New York City Product Liability Attorney

What to Do After Being Injured By a Defective Product

We expect manufacturers to create products that are not only useful, but also safe to use. However, it is not uncommon for defective products to create dangerous situations that can lead to serious injuries. Whether you have been injured because of dangerous prescription drugs, faulty cutting tools, or defective safety equipment, you may be able to hold the manufacturer liable for the injuries and damages you suffer.

Jaroslawicz & Jaros, LLC has pursued many lawsuits for individuals who have suffered injuries as a result of hazardous and defective products. Whether you have suffered catastrophic injuries, or lost a loved one in a wrongful death, our NYC personal injury lawyers may be able to help you obtain the resolution you are seeking. With 200+ years of combined experience, we have the abilities necessary to handle complex legal issues.

Our firm has had multiple successes in product liability claims, including:

  • $4 million verdict – parts of fingers lost as a result of a dangerously-designed table saw
  • $3.5 million settlement - brain injury due to a defective motorcycle helmet
  • $2 million verdict – facial scars as a result of hazardous cosmetics
  • $600,000 verdict – fractured hip as a result of an improperly-placed car seatbelt holder

When can I file a product liability claim?

There are many ways in which an individual can be injured by a product. It does not necessarily have to be faulty or defective in order for you to make a claim—negligence or oversight during the design, manufacturing, or sale of the product may be grounds for filing a personal injury claim. Errors in the design or manufacturing could make it dangerous to use. In addition, misrepresentation of the product's use or a failure to warn of potential dangers could also result in preventable injuries. You may file a claim if your injury resulted from a manufacturer's failed duty. This can include any of the following situations:

  • Dangerous product designs
  • Dangerous manufacturing errors
  • Failure to provide warnings of potential dangers
  • Failure to provide adequate instructions
  • Misrepresented use of products

Your time is limited—take action immediately!

Like many personal injury claims, there is a statute of limitations on product liability claims that restrict the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit. In the state of New York, a claim must be filed within three years, starting from the time you are injured or become aware of the injury. Waiting too long to take legal action may cause your case to be thrown out if you decide to file a lawsuit. Get in touch with an experienced injury lawyer as soon as possible to help ensure your claim is successfully filed within the statute of limitations.

Proving Your Personal Injury Claim in Court

Depending on the circumstances, it may be difficult to prove that a manufacturer is liable for the injuries you suffered as a result of the defective product. Our New York City injury attorneys have working knowledge of product liability law and the legal steps that must be taken to make a successful claim. At Jaroslawicz & Jaros, LLC, we are prepared to retain experts to corroborate the facts of your case and prove liability. With our help, you may be able to hold the manufacturer responsible and recover compensation for the following:

  • Medical costs for treatment
  • Physical/emotional pain and suffering
  • Loss of present and future wages
  • Loss of wage earning capacity

The financial burdens of an injury can change a person's life. If you are facing a difficult situation as a result of a defective product, it is important to retain a firm that offers experience and a proven record of success. Whether a case proceeds to trial or is settled out of court, our team is prepared to pursue the most effective course of action.
