Injured by a Dangerous or Defective Product?
Western New York Product Liability Attorneys
Product liability is a field of personal injury law that primarily focuses on defective and dangerous products. Nicholas, Perot, Smith, Bernhardt & Zosh represent consumers in the Western New York area who have been injured by a product. Our personal injury lawyers help clients file claims against manufacturers or corporations who produced or sold unsafe products. Here, the term “product” encompasses an extensive array of devices and consumable goods that includes:
- Medical devices
- Drugs and medicine
- Tools and machinery
- Tobacco and food
- Toxic substances and chemicals, such as mold, asbestos, and pesticides
- Automobiles, as well as other motor vehicles, such as motorcycles and trucks
- Household appliances and products
- Automobile accessories like air bags, seat belts, child car seats and tires
- Recreational equipment and toys
- Apparel and clothing
Product liability law holds manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, and vendors accountable for defective and dangerous products. If these companies create unsafe products or fail to properly warn consumers of risks through marketing and labeling, they can be held liable for damages.
How Our Product Liability Lawyers of Western New York Can Help You
As with other personal injury cases, a plaintiff must show that the product or device caused injury and the resulting monetary damages. In addition, a plaintiff will have to prove that:
- The product is defective, making it unreasonably hazardous; and the product is in the same condition as when purchased.
- You or your loved one used the product for its intended purpose.
- You or your loved one suffered injury while using the product, and demonstrate damages resulting from its use.
The experienced product liability lawyers at Nicholas, Perot, Smith, Bernhardt & Zosh will work with you to demand compensation from the manufacturer, designer, packaging company, retailer, wholesaler and anyone else involved in the chain of production and distribution.
