Massachusetts Defective Product Lawyers
Manufacturers and store owners have a responsibility to consumers. They must ensure that the products they sell are neither defective nor inherently dangerous. If a dangerous or defective product injures a consumer, the manufacturer (and sometimes the designer, distributor, wholesaler, or retailer) is considered legally liable for product liability, as long as the consumer was using the product as it was meant to be used at the time of injury. Whether the product is a hairdryer or an automobile tire, manufacturers must make sure that products are designed and made safely, that quality control systems prevent defective products from entering the market, and that adequate directions and warning labels are available to protect consumers.
If you or a loved one has been seriously hurt due to a defective product, contact the defective product liability lawyers at Percy Law Group, PC, for a free consultation about your case.

Product liability resulting from automotive defects can cause accidents or decrease a vehicle's crashworthiness. Crashworthiness refers to a vehicle's ability to protect drivers and passengers during an accident. Vehicles may not be crashworthy due to manufacturing defects or design defects. An example of product liability would be a defective air bag that does not fully inflate. A defective air bag can cause serious injury and possibly cost lives. Defective seat belts also fall into this category. A seat belt restraint that does not function correctly can also cause serious injuries.
These products are supposed to help ensure safety to the passenger. If there is a defect due to the manufacturer, victims who suffer injury may have a product liability case and should contact an attorney. Other automotive defects such as bad brakes or defective tires may also make a crash more likely to happen in the first place. Vehicle manufacturers can be held responsible for product liability because they are responsible for the safety of their cars, trucks and SUVs whether they are aware of automotive defects or not.
