Buying a product to use for yourself or your family should never lead to injuries or illness. However, there are times when defective products end up in the hands of consumers.

Our goal is to secure the compensation you need to get you through this difficult time so you can focus on moving forward.

Understanding Brooklyn Heights defective products

Defective products are something that not many people think about, but a problem that plagues the entire country. We buy products all the time. You may not realize it, but you use hundreds or perhaps thousands of products each day. We often only hear about faulty products when they make the news, but if you look at the website that keeps track of current recalls in the country, you will see that there are hundreds of faulty products on the market.

Products become defective in a variety of ways. This can include:

  • Poor designs: All products should be thoroughly tested before they are put on the market for consumers. However, there are times when products with problems slip through the cracks (or when a company ignores the problems) and make it to the hands of consumers.
  • Manufacturing errors: Even a well-designed product can encounter manufacturing issues. Problems on the assembly line can alter or contaminate products, rendering them harmful for consumers.
  • Labeling problems: We depend on product labels to tell us what we need to know about using or consuming the product. If a label is missing pertinent information or if the information is incorrect, consumers can become injured or ill.

All industries are affected by faulty products. A cursory list at the recall website reveals problems with:

  • Toys
  • Cleaners
  • Food and beverages
  • Automobiles and auto parts
  • Appliances
  • Furniture
  • Car seats
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Medical devices
  • Electronics
  • Bicycles
  • Recreation equipment
  • And more

These cases can become incredibly complex. Your product liability lawyer will need to thoroughly investigate what happened and work to gather evidence of a company’s negligence. This can include examining the product’s history, comparing your case to others around the country, gathering your medical records, and more.
