Product Liability Attorneys in Kingston
We Take on Negligent Corporations
The Kingston product liability lawyers at Basch & Keegan LLP represent consumers, workers, patients, children, and others harmed by dangerous and defective products sold in the marketplace and used in homes, offices, work-sites, schools, and more. We’re trial lawyers known for obtaining excellent results for victims of serious injuries and wrongful death. We have the experience and know-how when it comes to product liability lawsuits.
Defective Products Can Cause Catastrophic Injuries and Even Death
Product liability is the area of personal injury law that holds manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, and retailers responsible for any consumer injuries caused by dangerous and defective products.
There are three major types of product liability claims:
Design defect claims: When a product’s design is inherently dangerous or useless — no matter how it is manufactured — there is a design defect.
Manufacturing defect claims: When a product is made unsafely — perhaps due to poor workmanship or the use of sub-par materials — there is a manufacturing defect.
Marketing defect claims: When a manufacturer fails to warn consumers of non-obvious risks associated with the use (or foreseeable misuse) of a product, there is a marketing defect.
Sometimes products are recalled (either by the manufacturer or the federal government) when a potentially dangerous defect is discovered. Unfortunately, recalls often happen only after people have suffered serious injury.
Be Aware of Potentially Dangerous Products in the Marketplace
Virtually any product can give rise to a product liability lawsuit if it’s not designed, manufactured, and sold with consumer safety in mind.
Here are some of the unfortunately common types of product liability cases:
Dangerous or defective automotive components, such as airbags, ignition switches, seat-belts, and braking systems
Dangerous building and construction materials
Dangerous or defective medical equipment
Dangerous prescription and over-the-counter drugs
Inadequate drug warning labels
Contaminated foods and beverages
Dangerous cosmetics and household chemicals
Dangerous or defective appliances, such as water heaters and washing machines
Dangerously flammable clothing
Dangerous or defective children’s products, including car seats, formulas, and toys
At Basch & Keegan LLP, we stand by the principle that most accidents should never happen. This is especially true in product liability cases. Too often, manufacturers cut corners to cut costs, and consumers pay the price — not with their wallets, but with their health.
