Every year, hundreds of Americans are injured by poorly designed or manufactured products. From children’s toys to dangerous prescription drugs, one mistake in the corporate warehouse can mean serious injury for an unsuspecting consumer. Manufacturing companies are expected to design, manufacture and market their products with a reasonable amount of care. Failure to do so can result in damage to those who use their products.
At The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny, we have extensive knowledge of the legal theories behind product liability, which allows our New York City product liability lawyers to help you take legal action at this time.
Common Examples Of Product Liability
You can potentially file a claim for any type of defective product, but certain examples have become increasingly common problems, resulting in more and more lawsuits. Many people have successfully sued tire manufacturers over tread separation and blowouts, which can suddenly throw the vehicle out of control and cause a collision or rollover. Other widely publicized claims have centered on prescription drugs, particularly anti-depressants with dangerous side effects.
Lawsuits over hazardous children’s toys and household appliances that have caused burn injuries also have increased. Furthermore, claims based on defective or dangerous drugs pose serious threats to patients using them and can increase the risk of disease and cancer. Depending on the circumstances, your case may best be handled as an individual claim or as part of a class action lawsuit. Let us review the situation and advise you of your legal options.
