NY Manufacturing Defect Attorney

Defects in Manufacturing

Consumers who have suffered an injury or illness because of a dangerous or defective product may be entitled to compensation from the product manufacturer. In order to receive support, injured consumers must prove that the product was defective in some way and that the defect directly led to their injury. Product manufacturers can be held accountable for the damages they cause if their product was defectively designed, defectively marketed or defectively manufactured.

The experienced New York product defect attorneys at Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro & Halperin, LLP understand the price consumers pay for the negligence of manufacturers. Consumers suffer because these large corporations put profits before the safety and well-being of individuals who buy their products. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a manufacturing defect, please contact us to obtain more information about pursuing your legal rights. We can be reached at (212) 986-7353.

What are Manufacturing Defects?

In theory, products that are in the marketplace have already been properly tested and approved for sale. There are times, however, in which an otherwise safe product is dangerous because of mistakes made during construction, manufacturing or assembly.

Examples of manufacturing defects include:

These types of manufacturing defects can result from the use of cheap materials, poor workmanship, a lack of supervision, machinery malfunction, failure to inspect products before sale, inadequate cleaning, contamination, or a number of other errors. These types of mistakes may affect only one product or thousands of products over a period of time. Each case is different, but it’s common for a number of consumers to suffer harm from the same line of defectively manufactured products.

Understanding Your Rights After Being Injured by a Defectively Manufactured Product

If you are one of many victims of a defective product, you may be able to join a class action lawsuit that is already in place. Class action claims allow victims with similar injuries to combine their claims and use only one legal team. Class action claims are ideal for victims of minor injuries, but they often result in inadequate settlements when serious injuries are involved. If you have sustained harm that is not similar to the other claimants, you may want to avoid the class action suit and file your own claim.

Whatever legal route you choose, you will need to prove that you were using the product as it was designed, that the product was defective, that you suffered actual harm and that your injury was because of the defect. It is important that you preserve the product for a complete inspection and keep records of all the losses you incurred as a result of the defective product.
