When a product is on store shelves and available for purchase, consumers have a reasonable expectation that the product is safe to use and will not cause harm. From pharmaceutical drugs and power tools to kids’ toys and car parts, consumers rely upon a nearly countless number of products in their daily lives. When a product causes injury, you likely will have many questions, including How did this product make it to the marketplace if it is dangerous? Shouldn’t someone have known about the dangers and warned me? Why was this defective product still available for sale? What are my legal rights as an injured person? Product liability attorney Paul Ganim at Ganim Legal, P.C., has extensive knowledge of product liability laws. He has helped Connecticut accident victims for nearly 25 years and has handled many types of defective product cases. Our law firm offers free initial consultations, and you can schedule yours by calling 203-864-6625. We can talk to you about how the accident occurred, the types of injury or injuries you suffered and how the defective product has affected your life.
Dangerous products can cause serious, life-altering injuries or result in fatalities. While there are a virtually limitless number of products that we use in our daily lives, many of our product liability cases involve:
- Children’s toys
- Medical devices
- Contaminated food
- Auto parts, including brakes, seat belts and air bags
- Power tools
- Household appliances
It is no secret that insurance companies are not on your side. As an injured person, you deserve to have someone on your side. You deserve an advocate who will fully investigate your claim as well as collaborate with experts — including those in medicine, engineering, product design and marketing — to strengthen your claim for compensation.
Most product liability cases arise from:
- Defective product design
- Manufacturing error
- Failure to warn consumers about potential hazards
As a personal injury lawyer, Paul Ganim advocates for negotiated settlements that adequately compensate our injured clients for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Many times we are able to obtain maximum compensation without the need for trial, but we do not back down from going to trial when it is best for our client.
Ganim Legal, P.C., in Bridgeport, Connecticut, offers free initial consultations to discuss potential claims. We also handle all personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis — if we do not win your case, you will not owe us attorney’s fees. To learn more, call us at 203-864-6625 or contact us online.
