Defective Products

From automotive parts to children’s toys to medical devices, defective products kill thousands of Americans and injure millions more each year, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

If you were hurt or a family member was killed due to a potentially defective product, the Boston attorneys at the Bershtein Law Center are here to help you recover the money you need to cope with medical expenses and other damages. Our lawyers have extensive experience in product liability law, and we offer free consultations to help you understand your options.

Products commonly identified in product liability lawsuits include:

  • Dangerous medications
  • Defective medical devices
  • Faulty motor vehicles and vehicle parts
  • Tainted food and beverages
  • Unsafe toys and other children’s products
  • Hazardous home furnishings and appliances
  • Toxic cleaning compounds and other chemical agents

Product liability cases can be more complex than other types of personal injury claims because they often involve large corporations with their own teams of attorneys, and they may include multiple at-fault parties.

Depending on the circumstances of the defect, responsible parties in product liability lawsuits may include:

  • Designers
  • Manufacturers
  • Retailers/sellers
  • Distributors
  • Marketers
  • Suppliers

The attorneys at the Bershtein Law Center are dedicated to protecting the rights of injury victims, including those harmed by defective products, and we have the experience and resources to fight big companies—and their insurance providers—on your behalf.


When a manufacturer, distributor or seller places a defective or dangerous product into the commercial world, they show an utter disregard for us and our families. We trust that products we use will be safe for us and our children, yet each year thousands of people are injured by faulty or unsafe products. Sadly, according to the Consumer Protection Safety Commission, 80 percent of fatalities associated with home appliances or furniture defects involve children younger than ten years old! We hold the deep conviction that people are more important than profit.


When you or someone you know is injured as a result of a dangerous or defective product, you can bring a legal claim against the manufacturer, distributor and/or seller of that product for monetary damages with a product liability lawyer. Make sure you call the Bershtein Law Center at (203) 624-5103 so we can protect you from being taken advantage of for injuries that occurred through no fault of your own.
