Hudson Valley Product Liability Law Firm – Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Know if I Have a Product Liability Claim?

A product liability claim can generally be divided into three categories: a negligence claim, a strict liability claim, and a breach of warranty claim.

For negligence cases, you must show that a manufacturer or retailer was aware, or should have been aware, of a potentially dangerous product defect based on known or available information.

Strict liability means that you do not have to prove that the producer was negligent or that there was a manufacturing or design defect. Instead, you just have to show that you were injured because the product was unreasonably dangerous.

In breach of warranty actions, the producer of a product had guaranteed its performance or characteristics, but one of those qualities had failed, resulting in your injuries.
