Major product recalls often lead to a multi-plaintiff case, in which the parties who were directly affected sue the manufacturer for compensation. When you use a defective product or take a dangerous medication and an injury or death results, the company needs to be held responsible for its careless actions. At Trantolo & Trantolo, our mass tort and class action attorneys will fight to see that you receive full compensation in the group settlement.

Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection

The DCP in the state of Connecticut issues licenses, registrations and permits to various businesses, including pharmacies, liquor stores and home improvement contractors each year. When there is a consumer complaint against one of these businesses, the DCP investigates to protect other consumers from dealing with the same unethical business or using the same defective product. There are seven divisions: Drug Control, Food and Standards, Frauds, Gaming, Licensing, Liquor Control, Occupational and Professional and Trade Practice. On the site, you can file a complaint, view recalls, renew a license and more.
