Product Liability

Maryland Product Liability Lawyers

Not everything is what it seems. An apparently harmless product you purchased on the market and used as intended, such as a lawn mower or a food processor, can turn out to be a nightmare item. This can be due to a flaw or defect in either the design or the manufacturing. If you or a loved one has been injured as the result of a defective product, you may be entitled to seek damages from the manufacturer or distributor of that product. For a prompt and efficient evaluation of your claim, contact us at the law firm of Joseph, Greenwald & Laake, P.A. in Greenbelt, Maryland.

Our experienced and knowledgeable attorneys have successfully represented many clients in a similar situation. We have the skills and resources to thoroughly investigate each claim, to examine the design, manufacture, and functioning of the product in question, and to place liability where it belongs: squarely at the feet of the designer, manufacturer, or distributor.

Some common examples of defective products include:

  • Pharmaceutical drugs (Vioxx, Bextra, etc.)
  • Automobile design (SUV rollovers, gas tank fires, etc.)
  • Automobile components (tires, seatbelts, child seats, etc.)
  • Household appliances (ovens, dishwashers, etc.)
  • Electronic goods (stereo systems, television sets, etc.)
  • Construction defects (poor design, dangerous materials, poor workmanship, etc.)
  • Hazardous materials (toxic chemicals, poisonous substances, etc.)

The recent class action lawsuit against the Ford Motor Company is a prime example of a defective product liability case in which our law firm has been involved. This case was the largest class action against a major automobile manufacturer in history. The New York Times cited principal and manufacturing defect lawyer Steve Pavsner’s deposition of Ford President Jacques Nasser as a major factor in Ford’s decisions to settle the case after years of litigation.  The settlement allowed millions of consumers nationwide to obtain extended warranties and reimbursements from Ford.
