Defective Products

Defective Products

Most products that we buy are safe and function as promised. Consumer products have become safer over the years, partly because of better technology, but even more so because of better regulations.

What drives the regulations? Injuries and trial lawyers who file lawsuits against companies in order to hold them accountable for their defective products.

Too often, a product must fail with catastrophic results before its weaknesses become clear and change is made. Whether the defect is an unseen manufacturing error or a major design flaw, the consequences can range from painful and inconvenient to devastating and life altering.

Defective products don’t fix themselves – and the injured aren’t always cared for

Your lawsuit regarding a defective product may be the one that spurs higher product-safety standards, but that’s of little comfort when you or your loved one is now in pain — and perhaps in financial peril — all because of the carelessness of the company that manufactured the product.

The good news is that the law may be on your side. There is a reason it’s expensive to bring a new product to market; there’s also a reason product safety laws exist in the first place. These laws are meant to keep consumers like you from being treated as lab chimps by manufacturers — and, in general, they succeed in doing that.

But for justice to happen, you must demand it. You need a lawyer who will stand up for your rights and take on the big company that is responsible for your injury.

“The Jim Rochford & Associates law firm was extremely helpful in resolving a very difficult and sensitive situation in a federal lawsuit against a school. Tim Cushing served as the lead attorney, and worked closely with Jim Rochford. Attorney Nick Rochford also provided very valuable counsel. On a personal level, they were responsive and easy to communicate with throughout the entire process. They were also patient, always available to answer questions, and provided objective legal advice that I knew I could trust. Their attention to detail and knowledge of laws are unsurpassed. In addition, the firm has highly professional and helpful support staff, including Deb Rochford and Mary Thomas, and a network of specialized experts that they collaborate with to provide comprehensive legal solutions. After working with this law firm, I strongly recommend them to anyone needing an extremely responsive law firm that will work tirelessly to protect their clients’ interests. They are highly respected in the legal community, and I would trust them with any legal situation – personal or business.”

Appreciative Client

“Could not have asked for a better experience! Both the attorneys and staff were extremely professional in the handling of my case. They represented me on my worker’s compensation case that was from a summer job in another state. They helped me get a great settlement and it did not take very long either. I would highly recommend Jim Rochford as an attorney for anyone. One thing that stood out about him was I truly believe he always had my best interest at heart.”

Allie Caruso

“I am somewhat late in writing this but team Rochford went above and beyond my expectations while assisting me with my fathers estate after his passing. We unfortunately had a squatter in his home during covid which we were able to successfully remove with the assistance of Tim Cushing’s letters and the PCPD. They really made us feel like family and at no point did I ever feel they were seeking to take advantage of the situation for profit. I would gladly give 6 stars!”


“I have dealt with this attorney for years and they always take care of me and my family. I highly recommend this company for all injury cases. They go above and beyond. 5 stars.”

“Tim Cushing is an incredible family law attorney. He has worked effortlessly for my children. Jim Rochford and his lovely wife, Deb, have been supportive and are as invested in my children as I am. Even the paralegal, Mary, puts her heart and soul into everything. I cannot stress to you how amazing this Law Firm has been to my little family. If you are in need of an attorney, don’t hesitate to give them a call. They specialize in many different aspects of the law and will put you with an attorney who is a great fit!”
