Brooklyn Product Liability Lawyer
Have you been hurt or made ill by a defective product? If so, you might be able to seek financial damages to cover your losses by working with a Brooklyn product liability lawyer.
Manufacturers are responsible for creating products that meet certain safety standards. If you were harmed by a product that malfunctioned or was somehow faulty, you might have grounds for filing an injury claim. To be successful, negligence must be established and the value of your claim fully assessed, something that a Brooklyn product liability lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP can help you with.
Who’s Responsible for a Defective Product?
The most important aspect of any product liability or injury case is proving that someone else was responsible. This is the concept of negligence. If you’ve been injured by a defective product, your lawsuit would typically be against the manufacturer. However, the distributor, retailer, or installer might also have liability, depending on the type of product and the case.
In some scenarios, even the marketing company could be liable if they made false advertising claims regarding the safety or functionality of the product.
Compensation in Product Liability Cases
Your Brooklyn product liability lawyer can estimate what your claim is worth and will work to get you as much money as possible. We cannot provide an exact figure without first reviewing all of the facts, but you should expect compensation for all of your financial and non-economic damages:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical bills, including projected future costs
- Lost wages and income
- Physical therapy
- Property damage
- Lost enjoyment of life
You should keep track of any expenses you have had or losses you have suffered after being injured by a defective product. Even the smallest expenses can be compensated, such as the cost of taking a cab to the doctor.
We might also be able to ask for punitive damages. This is money intended to punish the manufacturer for creating a product that could harm the general public. These are often awarded as an incentive to prevent companies from continuing to sell something harmful.
The stronger your case is, the more money you could receive. We need to conduct discovery and gather evidence to demonstrate manufacturer negligence. This typically involves extensive research into the manufacturing methods, quality control process, advertising claims, and so on. Depositions may also be conducted to ask them questions while under oath and to uncover more data.
If you have pictures, an eyewitness, or anything else that could assist in proving the case, let us know.
Your Case Could Settle
The other side might approach you with a settlement offer. In this case, expect it to be lower than you deserve to start. Our job will be to negotiate on your behalf to increase the size of the offer. If they are unwilling to propose a fair settlement amount, your best option will be to go to trial and ask a jury for the verdict you desire.
We can represent you in both scenarios.
