injured by a dangerous or defective product?

know your rights

Many defective products reach the marketplace despite the efforts of regulatory groups and cause injury to consumers and their families.  Once innocent consumers are injured, they cannot turn back the clock and erase the damage.  Defective products can result in fires, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazards or can injure children.  According to CPSC statistics, “toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters, and household chemicals – contributed significantly to the 30 percent increase in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 35 years.”

Experienced NY Product Liability Lawyers

There has been a large increase in the number of reported injuries from defective products in the marketplace over the past thirty years.  Regulatory commissions are not able to prevent injuries caused by negligently designed or defectively manufactured products.

The successful handling of products liability cases is an art and a science that requires experience and training, as well as resources and specialized experts that are often beyond the ken of most lawyers.

Remember, if you are injured by a defective product, it is important to preserve the defective product so we can have it examined by an expert as soon after the accident as possible.  Securing evidence quickly is often the key to prevailing in these complex cases so do not hesitate to call us to discuss your accident without needless delay.  The Bronx defective products lawyers at the the Stern Law Firm firm are experienced litigators, highly skilled in handling products liability, and are waiting to talk with you.

four theories for establishing liability

Design Defect

In Defective Design cases, we must prove that the manufacturer marketed a product which was not reasonably safe in its design, that it was feasible to design the product in a safer manner and that the defective design was a substantial factor in causing the injury.

Manufacturing Defect

In Manufacturing Defects, we must establish that the defective product came off the production line in an unsafe condition, failing to conform to its intended design.

Breach of Warranty

With Failure to Warn claims, which often involve improper or inadequate labeling, we must show that the manufacturer neglected to warn of latent dangers encountered during a foreseeable use of its product (whether intended or not) of which it knew or should have known, all of which culminated in the consumer’s injury.

Failure to Warn

Breach of Implied or Express Warranty cases are generally based on failure of the product to meet expectations, based upon contract or representations made by the manufacturer, distributor or seller.

“The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from more than 15,000 types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $800 billion annually.”
