Product Liability


Every day you or a loved one can potentially use hundreds of products as you go about your daily routine. Although it may be a subconscious thought, the safety of these products is important and allows us to continue to enjoy activities and duties without being harmed.


However, product manufacturers sometimes release products to the market which do not meet safety requirements. Whether they’ve done this knowingly or unknowingly, they are responsible for any harm or wrongful death suffered as a result of an unsafe product under Massachusetts state law. Distributors, designers and other organizations or individuals involved in the supply chain can also held be responsible.


An unsafe product can be classified as one with malfunctioning parts or defects that directly lead to harm of a consumer. Oftentimes, a dangerous product can be the result of incomplete product research or subpar product design. In the event a consumer can prove a manufacturer released a product while knowing it presented danger, then a negligence case may be a reasonable route to take to recover damages.


Regardless of the industry, manufacturers are expected to produce products that meet all regulations and allow for complete consumer safety. However, product liability cases surface in just about any type of industry, from electronics to auto to pharmaceuticals. Here are some common products which have been at the center of product liability cases in the state of Massachusetts and around the country.

  • Accutane (acne medication)
  • Actos (oral diabetes drug manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceutical Company)
  • Auto parts (seatbelts, airbags, brakes, steering wheels, etc.)
  • Baby products
  • Bedding
  • Boats
  • Child seats/carriers
  • Clothing
  • Food
  • Furniture
  • Cosmetics
  • Electronics that cause shocks or fires
  • Hip implants
  • Household appliances
  • Ladders
  • Machinery (industrial)
  • Medical devices
  • Medications
  • Motorcycles
  • Neck stems
  • Power tools
  • Recalled medical devices
  • Sporting goods
  • Toys
  • Transvaginal mesh
  • Vehicles


Even when any of the above products are designed and manufactured properly, a product may still be considered hazardous. In this case, the manufacturer must prominently place a warning on the packaging or elsewhere so the consumer is aware before using the product. If a defective product causes harm or a sufficient warning wasn’t included with the product, the manufacturers will be held responsible for any harm caused to the consumer.


Product liability requires careful evaluation of the product and circumstances when preparing to file a lawsuit against a manufacturer. An experienced personal injury or wrongful death lawyer can help you if you think you or a loved one has been harmed due to a manufacturer’s defective or poorly designed product.

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.
