Every day, the amount of products we use or consume is nearly limitless. As a consumer, you should feel confident that your safety is not compromised when using these products. However, at an increasing rate, products enter the market that can be harmful, causing injury or even death.


Have you or a family member been affected by a product defect? In the state of Massachusetts, a product can be considered defective for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Unsafe design
  • Improper installation
  • Poor instructions
  • Faulty repair
  • Faulty maintenance
  • Damaged in delivery
  • Hazardous materials
  • Absent warnings


Defective products cover just about anything you may use on any given day: food and beverage, clothes, medicine, medical devices, children’s toys, vehicles, packaged goods, equipment, furniture, appliances, household products.


A lot of the products we use on a daily basis, or at least some of their parts, are imported to the U.S. from foreign manufacturers. Unfortunately, this means companies may not have a close watch on the manufacturers making their products. This can lead to poor and unsafe product design—all going unnoticed until an individual is injured, sometimes fatally.


The U.S. government has taken steps to regulate overseas product development. However, due to the sheer volume of products and parts and manufacturers, it is extremely difficult to ensure products that enter the U.S. are truly ready to go to market. In Massachusetts, it is illegal for a company to sell a defective product.


Massachusetts state law provides protection for individuals who suffered injury or death at the fault of a product defect, also called a product liability case. Whether it’s determined the seller, manufacturer or distributor is at fault, the victim has a right to seek recovery of damages, including medical costs and lawyer fees.


As many of the products you may use are often produced by large corporations, the legal battle that ensues after a claim can be a daunting one. However, with expert legal representation, you can begin to take the steps necessary to recover damages from a product defect. Damages include financial compensation for medicals costs and pain and suffering that may have resulted from the defect.


The Law Office of Frank Fernandez is experienced in product defect law in Massachusetts. We’ve helped clients get what is rightfully theirs by careful and focused examination. Our team can help you gather the appropriate evidence to help show that an injury you may have suffered from using a product was in no way your fault. As mentioned above, corporations have unfortunately put unsafe products in front of consumers for years. In these instances, they should be held responsible and cover any expenses you’ve incurred as a result of their illegal and dangerous actions.


Do you think you have a case for a product defect? Let us help you evaluate your situation and put together a case that’ll help you recover damages, including financial compensation.

I am happy that I chose Frank to be my lawyer, and I will choose him again in the future. Although we agreed that I will pay him more money if my case went to trial, but he did his best to get my case dropped, and in fact the case was dismissed, and I didnt have to go through a trial or pay him extra money. He did all the work and all i had to do was showing up in court, I didnt need to speak a word. Very impressing, Frank is someone you can trust, and I respect him and his work

Very honest. Accepted my case while I was in NYC. Explained to me exactly what will happen at minimum cost. First time I can say I met an honest attorney. As a business and real estate in NYC, I retained many attorneys whose goal was to maximize their fees. Mr Fernandez was very reasonable and upfront honest with his fee. Very highly reccomend.

Frank Fernandez should be the first call anyone makes within the Boston area for legal representation. As a working professional, I made a horrible mistake and I was arrested with the potential of spending a lot of time in jail with the potential to have charges escalated. His efforts saved me a lot of potential pain and grief. He came to my rescue when I had no family locally to help me out of the situation my actions caused.I was fortunate that I found him out of the chaotic choices that are out there. Frank is professional and cares about all of the elements which affected the outcome of my case. My life and my career are back on track and I could not have done this without Frank's ability to react and change the course of difficult decisions. Trust, integrity, honesty, alongside the ability to dig deep, are just some of the characteristics of the person who accepted my case in the middle of the night.If you need a sanctuary when you can only see your life taking a change for the worse, call Frank and explain the elements of your case. I've got his card in my car, my wallet, my desk when I've got the potential for any type of legal action. I know he's someone that I can depend upon.I'm not posting for sake of Frank's business, I'm posting to convey my thanks for a difficult set of circumstances that I'll not face due to his ability to think quickly and make reliable decisions in spite of the issues that resulted from my actions.
