Connecticut Defective Products Lawyers

The makers of manufactured items are required by law to ensure that their products are safe for use. This also applies to distributors, marketers, and others involved in the supply chain. When a product causes injury or death because of a defect in its design or manufacture, users injured by the product may be able to file a claim for damages.

Helping clients obtain compensation since 1983

At the New Milford, Connecticut, law firm of Guendelsberger Law Offices, LLP, our attorneys have handled many defective product cases. In the years since our founding in 1983, we have earned a reputation for obtaining results for clients because of our thorough preparation and vigorous advocacy. If you believe you have been injured or if a family member has been killed because of a defective product, contact a member of our legal team to learn about your options.

Examples of product defect cases

Our cases have involved many different types of consumer and industrial products, including:

  • Baby food
  • Medical and therapeutic equipment
  • Packing and palletizing machines
  • Teething rings
  • Mistakes and omissions in food labeling
  • Lack of guards and shutoff switches in industrial machines
  • Seat belt and air bag failure
  • Defective toys
  • Lead paint on toys

Thorough preparation and a willingness to try cases is critical

Our lawyers know how to develop a strong defective products case. We assume that every case will proceed to trial and prepare accordingly. Opposing attorneys and insurance companies know that we are always willing to try product defect cases; this encourages them to offer a fair settlement. When the proposed settlement is inadequate, we encourage our clients to go to trial. In many cases, we have been able to obtain significantly more compensation at trial for our clients than they would have received through settlement or than the amount offered for settlement.
