PRODUCT LIABILITY LAWYER NYC

Product Liability Deaths

Our product liability lawyers in NYC represent the victims of defective product accidents. Manufacturers are required to rigorously test their products to ensure safety on the part of the consumer. Quality assurance is designed to prevent any defective products from ever reaching the public. However, it is still possible for defective pieces of equipment or contaminated food items to slip by quality control and pose a risk to consumers. These defective products can lead to serious injuries and can even result in death.

If your loved one has passed away in an accident involving a defective product, then you may have grounds for legal action. The product liability lawyers at Queller, Fisher, Washor, Fuchs & Kool And The Law Office Of William A. Gallina, LLP have the knowledge, experience and resources to fight for your rights against the large corporations that injure or kill consumers with unsafe products. Whether a death is the result of a defective product, contaminated food, a vehicle defect, a medical device defect or a prescription drug recall, our attorneys can help victim’s families recover the compensation they deserve.

What Are The Categories For A Product Liability Claim?

The most common product liability claims are design defects, manufacturing defects and failure to warn defects.

Design Defects

Design Defects

These claims involve products that have defective designs. In these situations, the product was manufactured as designed, but the design itself was problematic; the company designing the product failed to account for the defect or problem that caused a death. Design defect claims focus on negligence on the part of the manufacturer of the product.

Manufacturing Defects

Manufacturing Defects

Defective manufacturing claims involve products that were constructed improperly. Defective parts, poor workmanship and low-quality materials are common causes of manufacturing defects. These claims focus on product malfunctions that put the consumer at risk. The manufacturer may be liable in these cases.

Failure To Warn Defects

Failure To Warn Defects

Failure to warn defects are also referred to as “marketing defects.” These claims state that the manufacturer failed to adequately inform the consumer of the possible side effects or dangers of using the product in a certain way. Manufacturers are required to provide product warnings consistent with federal and industry guidelines; if manufacturers fail to do this, they may be liable.

Who Is At Risk Of A Product Liability Death?

Any product can be defective, but certain categories of products typically pose more risks than others.

  • Heavy equipment and machinery can lead to death if defectively designed, not properly used or improperly maintained.
  • Vehicle defects in cars, buses, trains and other forms of transportation can cause fatal accidents.
  • Products that emit toxic vapors, fumes or have caustic properties can be fatal and must provide adequate warning in regards to protective clothing and ventilation.
  • Certain prescription drugs may have dangerous side effects if consumed in a certain way.
  • Contaminated food can spread diseases or illnesses that pose a major health risk.

If someone you know has died as a result of faulty equipment or inadequate labeling of dangers, you may be eligible for compensation from the manufacturer.

A Law Firm With Resources And Experience

Fighting large corporations for compensation on behalf of consumers can be a long, difficult, complex and expensive battle. However, successful litigation is often the only option to stop a company from continuing to profit from dangerous or deadly products at the expense of innocent consumers. Our product liability lawyers have decades of experience representing the victims of product liability deaths and helping families recover the compensation they so rightly deserve.
