Every year, thousands of consumers are seriously injured or killed by dangerous and defective products. Many of these injuries could be avoided if the manufacturers or distributors of these products took additional steps to ensure consumer safety. These products may include automotive defects, defective tires, faulty airbags, dangerous toys, improperly designed consumer products, industrial machinery and equipment, and pharmaceutical drugs and devices.
You have the right to be compensated if you have been injured as the result of an automotive defect. One of the most difficult, expensive and important tasks in preparing and presenting a defective automotive case is securing the assistance and testimony of qualified experts. Our NY auto product liability law firm has the experience and resources required to obtain excellent experts who are qualified to testify about defective products at trial.
Many successful New York product liability cases result in not only obtaining substantial money damages for the victim, but also have the desired social effect of encouraging manufacturers to re-design a product, suggesting legislation which establishes standards for safer products, and removes unsafe products from the market.
