Creators, manufacturers, and salespeople of products have an obligation to their customers. When unsafe products are sold for consumption, they have the ability to cause severe, sometimes irreversible injuries. Despite the devastating impact they can have defective products are put out onto shelves every day, and every single day other defective products are pulled off of those shelves as well. Some of the most devastating injuries are caused by products that can combust or are a fire hazard (such as things fueled by gas or electricity), but there are plenty of severe injuries caused by other types of product malfunctions as well.
At Buckley Law Offices, we’ve spent over thirty years working as a team to help individuals like you (and groups in the form of class action lawsuits) pursue legal action against responsible individuals. If, during its intended use or while it was resting, a product injured you or a loved one, you can file a product liability claim against the manufacturer, seller, or distributor of that product. It does not matter if you were the product owner or an innocent bystander. You may be able to receive monetary compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
However, the liable party will fight this. Product manufacturers, sellers, and distributors usually have product liability insurance, and those insurance companies have near-unlimited resources at their disposal and like to keep their money right where it is. Even in the rare instance the product manufacturer, seller, or distributor does not have product liability insurance, they likely have factored into their cost of business the price of a lawyer in the case they are sued.
If you were injured and plan on filing a product liability claim, you need a law firm with a dedicated product liability team devoted to fighting for people like you every day. Don’t take a chance by hiring a personal injury lawyer with little or no experience in product liability. It is a complex form of law and commonly underestimated by inexperienced personal injury lawyers. We would like to use our extensive experience to help you and hold liable parties responsible for your damages.

Our product liability law team at Buckley Law Offices specializes in cases involving defective and dangerous products. One of the first actions we will take on your case will be to investigate the product and the potential defects as well as the cause of the defects. The answer to the question of who is at fault lies in determining the cause of the defect. Depending on that information, one or more parties may be liable, including but not limited to the:
If you or someone close to you were using a product for its intended purpose and you were injured by that product, a breach of warranty lawsuit may be a legal theory used to bring your lawsuit forth. Even though many breach of warranty suits are filed in the case of an existing written or expressed warranty, the law has a history of recognizing some instances of implied warranties.
Negligence product liability claims show that the defect in the product was caused by negligent actions on the part of at least one but sometimes several of the parties involved in the manufacturing chain of production.
In a strict liability situation, the injured party does not have to establish any negligence by the manufacturer, seller, or distributor. It only has to establish that the product was defective, and that this defect injured or killed you or a loved one.
Every single day products go onto store shelves despite featuring defects that could cause harm to the consumer, and every single day products are recalled off of those same shelves because that defect was discovered. Here are some examples of types of products that can be recalled for fire & burn hazards:
If you or a loved one has been burned or has died in a fire due to a product defect, contact Buckley Law Offices today so we can evaluate your case and advise you on your product liability lawsuit.
In the case of product liability law, we see many suits turn from a one-on-one affair into a full blown class action lawsuit. A class action lawsuit in the case of product liability law is a lawsuit that involves a number of people that have been injured by the same product. The injured parties unite together under one law firm, and that lawyer represents all of those parties in a single lawsuit against the manufacturer. The injured parties share legal expenses and split compensation if the suit is won or settled.
