Massachusetts Defective Product Lawyer
Manufactured products are supposed to be safe when used for their intended purpose. When they cause you injury or death, you or your family may be able to seek compensation and damages for expenses and losses.

Raipher, P.C. attorneys advocate for clients who were injured by defective products. These cases can be challenging because the required standard of proof is usually very high. Our law firm has the experience and knowledge needed to prevail.

What Your Product Liability Lawyers Will Do
Our lawyers must demonstrate that the client’s damages and losses were the result of using the product and that they were caused by a defect. It is up to the plaintiff and his or her attorney to identify the defect, which could be in the design, the manufacture, the components, the packaging or the warnings and instructions accompanying the item. This often requires us to consult with engineers, designers and specialists in the intended field of use. Because of the investigation and consulting required, these cases can be complex and expensive, but our lawyers have the knowledge and resources to see them through.
