Long Island Product Liability Attorneys Helping Defective Product Injury Victims Pursue Compensation

Seeking justice for accident victims in Suffolk and Nassau Counties from negligent large companies

Whether you purchase a new car, a power tool, a toy for your child or even laundry detergent, you expect that product to be devoid of defects and safe for its intended use. But consumers often suffer life-changing injuries because of avoidable manufacturing errors or faulty product design.

When you or a loved one sustains injuries from a dangerous product, pursuing compensation can pit you against powerful manufacturers with legal teams focused on avoiding liability. The product liability attorneys at Jakubowski, Robertson, Maffei, Goldsmith & Tartaglia, LLP in Long Island have the dedication, skills and resources needed to help you achieve a just resolution of your claim.

The complexity of claims pertaining to defective product injuries

Consumer products can become dangerous at any point from the time of their manufacture through use by a consumer. The Legal Information Institute at Cornell University Law School cites an entire chain of parties who may have full or partial liability, including the following:

  • A manufacturer of component parts
  • A manufacturer that assembles the parts
  • A wholesaler
  • A retail store owner

This list does not include the parties responsible for carrying a product or its parts from one place to another. Since many parties may share liability, our attorneys conduct thorough investigations to expose all issues that may have led to the injury of our client.

Types of product defects

The law typically identifies the following three types of product defects:

  • Design defects occur before a product reaches the manufacturing phase. A manufacturer may fail to recognize design that makes a product dangerous to use.
  • Manufacturing defects generally do not apply to all products in a product line. They occur when specific issues arise during the manufacturing process.
  • Marketing defects apply less frequently to advertising than to the failure of a company to provide clear and accurate product-use instructions and warnings about product dangers.

If you suffer injuries from a flawed product, you may face a stressful legal battle against several powerful companies. If possible, retain all product parts, packaging and instructions. Then schedule a consultation with our experienced attorneys.
