Product Liability Lawsuits in New York City

We live in one of the most resourceful, inventive nations in the world, and because of this, we have access to various goods designed to make our lives easier. This can include lawnmowers, power tools, cosmetics, and more. Unfortunately, at times, these products can be negligently produced or designed, causing defects that frequently result in serious injuries. If you are someone who has been injured by a defective product, you re most likely now seeking financial compensation to help you through the claims process ahead. Please continue reading and speak with our experienced New York City firm to learn more about how we can help you through the claims process ahead.

What should I do if I was injured because of a defective product?

If you were injured because of a defective product, the first thing you should do is seek medical treatment. However, you should also ensure that you do not throw out the defective product before doing so. Very often, the defective product can be used as evidence. Once your injuries have been treated, ensure you retain the services of a knowledgeable New York City personal injury attorney who can determine the party responsible for your accident. There are three primary types of product liability lawsuits.

The first is a negligent product design, meaning the product designer failed to take consumer safety into account when conceptualizing the product. There is also a failure to warn, meaning the company did not include appropriate warning labels or instructions with a product. Finally, you can also sue a negligent manufacturer if you can prove that manufacturer diverted from the initially safe blueprints provided by the product designer, causing the product to become unsafe. To win your claim, our firm will gather and present pictures of the product defect, pictures/medical documents regarding your injuries, police reports filed, witness statements, security camera footage if available, and more.

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in New York State?

The statute of limitations is the amount of time people have to take legal action against negligent parties. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York is three years, you will have three years from the date of the incident to file a claim. If you wait any longer than three years, you will, generally, be barred from suing. Do not let this happen.
