DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS                                                                         jmaherlaw.com

The Law Office of Joseph C. Maher represents individuals and families in “product liability” lawsuits involving injuries, catastrophe, or death caused by defective products.

These cases can be filed against all businesses in the chain of commerce, including: manufacturers, component part makers, suppliers, wholesalers and retailers.These lawsuits can also include breach of warranty and claims against maintenance companies for faulty repairs. Defective products are often sold as safe by deceptive advertising, but internal company documents reveal the manufacturer knew of the dangers and failed to warn or change the design....placing profits over safety.
