Massachusetts Product Liability Lawyers
Legal help when you are harmed by an unsafe product
You reasonably assume the products you use will not harm you. When this assumption proves to be false and a product does injure you, you may have a right to compensation. Products liability firm Ellis & Rapacki LLP can help you recover the compensation to which the law entitles you.
Statute of limitations
Consult an attorney as soon as possible after you have been injured by a product. By immediately investigating your claim and preserving crucial evidence while it is still fresh, your attorneys can gain valuable advantage when it comes to proving your case. Another reason why speed is important is that Massachusetts law stipulates that you must file your claim within three years after the injury was or should have been discovered. By missing this window of opportunity, known as the statutory deadline, you lose your right to recover compensation for your injuries.
Strict liability standard
Massachusetts law recognizes the right of consumers to purchase and use products with the expectation that they are safe. Through application of the strict liability doctrine, our attorneys can recover compensation from a manufacturer of an unreasonably dangerous product even without proving the company acted negligently. Our product liability attorneys have 75 years of combined experience and use methodical discovery techniques to establish that a defect in the product caused your injuries.
Resources to defend your rights
We have the resources and skills to defend your rights against large companies. With assistance from qualified medical professionals, our attorneys thoroughly investigate each case to plan the most effective strategies. Because we believe that all injured people have the right to competent representation, we accept cases on contingency, meaning that we do not seek payment until we win your case.
