      What Is Product Liability?

      When products are defective or poorly designed, they have the potential to injure or even cause death to a consumer. New York law requires that all manufacturers warn the public of potential danger if certain products are used improperly. However, product liability lawsuits are often filed because consumers continue to suffer severe injuries due to manufacturer negligence. In the worst cases, poor product design may even result in death.

      These tragic injuries and deaths are often preventable. If manufacturers had provided adequate warnings or instructions on how to properly use their products, fewer people would fall victim to their negligence. If you or a loved one has been hurt or killed by defective products, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Contact our office at (914) 618-4579 for expert legal counsel.

      Common Types of Product Liability Lawsuits

      Product liability lawsuits are filed in civil court. The common allegations regarding product liability are defective design of a product, manufacturing flaws, and a failure to warn. A product liability lawsuit can include one, two, or all three of the allegations.

      Defective design.

      Defective design means that when the product was designed, it was flawed in a way that could cause an injury once it was manufactured and placed into the hands of the consumer. Designers and manufacturers have a legal obligation to create safe products. Because they should be experts regarding their product, they should know whether their design is defective. When it is defective, it is a form of negligence. If the dangerous condition cannot be corrected, the product should include a proper warning.

      Manufacturing flaws.

      Manufacturing flaws occur when a problem happens during the time that the product is made. Think about automobile car recalls. One of the main reasons they occur is because of a manufacturing flaw. The material that was used during the manufacturing process may not be as strong as it should be. Other manufacturing flaws include breach of warranty and violations of strict liability. Those aren’t the only grounds for manufacturing flaws. Every manufacturing flaw allegation has its own set of elements that must be met.

      Failure to warn.

      When a product is considered reasonably dangerous, the manufacturer has an obligation to warn the public of any danger that exists. The warnings must be considered adequate under state law. It is presumed that the manufacturer knew or should have known about the danger.

      Product Liability Defendants

      Manufacturers aren’t the only defendants that may be named in a product liability lawsuit. Companies who supply materials may also be named if their materials were defective in some way. Sometimes, the company that sells the defective product may also be named as a defendant.

      Hi Mr.John LeifertI just wanted to shoot you a quick note to thank you again for your services. My car accident, I was incredibly stressed the full dealing with insurance companies and sorting out what was my next step towards my injuries. Especially since it was my first time involved in any type of traffic accident, I was so lost and confused!Luckily I discovered your service at the perfect timing. You were able to make sense of the multiple demand letter requests, photo evidence, and medical documents that kept my case in track. You always make sure to follow up with me. I'm so happy we were able to receive a successful outcome. Good luck to you and your associates and thank you again.Miguel Perez

      When I needed to take on a leading US automaker, I turned to the White Plains law firm of Denlea & Carton and their commercial litigation team. They filed an action in Federal Court and after three years of hard fought litigation, they helped me to obtain a great result ! Not only for myself, but for consumers around the country. Jeff, Jim and everyone at the firm were superb. They communicated with me regularly, and ensured that I understood everything that was happening. I couldn’t be happier about my representation. If you need a firm that gets great results, and isn’t afraid to go up against large corporations, look no further than Denlea & Carton!

      I researched quite a few firms before deciding on Denlea & Carton, and I couldn’t be happier that I did. They surpassed my expectations in every respect. They were kind, patient, and extremely knowledgeable. They treated my case as if it was their own, and never backed down from the fight with the defendant until they obtained an incredible result for me. There is a difference between law firms, and I’m glad I took the time to realize it. I would recommend Jim and Jeff (and everyone else who helped me) without hesitation. They’re terrific!
