Effectively Handling Defective Product Cases
The more serious the injuries, the more you need a law firm that knows how to effectively handle the various issues arising from a product liability case. A defective product may be the sole cause of your injuries, but often product liability is part of another accident. At Boynton, Waldron, Doleac, Woodman & Scott, P.A., in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, our attorneys work for our clients' best interests.

Defective products are usually defective before they ever reach the consumer. Most defects are designed or manufactured into the product. In some cases, defective installation at a work or home site may make the product dangerous.
Defective products cause serious injuries. When you tell us about an accident — such as a car accident, a motorcycle accident or a slip and fall accident — we will look beyond the obvious, because our personal injury lawyers want you to have all the benefits available to you. An exploding battery, construction equipment, a defective stroller, an exploding generator, or defective auto parts can be the cause of an accident or make a bad accident worse.
A workplace accident may involve product liability. If you were injured in an accident at work, your claim will be eligible for workers' compensation. But there may be other options for recovery. In addition to a workers' comp claim, you might be able to obtain compensation from a defective product manufacturer. Examples: an office chair that fell apart at the base, an electrical transmission wire that caused electrical shock, or chemicals that caused an explosion or chemical burns.
An accident at home may be the subject of an additional claim for product liability. If a hot water heater exploded and injured someone, for example, your homeowners policy should provide coverage. But you could have an additional claim against the manufacturer.
Why maximize claims? Serious, traumatic injuries cause pain and suffering. They also cause considerable financial losses — medical bills, time lost from work or school, burdens for the family, rehabilitation, physical therapy, special equipment and ongoing medical care.
