Hudson Valley Product Liability Lawyers
Injured by a Defective Product? Call Today!
A product liability lawsuit ensures that the manufacturer, supplier, or retailer of a defective product is held accountable for injuries caused by these products. Whether you sustained an injury because of a malfunctioning seat belt, a loved one became ill due to a defect in a medical device, or you were injured because of poorly-written or incomplete instructions, our team of Hudson Valley product liability attorneys is prepared to fight for you.
Types of Product Liability Claims
There are three main types of product liability claims. These case types include:
- Design defects: Design makes the product unsafe, regardless of their manufacturing
- Manufacturing defects: The manufacture or assembly of a product results in problems
- Marketing defects: Improper or inadequate warning labels, instructions, or misleading marketing
Most products undergo intensive product review before they even come to the market. This is to protect the consumer from negative effects. However, thousands of drugs, devices, and consumer goods that are unproven and potentially unsafe make their way to the market. Our attorneys have the experience necessary to file the appropriate claim and hold negligent parties accountable.
From dangerous drugs and medical devices to unsafe food products, consumer-facing products must be safe for reasonable use. While you may not be looking for a lawsuit, working with a Hudson Valley product liability lawyer gives you the opportunity to recover compensation for your injuries, while also exposing the product's defect to protect others from suffering similar fates.
