Products liability is a branch of tort law that involves a complaint on behalf of a consumer against a product’s designer, manufacturer, or seller. A “tort” is a type of claim for money damages based on personal injury or property damage. These types of cases hold the defendant responsible for harm that the plaintiff suffered because of a product defect. The attorneys at BCH have represented plaintiffs in a wide range of product liability cases, from defective aeronautical charts to dangerous prescription drugs. A product can be deemed “defective” if its design, manufacturing process, or marketing was flawed.
If you were harmed by a dangerous or defective product, contact BCH today to discuss your potential financial recovery.
BCH exists not only to win cases on behalf of plaintiffs in product liability litigation, but also to make a difference in the lives of those plaintiffs. When we take on a client’s case, we get to know them personally, which is something we believe has a marked impact on the outcome of a case. When an injured individual comes to us to speak on their behalf, we take that charge seriously. If you were harmed, you deserve your day in court. We’d love to be there with you when that happens.

While some states start the clock for the statute of limitations in product liability cases the date the injury occurred, other states start the countdown from the date the plaintiff had a reasonable opportunity to discover the defect. From that point, a plaintiff usually has two years to file.
If you were injured by a defective product, you should contact us immediately to learn about the statute of limitations in your case and to make sure you can still take action before the statute of limitations expires. Once the time period for bringing a claim passes, it’s very likely your claim can never be recovered upon.

There are generally three types of defects that can lead to product liability claims: design defects, manufacturing defects, and marketing defects.
