NYC Defective Products and How Personal Injury Lawyers Help

NYC Defective Products are in our everyday lives, it can sometimes seem like everything has a warning label. Of course, you wouldn’t use your hair dryer while taking a bath, but there’s a warning label advising you not to do this anyways. The reason that’s so is that if a product caused the injury that way and didn’t include such a warning, the company could be sued for product liability in relation to the costs the injury caused. Product liability lawyers have a lot of experience dealing with product liability cases and in the event that you have a case, it’s beneficial to contact one. There are, of course, different types of product liability cases.

Defective Design

When you read about things like automotive recalls, this is usually due to defective design—the product doesn’t do what it is supposed to. For example, if a vehicle’s brakes fail, they are not doing their job, and if you crash as a result of being unable to stop, you can hold the auto manufacturer responsible. A defective design product liability case is present when the problem is not caused by poor manufacturing but by poor design—no matter how good the building process, the product would still be defective and/or dangerous. Personal injury lawyers at Varcadipane and Pinnsi, PC have plenty of experience dealing with defective design cases, and if you’re injured because of something’s design flaw, they can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Defective Manufacturing

Different from defective design, defective manufacturing product liability is what happens when a product’s design is fine, but something went wrong when it was manufactured that ultimately caused someone to get hurt. For example, if a pair of roller skates was manufactured in such a way that the wheels would arbitrarily fall off, causing the user to fall, the skater could hold the company who makes the skates responsible for the manufacturing flaw that caused the wheels to fall off. They would likely also benefit from hiring a personal injury attorney to help hold the company responsible, as lawyers have much more experience handling situations like these.

Inadequate Warnings

Finally, going back to the hairdryer-in-the-bathtub example, companies can be held liable for products that cause injury if there are no appropriate warnings on the label. For example, companies that produce at-home hair color kits provide warnings such as the need to wear gloves, the need to rinse out the product at a certain time, etc., in order to protect themselves against a lawsuit from someone who, were it not for the warnings, would get a chemical burn. If you get injured by using a product that has no warnings of potential danger, contact a personal injury lawyer for help seeking compensation.

Contact A New York Personal Injury Lawyer to Discuss Product Liability Damages

Product liability attorneys represent people harmed by these harmful products and attempt to get them any compensation they may deserve. A majority of insurance companies push you to settle for less or try to dismiss your product liability claim. Further, the process of building a product liability case is complex, as it involves collecting medical evidence, expert witnesses, and having a thorough understanding of negligence law. 

A NYC York Personal Injury Lawyer at Varcadipane & Pinnisi PC can help protect your or your loved one’s rights, gather the appropriate evidence, and negotiate on your behalf so you receive compensation that you’re legally entitled to under the law.
