Product LiabilityDefective products put people like you at risk every day. Flawed products can lead to serious injuries or even death. Daniel Horowitz is a personal injury attorney with decades of experience to get you compensation for your injuries. If you were injured by a defective product, our firm is here to fight those legally responsible.

Depending on the unique facts of your case, you may be able to hold manufacturers, retailers, or other entities related to the distribution of the product liable for damages. Our team is here to represent you through a personal injury lawsuit for your defective product injuries.

In product liability cases, you can make a strict liability claim against the at-fault party, whether the manufacturer, designer, or marketer. Strict liability means that you only need to prove that the product was unreasonably dangerous when used for its intended purpose. For these cases, the product can’t be modified in a substantial way before the injury and the person wasn’t aware of the defect when they were using the product that caused the injuries.

There are three different reasons why a product might be defective:

  • Design Defects: The product may have a design defect, meaning there is an error in the specifications that prevent the product from performing as it should.
  • Manufacturing Defects: The product may have a manufacturing defect, resulting from poor materials, errors in workmanship, or problems occurring during shipment or storage.
  • Marketing Defects: The product may lack sufficient warnings or instructions for correct use. Marketing materials for the product may also be misleading or show product misuse that can lead to injuries.

Unfortunately, many companies choose not to recall defective products even knowing they’re dangerous. After weighing the costs of a recall, they may choose to take their chances with lawsuits and claims payouts. This has happened before in the automotive industry where car manufacturers have refused to recall a defective model of car because the number of injuries or deaths were not deemed significant enough to justify the cost, putting people like you in danger.
