Personal Injury Lawyers
It has been well documented that Massachusetts personal injury
lawyers help clients from Boston to Pittsfield and from Springfield
to New Bedford as well as in Worcester and other locations around
the state. In order for Massachusetts personal injury lawyers
to practice law effectively, they need to know what is currently
happening in the legal system and also in the news concerning
subjects such as faulty products since they may soon be involved
in these cases as well.

Personal Injury Lawyers
Tort law refers to an individual receiving compensation for an
injury they occurred due to negligence or misconduct, by fault
of another individual or company. Product recalls can fall into
the category of personal injury law as the company that has manufactured
or sold a defective product will be held liable should anyone
be injured while using that product.
Ian's Natural Foods, a food distribution company in Massachusetts,
was involved in such a product recall and now, Massachusetts personal
injury lawyers are making sure they are aware of any cases that
may be connected to this recall.
Ian's Natural Foods is located in Revere, Massachusetts and has
voluntarily recalled close to 13,000 pounds of frozen turkey products.
The recall is in effect due to the fact that the product may contain
non-fat milk. Non-fat milk is a known allergen and this ingredient
is not listed on the label. The two products being recalled are
"Ian's Popcorn Turkey Dogs" and "Ian's Batter Dipped
Turkey Sausage Dogs."
The popcorn turkey dogs were made between April 9 and June 22,
2007 and were shipped to distribution centres in Alabama, Arizona,
California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts,
Minnesota, New Hampshire, Texas and Washington. The batter dipped
turkey sausage dogs were made on May 17, 2007 and were shipped
The company found out about the problem after receiving consumer
complaints although none of those complaints went so far as to
have a need to hire a Massachusetts personal injury lawyer. There
have been no reports of illness due to the product.
For a consumer to have a personal injury case, there must be
signs of illness after consuming the product. Should a consumer
become ill and file a personal injury lawsuit, they would be entitled
to receive damages including medical bills that would compensate
for the injuries that they incurred.
