Bronx Product Liability Lawyer

Helping New Yorkers Seek Compensation After an Injury

In the advance of cutting-edge technology, new products are continuously being invented, manufactured, and sold every day. While this level of rapid production might seem excellent for the American economy, there are times when the overly fast pace of disseminating different objects for consumers to buy takes a terrible toll. When companies do not properly check the safety of their products, or neglect to include thorough instructions and warnings about how to use their products, innocent customers can instantly become unfortunate victims.

Prisco P.C. as soon as possible. As an experienced product liability lawyer in the Bronx, he is ready to support you in pursuing a lawsuit for the harm you suffered on account of a manufacturer’s neglect and irresponsibility.

New York Product Liability Statute of Limitations

Under New York statute of limitations law, you must begin your product liability case within three years of your injury. In some situations, the delay of the statute of limitations "clock" may happen based on when the injury was first discovered. For example, prolonged exposure to dangerous substances over time can cause harm later in the individual's life. The "clock" would start when the injury was discovered, even though the exposure to the dangerous substance had been happening for a longer period of time.

If you were injured by a defective product, reach out to a product liability lawyer near you as soon as possible to ensure that your case is within the statute of limitations. Consider the fact that it takes time to gather evidence or do further investigation -- at The Law Offices of Michael James P. Prisco P.C. we are ready to help you recover damages.

What Determines a Product as Dangerously Defective or Improperly Safeguarded?

There are many cases in industrial settings where workers or the manufacturers of a product are assembling a product too quickly, and they do not check whether a product is defective. If a product is simply sloppily put together, this does not necessitate a lawsuit. However, if the product’s defect causes any kind of illness or injury, then you can claim that the product was either defective in its design or the process of assembly.

Manufacturers and design engineers have the responsibility of carefully checking that an item, along with its process of construction, are safe for the consumer. If, for some reason, there is no ability to eliminate or guard against all forms of harm potentially caused by the product, the manufacturer must include clear warnings that the product can result in injury or death if not handled properly, according to provided instructions. When a product does not include these safety features, it is hazardous even if it was correctly assembled.

Types of Product Liability Cases

Technically, any kind of product can pose a dangerous situation if it has defective parts, was improperly assembled, or did not include clear warning labels. However, certain products tend to repeatedly result in injuries more than others.

Just a few examples of liability cases that are extremely common include those dealing with defective or improperly designed:

  • Automobile parts
  • Batteries (particularly lithium batteries used in mobile devices such as phones, computers, cameras, or e-cigarettes)
  • Electric or battery-operated power tools
  • Machine parts
  • Airplane parts
  • Cranes or other construction equipment
  • Children’s toys
  • Cleaning products

Powerful Guidance in Complex Situations

When you or a loved one have been a victim of a product liability injury, it can be difficult even knowing where to start with filing a claim. Unlike other personal injury cases, such as an automobile accident or medical malpractice case, you might have no idea who caused your suffering. Moreover, many of these cases do not involve a single individual, but an entire corporation or manufacturing company. Do not be anxious about the idea of confronting a massive business or organization when you have Michael J. Prisco on your side. No matter how large the opposing side is, they have the responsibility of compensating for the injury and pain you have suffered.
