We live in a country where ingenuity, combined with mass production, allows us to have constant access to all the goods we need to make our lives easier. Unfortunately, there are times where these products do not function as advertised. Though this is usually not the end of the world, defective products sometimes cause serious injuries to unsuspecting consumers, which is completely unacceptable. If you have recently been injured by a defective product, you most likely now require financial compensation to help you heal. That’s where we come in. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced New York City personal injury attorney to learn more about how we can help you recover the compensation you deserve and need. Here are some of the questions you may have about the claims process going forward:
What should I do if I have been injured by a defective product?
If you have been injured because of a defective product, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation. To bolster your chances of winning that compensation, you should ensure you keep the defective product and seek immediate medical treatment. These medical documents can help prove your case in the future. Furthermore, you must hire a knowledgeable New York City personal injury attorney who can identify the party responsible and satisfy the burden of proof. Generally, there are three types of product liability lawsuits. You may sue for negligent product design, a negligent product manufacturer, or even the failure to include clear warning labels/instructions with the product. If you believe you were injured because of any of the aforementioned types of negligence, you will most likely have a valid product liability claim.
How long do I have to sue for an injury in New York State?
All those who have been wrongly injured in New York State have a certain amount of time to take legal action against the party that caused their injuries. This timeframe is known as the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York, is, generally, three years, giving you, generally, three years from the date of your accident to sue the party responsible. Unfortunately, if you wait any longer than three years, you will be barred from suing. Do not let this happen. We are ready to fight for your right to a swift recovery today.
