Suffolk County Long Island Product Liability Defective Product Injury Lawyer
From tires to pharmaceuticals to cribs: what happens when they cause injury?
Most of us take for granted that the products we use every day are safe, that manufacturers take safety measures and that regulations help ensure adherence to standards. Unfortunately, we sometimes find out the hard way that this is not always the case.
When products fail because of negligence on the part of a designer, engineer, manufacturer — or even a distributor or retailer, accidents happen. And whether due to an inadequate child seat mechanism or a defective electrical appliance, the resulting injuries can be devastating, including:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Severe burns
- Wrongful death
At Birzon, Strang, and Associates, a Suffolk personal injury law firm, we hold manufacturers and others accountable for their carelessness. We make those responsible compensate you for your injuries, and help ensure that nobody else, adult or child, is harmed because those organizations did not live up to their obligations to exercise reasonable care.
We know how to prove your Product Liability / Defective Product claim
In a defective product claim, it must be shown that you were injured, that a defective product caused your injuries and that you were using the product as intended. As Suffolk attorneys with over 30 years of experience each, in helping people throughout Long Island and Suffolk and Nassau County who have been harmed by defective products, we know what the counter arguments will be and build a strategically sound case on your behalf. We help you recover damages for injuries caused by defective products, including:
- Car batteries
- Prescription or OTC drugs
- Sports equipment
- Power tools
- Kitchen appliances
- High chairs
- Protective gear (goggles, gloves, etc.)
- Flammable clothing
- Ladders and step stools
- Toys with lead paint or inadequate warnings
- Bunk beds
The U.S. Product Safety Commission maintains a list of potentially dangerous products and products that have been recalled. If you or a family member has been injured by a defective product, whether it has been recalled or not, we will fight to make sure that you get the best possible compensation.
