D.C. Products Liability Lawyer Helps the Injured Pursue Justice
Washington attorney provides legal help when you are harmed by an unsafe product
You reasonably assume the products you use will not harm you. When this assumption proves to be false and a product does injure you, you may have a right to compensation. The Law Offices of John Lopatto can help you pursue the compensation to which the law entitles you.
Understanding statute of limitations
Consult an attorney as soon as possible after you have been injured by a product. By immediately investigating your claim and preserving crucial evidence while it is still fresh, your attorney can gain a valuable advantage when it comes to proving your case. Another reason why speed is important is that D.C. law stipulates that you must file your claim within a set period of time after the injury was or should have been discovered. By missing this window of opportunity, known as the statutory deadline, you lose your right to recover compensation for your injuries.
The strict liability standard for defective products
Washington, D.C., law recognizes the right of consumers to purchase and use products with the expectation that they are safe. Through application of the strict liability doctrine, I can recover compensation from a manufacturer of an unreasonably dangerous product even without proving the company acted negligently. I use methodical discovery techniques to establish that a defect in the product caused your injuries.
