Ulster County Defective Product Lawyer | Protecting Consumers in NYS

Defective product injuries are both frustrating and potentially devastating. Unfortunately, it is often very challenging to try to attain the compensation you need from the corporation responsible for your injuries, which is why you should consider speaking with a knowledgeable Ulster County personal injury lawyer who has handled countless product liability claims in the past.

Filing a Product Liability Claim

When someone brings a potential product liability claim to an attorney, the attorney must first determine the liable party before proceeding with the lawsuit. When it comes to defective products, there are three primary causes of a defect in question. They are as follows:

  • Product Designer Negligence: When someone designs a product, they are responsible for ensuring that the product is both safe and effective. Unfortunately, there are times where product designers will fail to ensure the safety of their product, thereby either intentionally or unintentionally making their product a hazard to use. As long as your attorney can prove that there was a safer, economically feasible means to design the product that would not hinder its function, you should win your product liability claim.
  • Product Manufacturer Negligence: Product manufacturers are responsible for adhering to a safe product’s blueprints. When a product manufacturer does not follow these blueprints to a T, the previously safe product may now become a hazard. In this case, your attorney will most likely file a product liability claim against the product’s manufacturer.
  • Failure to Warn: Not only are companies in charge of ensuring their product is safe; they must also include any necessary instructions/warnings about how to/how to not use the product. For example, power tools must come with clear warning labels regarding the improper way to use the product to prevent injuries from misuse. If they fail to do so and someone is injured, that person may have a valid claim on the grounds of failure to warn.

Statute of Limitations in NYS

The statute of limitations for product liability claims in New York State is three years. This means that you will have three years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the party responsible for your injuries.
