When defective products cause serious injuries or loss of life, there are legal actions that the victim or their family members must quickly take to seek justice. The number of product liability cases filed each year has been on the rise as more products are manufactured overseas without being subject to the same strict manufacturing restrictions as those in the U.S. However, even products manufactured in the U.S. can have defective parts or serious design flaws, causing devastating damage to the innocent consumer.
The New York defective products attorneys at the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm have been representing injured victims of defective products throughout New York since 1971. We are dedicated to helping you file a personal injury case against all of the negligent parties to get you the full compensation that you deserve.
Areas of Product Liability Law
New York State law protects consumers from dangerous products and holds manufacturers, vendors, wholesalers, retailers and distributors liable for the items they provide to the consumer. There are three main concerns of product liability (also known as “defective products”) law:
- Defective Design. When the designer of a product makes a mistake or oversight that causes a particular product to be dangerous to the consumer when used as directed, or for another reasonable purpose, the injured consumer may file a defective design claim. Even if the victim misused the product, the manufacturer may still be held liable if the improper use was foreseeable.
- Defective Manufacture. If a defect in a product is a result of the manufacturing process, then the manufacturer may be held liable and the injured consumer may file a defective manufacturer claim.
- Marketing Defects. If the product did not contain proper instructions or warning labels, the injured consumer may file a claim for a failure to warn marketing defect. Without adequate guidance on how to properly use a product, it may be foreseeable that consumers would not know how to use that product safely.
Regardless of what type of defective product claim you have, our experienced New York defective products attorneys can help you get the just compensation you deserve.
