Defective Products

Holding Manufacturers Accountable For Defective Products

A product is defective if the design is dangerous, it was defectively made or consumers were not adequately informed of the potential risks of using the product. Serious injuries can occur almost without warning from a faulty tire, defective cookware, a flawed infant product or any other product defect.

Spotlighting Product Liability Case Examples In NYC

  • Wrongful death: We successfully represented the estate of a young child who was killed when a dresser fell on him. We proved that the dresser design was dangerous since it toppled over when the top two drawers full of clothes were pulled out at the same time.
  • Severe burns: We represented a young girl who was severely burned when her young friend used paint thinner to start a fire. The fire entered the paint thinner container and shot out from it. We presented evidence showing that paint thinners are frequently used to start fires, the container did not have a flame retarder to prevent the fire from shooting out of the container, and the warnings on the label were inadequate.
  • Cutting/crushing injuries: We successfully represented a worker who was injured while using a defective meat grinder.
  • Explosions: We represented a person who was injured as a result of an exploding tire rim.
