Products Liability

New York laws protect consumers who are injured by defective products

There are three types of product defects that manufacturers and sellers may be liable for:

  • Design defects—flaws that exist in the entire run of manufactured products due to a defective design
  • Manufacturing defects—flaws that occur in an individual item due to a defect in the raw material, construction, or production of the item
  • Marketing defects—improper instructions and failures to warn consumers of latent dangers in the product

The products liability lawyers at Barasch McGarry Salzman & Penson, PC are skilled in thoroughly investigating a product failure and identifying all liable parties that in any way caused your injury. When a defective product results in a personal injury or wrongful death, you have the legal right to seek compensation for—

  • Lost wages
  • Payment of medical bills
  • Long-term care
  • Punitive damages

Preserve the evidence and take action right away

To succeed in a products liability claim, the product must be saved and should not be altered in any way. The product must be immediately given to an experienced products liability attorney so that he or she can preserve the product and have an expert's evaluation performed as soon as possible. Failure to properly preserve the defective product may limit your right to compensation.

Handling products liability cases requires experience, expertise, and resources to achieve a successful resolution for the victim. Under products liability law, victims have the right to have their case heard by a jury. Our NY personal injury attorneys are aggressive trial lawyers, but are also skilled negotiators if a settlement is in your best interest.
