We often don’t think about the threat of being injured by products we purchase. Unfortunately, this kind of damage happens more often than we think. If a manufacturer is careless, makes a mistake, or does not properly check their work, they may produce a faulty product that can seriously injure someone. In these cases, that manufacturer should be held responsible.

A product liability lawsuit is a type of personal injury case in the state of New York. Injured individuals can bring up product liability cases against every kind of manufacturer, from automobiles to food and pharmaceuticals.

Understanding how products liability cases work is important for ensuring you win your case. Let’s take a look at what you need to know about products liability law in New York.

About Products Liability Law in New York

Hazards and defects in products happen all too often, especially in areas where we expect a higher standard of safety. Automobile defects are one of the most common kinds of products liability lawsuits. When a defective part malfunctions, it can cause serious injuries to drivers, their family members, and even other drivers or pedestrians.

Child products are another area where we frequently see products liability cases. Defective parts in children’s furniture can cause serious injuries to children and infants, sometimes even resulting in death. Products liability cases can also happen when a manufacturer uses the wrong materials, such as lead paint.

Food and pharmaceuticals also have a high number of products liability cases. Whether it is an outbreak of salmonella or a recall on an item because of contaminated food, you can bring a products liability case against a manufacturer if you’re sick or injured because of a mistake with their products.

Winning Your Products Liability Case

In order to win your products liability case, you must be able to prove that the manufacturer was at fault for your injuries, illness or even the death of a loved one. In order to do this, you’ll want to work with an expert personal injury attorney.
