Accidents and Injuries Involving Defective Products

Whenever someone manufactures a good, that person is required to follow a certain set of regulations that ensure the product is safe for general use. Cars, for example, must have working brakes; children's cribs cannot be built in such a way that they cause accidental suffocation. Sadly, many companies cut corners to increase their profits and the result is a product that can cause harm to the consumer.

Defective products can be found in a wide range of industries, including:

  • Children's toys
  • Appliances
  • Automobiles
  • Recreational equipment
  • Sporting equipment
  • Tools
  • Pharmaceutical drugs

Why Are Defective Products Even an Issue?

Production demands and the never-ending drive for increased profits can result in a company using substandard parts to build a product and/or sell it without proper testing. A product can also be defective due to a poor design, or come with inadequate warning labels or instructions for its use. When a defective product causes injuries, the manufacturer and any third parties responsible for the defect, can be held liable for damages.

If you or a loved one were injured by a defective product, contact a Long Island personal injury lawyer from The Odierno Law Firm, P.C. to find out if you qualify for compensation due to the manufacturer's negligence.

Fighting for Victims' Rights on Long Island

If you were injured by a defective product in a job-related accident, you may already be receiving workers' compensation to cover your medical expenses and the costs of rehabilitation. Many times a civil lawsuit can also be filed against the manufacturer of the product that caused the accident, however. This can extend your compensation and include damages for the following:

  • Pain
  • Suffering
  • Emotional trauma

You have a right to pursue whatever options you have regarding compensation, and you should take advantage of any opportunity to cover your injury-related losses.
