When corporations knowingly profit from products that are defective or dangerous, they needlessly put innocent people at risk. At Steve Foley Law Firm, we hold them accountable while rigorously pursuing the financial compensation survivors and their families need to make a full recovery.
When a dangerous product results in injury or death, those affected may pursue a legal claim for product liability. This provides essential financial help for those who have been hurt and holds businesses accountable for their negligence. There are three main types of product defects:
occur when a dangerous flaw or defect is inherent in the design of a product. Even if the product is installed, maintained and used correctly, it still poses a danger. For example, a dresser that becomes unstable when drawers are pulled out, even when assembled correctly, has a dangerous design defect.
occur when a product is designed safely, but defects introduced during manufacturing depart from the original design in a dangerous way. Manufacturers are generally responsible for any injuries caused by a product that was manufactured incorrectly. Even products that were designed and manufactured correctly can be dangerous.
occur when a manufacturer or distributor fails to provide adequate safety warnings about potential injuries that could result. For example, power tools are often considered dangerous even when they are well-designed and -manufactured. If a business fails to warn consumers of the risks inherent in the product, it may be found liable for any resulting injuries.
If you or someone you love has been hurt because of a product that was designed, manufactured or marketed irresponsibly, you deserve to have your story told – and to help prevent others from experiencing the same pain. At Steve Foley Law Firm, we are proud to help people stand up for their rights through the Buffalo-Niagara area and surrounding communities.
