NY Product Liability Lawyers Serving All of New York
The attorneys at the law firm of Elovich & Adell hold negligent parties accountable when innocent consumers are injured due to faulty products. Each year many people in the United States are harmed by a variety of items, including toys, automobiles, and household appliances.
An item that causes the user any type of bodily injury as the result of a defect is considered a defective product. In the United States, manufacturers must create products that if used properly will not cause harm to the consumer. If there is a chance that there are any risks associated with the product or that the product may create a hazard, proper warning labels must be posted on the packing to inform the consumer of the risk.
The following briefly describes three different types of product liability claims:
- Design defect – The faulty design of the product posed a threat and caused an injury.
- Failure to warn – The product did not have proper warning labels on the packaging informing consumers of safety hazards, which resulted in physical injuries while using the product.
- Manufacturing defect – A defect in the item occurring during manufacturing resulted in serious physical injuries.
