Whether in the home or at your workplace, you should be able to rely on the products you use to do their job safely and effectively. What happens when you’re injured due to a defective product? In most cases the victims tend to blame themselves. They may feel they used the product wrong or that it was in some way their fault that the product malfunctioned. That is not true.

Donohue is here to assist you in making sure that you do not blame yourself for something beyond your control.
Not Just Your Responsibility
While you should be cautious to use the product as it is intended, the distributor and manufacturer also have an obligation to you as the consumer to ensure their products are not defective. They have a responsibility to make sure that their products are ready to go and have passed strenuous testing and use before being put on the market. That is not your fault. You are not responsible for the distributors mistakes. This is where your Boston personal injury attorney comes in.
There are typically two major claims against the distributor in a personal injury claim because of defective products. One is due to a defective design that has caused injury due to negligence or even a breach of the warranty. The breach happens if a product is not designed to be safe for the use it was intended. Negligence comes into play when the creator should have known better that the product was not safe but failed to do anything to reduce or completely remove the danger.
