Product Liability

Connecticut Product Liability Lawyers

Several of the attorneys at the Bridgeport, Danbury or Middletown personal injury law firm of Adelman Hirsch & Connors LLP have published and lectured on legal and evidentiary issues in product liability law. If you or anyone in your family has been injured by a dangerous or defective product, contact us for a free consultation.

With the assistance of technical experts from many disciplines, our attorneys can investigate and litigate claims for personal injury or wrongful death damages on a wide range of defective product claims. These include:

Automotive Products: People may be injured by poorly designed headrests, airbags, child safety seats, and uncrashworthy structural components. In both car and truck accidents, we routinely consider whether defective automotive components might have played a role in causing the crash, or in making the injuries worse than they otherwise would have been.

Industrial Machinery and Equipment: Defects in the design or manufacture of heavy construction or industrial equipment such as cranes or forklifts can result in severe or fatal injuries to the person pinned, crushed, or struck by dangerous machinery. Product liability damages might also be available against the manufacturers or distributors of defective tools or safety equipment.

Household and Consumer Goods: We represent persons with product liability claims. Defective products include space heaters, grills, sporting goods, toys, security systems, electronic devices and batteries, bicycles, or other hazardous consumer products.

Medical Devices: We also pursue damages claims on behalf of persons injured by defective medical devices.

In any product liability case, we move quickly to preserve and analyze the physical evidence. As the claim proceeds, we can reconstruct the documentary history of the product from design to market. In some cases, we find evidence of a rejected safety feature or ignored warnings of a possibly dangerous defect. Our experience with the investigation and proof of product liability claims can make the decisive difference in your case.
