What Is Product Liability In New York City?

Product liability cases involve extensive amounts of investigation, research and focused determination to get a successful result. In addition, large corporations and manufacturers will not easily back down when facing claims for liability.

  • Design defects

You should have peace of mind knowing that the product is safe and will perform its intended purpose. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.  Each year, thousands of people in the United States are injured from dangerous or defective products.  If you have been harmed as a result of a poorly designed or manufactured product, you may be eligible to receive compensation.

What Is the Statute of Limitations for Product Liability Claims in New York?

In New York, the statute of limitations for product liability claims is three years. This means that a lawsuit arising from a defective product must be commenced within three years of the date of injury, or the date of discovery of the injury. Failure to file a timely lawsuit may result in dismissal by the court, regardless of the merits of the underlying claim.

If you have been injured by a defective product, it is essential that you contact a knowledgeable lawyer who can help you determine your rights and represent you against large manufacturing companies.

What Damages Can Be Recovered in a Product Liability Case in New York?

In a New York product liability claim, you can recover damages for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Other damages

Product liability law places the burden of proof on the injured party, meaning that he or she must present evidence showing a direct link between physical injuries and product defect. This causal relationship may be difficult to prove without an experienced advocate on your side.
