Holding Defective Product Manufacturers Accountable
New York product manufacturers, designers and distributors have a legal obligation to ensure their products are safe to use. If a company fails to warn you of the potential for injury or other health concerns and you suffer an injury or illness, the manufacturer can be held liable.
With over 40 years of experience, the attorneys at The Law Offices of Mark E. Weinberger P.C. have the practiced knowledge and resources to help you hold the responsible party accountable. In addition to helping you recover fair compensation, a successful products liability claim could prevent others from suffering the same injury.
When Can I File A Products Liability Claim?
Consumers frequently suffer injuries from product use, but an injury is not necessarily an indication of a faulty product. To have a viable products liability claim, you must be able to prove that the product was defective when released for use, which resulted in your injury. Defective products generally fall into three categories:
- Design defect: A design flaw makes the product unreasonably dangerous to users even if used as directed.
- Manufacturing defect: A flaw in the manufacturing process can result in incomplete or poorly made products that are dangerous to users.
- Marketing defect: Manufacturers must provide information about known risks associated with the product, instructions for use and proper warning labels.

Product manufacturers often argue that misuse caused the victim’s injuries. However, if a product used as intended injured you because of a defect, you may have grounds for a products liability claim.
