Defects in NYC Consumer Products
Product liability exists where any kind of product causes harm or death to a consumer. This can relate to any number of products, for example,
dangerous drugs, household appliances, toys, tools, paint or even food. Product defects can be divided into three basic categories: design defects, manufacturing errors and negligent marketing. The latter can manifest in such ways as a failure to warn of potential hazards, unclear warning labels or insufficient instruction manuals.
Oftentimes when a dangerous product is detected, it is recalled and the situation is broadly advertised in order to protect consumers from potential harm as best as possible. The circumstances which can be more dangerous are those in which only individual products are defective, rather than the entire line. In these cases, a consumer is not aware of the danger until after an injury has occurred. It is precisely these cases that require the attention of a New York City personal injury attorney from our firm.
