New Rochelle Product Liability Lawyer

As consumers, we are always on the lookout for products and commodities that make our lives easier. Product manufacturers, designers, and retailers are legally obligated to ensure the safety of products once they hit the market. However, despite innovations in technology and other safety-related features made to protect consumers from harm, dangerous and defective products continue to enter the market, harming people and posing a serious risk of injury. 

If you have suffered injuries due to a defective product, the New Rochelle product liability attorneys at Lever & Ecker, PLLC, can represent you and hold the negligent company or companies liable for the release of unsafe products into commerce, or for their failures to warn consumers of possible product-related hazards. With our 99+% success rate and hands-on approach, we can guide you through each step of the legal process.

How to Establish Negligence in a Product Liability Lawsuit 

Despite product safety regulations and testing, thousands of hazardous products and consumer goods hit the market each year. According to the National Safety Council, 11.7 million people required emergency treatment for injuries resulting from consumer products in 2021. Companies that fail to ensure product safety must be held liable for the harm they cause consumers. 

To establish liability in a product liability lawsuit, you must prove a lack of duty of care, which may be demonstrated by violating one or more of the following:

  • Adequate product inspection or testing before releasing the product
  • Correcting a product flaw before releasing the product
  • Including warnings or risks associated with the product 
  • Recognizing potential dangers and hazards 

In order to obtain a favorable outcome in a product liability lawsuit, whether through settlement or trial, there must be evidence of the following: 

  • A product used in a way the manufacturer intended to be used or in a way the manufacturer could expect a reasonable person to use it
  • Evidence that the product either had defective design or manufacturing or that the company failed to warn consumers of the dangers of using their product
  • Physical injury or other loss due to a defective product 

Further, product manufacturers are obligated to foresee and warn consumers of product misuse. If a victim accidentally misuses a product in a way that the manufacturer should have anticipated, the victim may still have the right to pursue compensation for their injuries. 

The seasoned New Rochelle product liability lawyers at Lever & Ecker, PLLC, will represent you in seeking complete monetary compensation for your economic and non-economic losses. If a settlement is not possible, we are prepared to bring your case to trial to aggressively advocate on your behalf.
