Rhode Island Defective Products Lawyer
Representing People Injured by Product Defects
If you’ve been seriously injured by a defective product, you have rights. When you use a product properly, you have a right to expect that it will not fall apart while you are using it or otherwise cause you to be injured.
I’m attorney Richard Tallo, an experienced personal injury trial lawyer, and I help clients throughout Rhode Island pursue compensation from the parties responsible for their defective product injuries.
If you’ve been injured by a product that malfunctioned, contact me at my offices in Providence to discuss what I can do to help you pursue money damages. I charge no attorneys fees unless I am successful at helping you recover compensation for your injuries.
Holding Manufacturers, Retailers and Distributors Accountable
Every day, at home and at work, we use products that — if they are not designed and manufactured carefully — could cause serious injuries. Keeping defective products from making their way to consumers is the responsibility of manufacturers, retailers and distributors.
Common types of products that can injured people include:
- Toasters and other kitchen appliances
- Ladders, chairs and other weight-supporting items
- Saws and other tools
- Industrial products
Taking Immediate Steps to Preserve Evidence
If you’ve been injured in a product-related incident, it is important to move quickly to gather evidence and determine whether you have a legal claim. Most importantly, you should preserve the product and its instructions. You should also immediately seek medical attention for your injuries.
To pursue your claim, we will need to show that you were not misusing the product and that it injured you because it was defective in its design, engineering or manufacture.
