New York City Product Liability
Our New York City Product Liability Lawyer at Stephen Bilkis & Associates has found that a product liability claim can happen to anyone at any time. While we as consumers expect the products we purchase to be safe, unfortunately this is not always the case. From a toy causing a lead paint injury to a defective tire causing a truck accident, a defective product can cause devastating injury. Products liability law is the means that consumers have to remedy these dangerous situations. If you or a loved one has been injured because of a product, it is important to speak to our team promptly. You could be entitled to compensation for your injuries including reimbursement for your medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering.
A liability claim is dependent on the type of product, the cause of the defect and the resulting injury. The defect can take the form of a design defect, manufacturing defect or a failure to warn defect, which occurs when a manufacturer does not appropriately warn users about the risks associated with the product. Our experienced legal staff will also help you determine the appropriate type of claim that should be pursued; negligence, strict product liability or breach of warranty.
If you are a victim of one of these products, our experienced legal team can offer you the resources that are necessary in order to hold the manufacturer answerable for their actions and your subsequent injury. Even if your injury is not serious or life-threatening, filing a product liability claim can help prevent injuries to other people. Ideally, a successful product liability claim will force other companies to look at their safety policies and make sure their products are safer. There are three specific areas that a product liability claim can contain. These include a defective design which is an inherent flaw that can make the product useless and dangerous; defective manufacturing includes below standard manufacturing techniques or lower than average product materials; defective marketing occurs when a product is sold without necessary instructions or warnings.
The legal staff at our firm commonly sees these types of cases regarding:
- Motor vehicles/airbags
- Children’s toys
- Prescription medications
- Food products
We can help you determine if you have a viable product liability claim. The product may have caused a ladder accident, construction accident, scaffold accident, car accident, SUV accident. Those injured by these dangerous products should contact our New York Injury Attorneys so we can help you hold the negligent party responsible for their injury.
