Product Liability

Poughkeepsie Product Liability Attorney

Representing clients facing serious injuries because of defective products

If you are injured because of a defective product, you have a lot to consider. As we should, we trust in the quality of the products we buy. We trust that the products are manufactured and designed with the necessary care to ensure our safety. For the most part, we can enjoy household and industrial products without incident, but we generally put our safety in the hands of another. It is important that when we buy safety equipment, it does its job to protect us. We hope that household products, especially things bought for children, do not cause anyone harm. When we buy a car, we should be comforted by the fact that every facet of the vehicle has been tested. Unfortunately, products continue to cause injuries. Though some are isolated incidents, others could have been avoided. When negligence plays a part in an injury, it is important to consult with an attorney that can effectively pursue maximum compensation. If you need quality legal support, contact The Law Office of Raji S. Zeidan, PC for a consultation to discuss your legal matter.

Defect cases

Injuries caused by products can be quite serious. It is important to isolate the issue that caused harm and investigate the matter to find the liable party. Product liability includes a wide variety of issues, including:

  • Manufacturing defect
  • Design defect
  • Failure to warn

A design defect is when the design of a product is to blame for an injury. In these cases, it must be proven that the designer of the product could have avoided harm if there was a safer, economical and equally practical option. Manufacturer defects are a bit different. These cases involve a deviation from the design of the product. Simply put, in these cases, the design was proper and the manufacturer changed the design and it caused a consumer harm. Another serious issue in product liability cases is a lack of proper warning. These cases often involved injuries that could have been avoided with a proper warning label.

Notable product liability cases

It seems like product liability cases are on the news every day. Some notable cases of auto defects include design defects for SUVs and motorcycles. Some parts of cars that have caused serious injury as well, including airbags, batteries, tires, seat belts, brake systems, and floor mats. Some of the many instances of household product liability cases that have made the news include toys, cribs, microwaves, dishwashers, furniture, cleaning products, and batteries.

Though many products found to be harmful get recalled, when the damage is done, it is important to take action.
