5 Helpful Tips for a Dangerous Product case

  • Preserve the product and do not use it again.
  • File an accident report.
  • Obtain the names, addresses, and phone numbers of all witnesses to the accident.
  • Obtain photographs of the product showing the make, model, and serial number.
  • Contact a New York Product Liability attorney immediately to protect your rights

Manufacturers, designers, distributors, retailers, and those who sell a product are obligated to distribute a product that is not unreasonably dangerous. A product may be unsafe and dangerous in the manner it is manufactured or designed.  A product can also be unsafe and dangerous if it lacks adequate safety warnings.   A cause of action also exists for a breach of warranty.  If the accident occurred at work, a workers’ compensation claim may exist.

Cigarette and drug companies have been publicized for producing dangerous products;   however, unsafe products can also include unreasonably dangerous medical equipment, prescription and non-prescription drugs, motor vehicles, carpenter tools, machinery, and almost anything else that can be sold.

Engineering standards, medical standards, and government safety standards are used to help determine whether a product is safe for use.  It is usually necessary to speak with a New York product liability lawyer to help determine whether a product is unreasonably dangerous.  Inspecting the product is crucial and all attempts should be made to preserve the product.

Strict time limitations exist to commence a suit for a products liability.  In New York State, the time to commence a suit involving a dangerous product may depend upon who is injured, who the potential defendant is, as well as the enactment of new laws and judicial decisions interpreting the law.  Computing the time limitations is not a simple matter and a person should promptly consult an experienced New York product liability attorney after seeking medical treatment.

CLIENT REVIEWS

    I did not think myself that we will win this difficult matter and become victorious, especially after being rejected by numerous other attorneys…but your professionalism Brett, dedication and determination, not to mention a huge heart, was how we prevailed

ALEKSANDER J.

    When I brought my situation to a local attorney he directed me to Brett Nomberg, and I’m so glad he did. Someone always was able to give me a status of what was going on. Your team made my wife and I realize we were dealing with a truly professional firm and at the same time, sympathetic to our needs. Great job. Excellent Customer Service.

GREG M.

    I want to thank you for all the help and support that was given to my parents by you and your colleagues. Your firm’s time, effort and dedication, is without question second to none and this led to a successful settlement

PAT R.

    We can’t thank you enough for the wonderful representation you provided and for believing in our case. It was very vindicating to have a judge and jury decide in our favor.
