When Should I Contact a New York Product Liability Attorney?
Product manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers are responsible for ensuring that the products they make and sell to consumers are safe. Product liability law pertains to injury or death caused by products that are defective or unreasonably dangerous. Each year, hundreds of products are recalled in the United States. A product recall may be a sign that a toy, appliance, tools, medication, or automobile is unsafe. Oftentimes, however, a product may be unsafe or defective even though it has not been recalled. In fact, most of the claims prosecuted by our New York product liability lawyers do not involve recalled products.
If you have experienced an injury or other loss due to an unsafe product, you may be entitled to compensation under New York State law. Injuries that flow from dangerous products or accidents that follow a product failure can range from minor to severe, including:
- brain damage
- cognitive dysfunction
- heart attack
- permanent disability
- respiratory abnormalities
- wrongful death
Product liability law is one of the most complex areas of personal injury law. Generally, only very experienced attorneys accept product liability cases because they are extremely costly to prove (the average product liability case costs $50,000 to $100,000 to litigate). Product liability claims are also very well-defended by large corporations and their insurance companies.
If you have been injured by a defective product, it is critical that you speak with an experienced product liability attorney as soon as possible. Every minute counts because, with the passage of time, memories fade and evidence is lost. Almost universally, a product liability lawsuit cannot be won if the product that fails is misplaced, modified, repaired, destroyed, or discarded. Above all else, make sure that you safeguard the evidence until you have spoken with a product liability lawyer.
Corporations and their insurance companies know which law firms regularly handle product liability cases. Do not be fooled by clever advertising. Who you hire to represent you may directly affect your ability to recover.
