Massachusetts law requires that manufacturers, sellers and even some non-sellers of products ensure that their products are safe and are not in any way defective or dangerous to users. Companies must provide proper warning if any part of their product may be unsafe or if using the product in a certain way may be hazardous to the user’s safety or health. When a defective product causes injury or death, or a defective drug causes serious side-effects, the manufacturers and other parties in the distribution chain may be liable for damages.
At Raphaelson, Attorneys At Law, we provide legal services in product liability cases at a high level of skill and sophistication, engaging qualified experts in medical, engineering and other appropriate disciplines to obtain just compensation for our clients injured by defective products or drugs.
Medical malpractice is negligence or deviation from the expected standard of care on the part of a doctor or other health care provider. When a health care provider departs from accepted medical practice, and injury or death of a patient occurs as a result of that deviation from the standard of care, the health care provider may be held liable for his or her conduct. The patient may be entitled to recover for past and future pain and suffering, medical expenses, and loss of earnings. Family members may be able to recover for their losses, including loss of consortium or companionship.
At Raphaelson, Attorneys At Law, we help our clients recover compensation so that they can afford the care they need and can begin to recover from their loss. We work with leading experts in the medical profession to help understand and prove our clients’ claims. We work hard to meticulously prepare each case for trial and to provide sustainable financial and, where appropriate, long-term care solutions for our clients.
