Injured by a defective product in New York? Manufacturers and sellers have a legal obligation to ensure that their products are reasonably safe. If you or a loved one was injured due to the negligence of a manufacturer, contact us today for a free consultation.
Unfortunately, people come into contact with products every day that are unsafe because they were defectively designed or manufactured, or they lacked proper warnings. More often than not, these defects and the injuries they cause could and should have been avoided. If you or a member of your family is injured as a result of a defective product in New York, the attorneys at Porter Nordby Howe LLP have the experience and resources necessary to secure full compensation for you.
We have represented plaintiffs in a wide variety of defective product claims. Our experience gives us access to the very best experts in their respective fields and other resources that are critical in the prosecution of your case from start to finish. We have experience representing individuals injured by unsafe and defective:
household products and appliances
cars, trucks, motorcycles and other vehicles
industrial equipment including forklifts, excavator and other equipment
pharmaceuticals and other toxic substances
Thanks to the widespread availability of e-commerce, people now have access to a broader range of goods than ever before. Unfortunately, this also leaves them even more vulnerable to product defects. Federal and state laws are currently in place to safeguard American consumers from any harm as a result of items they purchase. International regulations have also been implemented to this same end. Still, certain products manage to slip through the cracks, often leading to personal injuries and significant monetary losses.
Injured consumers tend to have very little luck battling corporations responsible for these damages on their own. These companies have experienced legal teams on their side long before injuries are caused by their negligence. Having an equally-qualified defective products lawyer on your side can turn the tables in your favor.
Examples of key issues in these cases include infant injuries and fatalities caused by defective cribs over the last few decades. An array of vehicle accidents have also been traced back to design and manufacturing errors in the automotive industry. Injuries like these happen for a number of reasons, but the most common causes are:
Inadequate quality control measures
Lack of proper warning labels
At Porter Nordby Howe LLP, we’re prepared to stand up for the rights of our clients who have been injured or experienced losses due to this type negligence. Our team of defective products lawyers not only has considerable experience in this field, but an array of resources from which to draw. Our network includes research specialists as well as expert witnesses from a variety of industries, all ready to testify on your behalf.
Defective product claims are often difficult to prove because of the numerous factors involved. Researchers must thoroughly investigate every link in the supply chain including designers, manufacturers, packaging and shipping companies, and distributors in order to build a solid case. Each of these parties could easily claim that fault for an injury lies with the injured person, but gathering substantial evidence against the truly responsible party helps combat such allegations.
Whether design or manufacturing flaws occurred in an effort to rush a product to market, or corners were cut to decrease production costs, almost all damages caused by defective products could have been avoided. If you or a loved one has been injured or otherwise negatively impacted by a defective product, we urge you to call or send us an email.
Our trial lawyers can help hold negligent parties accountable and prevent others from being harmed by those products in the future. Let us face the corporate giants on your behalf and get you the compensation you deserve. Consultations are free, and there’s never any charge for our services unless we win your case.
