
- Medical devices
- Personal care products
- Tools, equipment, and industrial products
- Construction equipment
The Washington DC and Maryland lawyers at The Rich Firm, PC have a broad background in defective product cases. We have earned a reputation for taking on large multinational corporations and winning compensation for our clients and their families.
Leaders in Defective Medical Device and Prescription Drug Cases
Because many of our attorneys are also licensed doctors, we also devote a substantial portion of our defective products practice to helping people who have been hurt by defective medical implants and dangerous drugs.
The pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing industries are multibillion dollar industries that span the globe. Understandably, people who have been hurt by these products and medications are often confused about their rights and reluctant to challenge such a formidable opponent.
Because our lawyers bring an in-depth knowledge of medicine and patient care to our practice, we have achieved outstanding results for the clients we represent. We are not intimidated by the companies behind these products, and we consider it a privilege to stand up for people who have been hurt – sometimes catastrophically – by drug makers and medical device manufacturers that care more about their bottom line than helping patients.
