NYC Product Liability Lawyer
If you have been seriously injured due to a products defect, then we can help you. As New York City Products Liability Lawyers, we have decades of experience handling cases against manufacturers, distributors and retailers for placing defective products in the chain of commerce. Manufacturers are too eager to blame the consumer claiming that “accidents will happen,” and then view human tragedy and serious injuries as just a cost of doing business. A product can become dangerous at any point along the design and manufacturing process. Significant failures include negligence in the early design stages, inadequate testing to ensure safe performance, and marketing efforts which are inadequate if not intentionally deceptive. Negligence along the entire process can result in catastrophic injuries, wrongful death, amputations, and permanent disabilities. Many tragic deaths and serious injuries are easily predictable and easily preventable only if manufacturers spent their advertising budgets on preventive engineering and consumer education. As NYC Products Liability Lawyers, we evaluate a client’s case and represent those clients where we feel justice will ultimately prevail in the end. As in all of our cases, we limit our case load to only a few matters, so we can focus our limited time, and financial resources to securing you the maximum recovery available.

NYC Product Liability FAQ
Do I have a products liability case?
If you or a loved one have been harmed by the use of a product because it was defectively manufactured, defectively designed, or lacked proper warnings or instructions, then you may have a valid claim. Under products liability law, parties have a duty to ensure that their products are free from unreasonable dangers or defects.
Who is liable?
There are many potentially liable parties in a defective products lawsuit. Typically it involves any and all parties involved in the chain of distribution. The chain of distribution is typically made up of the manufacturer, the retailer, and any number of suppliers, wholesalers, and distributors in between. Depending on your case, the defendants may also include engineers, contractors, designers, and anyone else with some sort of connection to the defect in the product that caused your injury.
What type of damages can I recover for in a products liability case?
If you or a loved one have been harmed by the use of a product, then you may be eligible for recovery of the cost of your medical bills (past, and future), pain and suffering, lost wages (past and future), and other related expenses. If the defendants conduct was extremely egregious, you may also be able to claim punitive damages, as well.
