Harmed By A Faulty Product Or Bad Food?
Have you ever been injured while trying to use a product you just bought or trying to eat food recently purchased from a local grocery or fast food store? If your answer is yes, you may have a products liability claim. Dangerous or defective products result in the catastrophic injury or death of thousands of consumers each year throughout the United States.
Products sold to the public should be safe and suitable for their intended use. The product designer, manufacturer and distributor have laws they are supposed to follow to not only make their products safe to the public, but to supply those products with warranties and warnings.
We obtained $200,000 for a Nassau County man injured by a defective table saw. It partially amputated the tips of three fingers.

There are generally three categories of product defects:
- Design defects — failure to design a product in conformity with applicable standards

- Marketing defects — failure to warn the consumer of a danger with improper labeling
