A previous post on this blog clarified that while product recalls can mean a Long Island resident will be able to get a refund or repaired or replaced product, it does not mean that the manufacturer of the product is agreeing to pay compensation for damages. A person injured a by a defective product, whether subject to a recall or not, is on his or her own to get compensation for any medical bills, lost wages and other damages.
Our law office has been in the business of protecting consumers from defective products for more than a quarter of a century, and, as experienced attorneys with a track record of success, we know how to help our clients, when they've been injured by a recalled product, get full compensation for their losses.
We handle all different types of products liability cases, including cases involving problems with design, a breakdown in the manufacturing process or just a company's failure to adequately warn a consumer how to use a product safely. The products we have worked with include, among others, cars and car-related parts, toys, drugs and health care equipment and devices.
One of the important things in a products liability case is to find out who exactly is responsible for making and distributing the product, as all of these parties can be held responsible for injuries.
For those who have been injured by a defective product, especially if the product was recalled, it may be beneficial to contact our legal team for help. In products liability cases, it is often possible to get recovery even if the manufacturer exercise the utmost care, so New Yorkers should not be shy about speaking up if they've been hurt by a product.
