When Defective Products Cause Serious Injuries
We buy products in the marketplace with the assumption that they will be generally safe and will function appropriately. But when something goes wrong and these products cause serious injuries through malfunctioning or lack of appropriate warning for the user, the injury victims are faced with enormous challenges. It can be intimidating to bring a lawsuit against a major manufacturer or retailer. The most critical step is to enlist the help of an experienced legal team to take your case and fight for your rights.
At Arze & Mollica, LLP, we represent clients who have been injured by defective and dangerous products. The technical term for this type of lawsuit is a product liability claim. When companies put products into the marketplace, these products need to be safe and include appropriate warnings for any inherent dangers with the products. When they fail and someone gets hurt, the companies can be held liable for the injuries and other losses that might result. With 20 years of experience each, both of our attorneys have handled many product liability claims in Brooklyn and throughout New York. If you or someone you love has been hurt by a dangerous product, our attorneys can help you.
The Basics Of Product Liability Claims
For product liability claims, there are generally four legal theories on which the case can be based: strict liability, tortious representation, breach of implied warranty and negligence. The good news is that we don’t have to establish all of these to have a valid claim. All we need to do is show that the item was unsafe and there was no warning of the product’s dangers.
However, these cases can be complicated because attorneys don’t necessarily have to prove all four things in every case. Generally, to prove a product liability case, the attorney must have to prove that the item was unsafe and there was no warning stating it could potentially be dangerous.
Our attorneys have a wealth of knowledge helping clients through the legal process of bringing defective products claims. If you’ve been hurt by any type of product, talk with our lawyers – we can help you.
