Retailer Found Responsible for Defective Product
Francesca was visiting her sister and niece and while staying at their home she went to her niece’s room which had a new bedroom set. While her niece was sitting on her bed it collapsed crushing Francesca’s toe. Our office brought a claim against the store which sold and assembled the bed. The retailer did not want to accept responsibility and claimed it was the manufacturer of the bed that was at fault. Attorney FitzGerald knew that a retailer in Massachusetts is responsible for any defects of a product they sell and prevailed in the claim. The retailer agreed to settle and compensate Francesca for the injuries suffered.
