You should be able to assume that a new product will work as intended, without risk of harm to yourself or others. However, the damage a defective product may inflict can range from minor injury to death. If anyone is injured when manufacturers fail to warn consumers or ensure that their products are safe, the manufacturer should be held accountable for their actions.
How exactly to go about filing a products liability claim in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts may be unclear in the aftermath of a defective product injury. That’s where qualified defective product attorneys come in. We can help you hold the manufacturer accountable for your pain, suffering, and financial damages. While no amount of money can erase the suffering the dangerous product caused, financial compensation can help your family to move past this difficult time.
At Jason Stone Injury Lawyers, our Massachusetts team of product liability lawyers are here to help you and your family get the maximum compensation for your claim, at no risk to you. In fact, we operate on a contingency fee basis which means that we get paid only after you get paid.

Types of Defective Products
Almost any type of product you can think of can be dangerous when it has design or manufacturing defects, even when used as directed. Government agencies monitor defective products and issue thousands of recalls annually in order to protect consumers. Unfortunately, these recalls are often “too little too late” for consumers who have already been hurt by these products.
Items commonly involved in product liability lawsuits include:
- Unsafe toys or other children’s products
- Tainted food and beverages
- Toxic cleaning compounds or other chemicals
- Faulty motor vehicles and/or vehicle parts
- Hazardous home appliances and furnishings
- Defective medical devices
- Dangerous medications
Whether you or a member of your family has been injured by a product with manufacturing defects or another defective product, you may be able to recover compensation for what you have suffered.
Jason Stone Injury Lawyers is here to help. We have extensive experience with Massachusetts product liability law. When we take on your case, your Massachusetts defective product lawyer can give you the legal advice and assistance that can truly make a difference.
Proving Fault in Massachusetts Product Liability Cases
There are several factors involved in trying to prove that a person or entity is responsible for your injuries after using their product. First of all, was the product’s design, creation, or warning lacking in some way?
The product was faultily designed. In order to prove that the item’s design itself was faulty, you must show that there were design flaws present that made it unreasonably dangerous.
The product was faulty due to the creation stage of production. Alternatively, you would need to prove that in the course of the product’s creation, there were manufacturing errors or production contamination that made the product dangerous.
The product’s manufacturers or distributors failed to adequately warn consumers. It is also possible that the product caused harm since there were not adequate warnings about the product’s risks, inadequate instructions provided, or misleading marketing claims made.
How product use caused injury
Once the above has been identified, the key elements of your claim can also be established:
- The product was used for its intended purpose
- Use of the product resulted in injury and/or monetary loss
- The product is defective due to design flaw, manufacturing defects, failure to warn, or failure to provide adequate warnings
- The product’s defect directly contributed to the injury
The next major step would be figuring out who can be held liable in this defective product claim. Massachusetts product liability laws can be more complex than other types of personal injury claims. Some products may have been manufactured by large, powerful corporations, or multiple parties may share culpability.
Identifying the liable party or parties

What to Know About MA Defective Product Law
When you hear about a product liability lawsuit, you may assume that it is a last resort for people who have tried everything on their own. This may sometimes be true, but lawsuits can be a valuable legal protection.
The insurance company may offer you an amount that is well below what your claim is actually worth. They may be unwilling to offer a fair amount by negotiations. Personal injury lawsuits, though, can ensure that you are not taken advantage of by the perpetrators or insurance companies.
That’s where a defective product attorney comes in. Manufacturers who failed to warn consumers of their defective products must be held accountable for their actions, and defective product attorneys can make sure this is possible. Jason Stone Injury Lawyers can determine how much your case is truly worth and how to get you that amount.
Defective product lawyers often work on a contingency fee basis, and Jason Stone Injury Lawyers is no exception to the rule. Our attorneys only get paid after you get paid. Your payment may come in the form of an out-of-court settlement or as a court ruling. Either way, our defective product injury attorneys will be by your side each step of the way.
