Categories of Product Liability
Strict LiabilityStrict liability applies to most legal claims over dangerous products. It must be shown that the product was unsafe, the seller intended the product to reach the consumer in its current form, and the consumer was injured by the product.
NegligenceProving negligence in product liability cases is rarely simple. In these cases, lawyers must demonstrate that the product maker or distributor owed the consumer a duty of care and that this duty was breached.
Breach of WarrantyFor breach of warranty cases, there must be an expressed or implied warranty with regard to a product. A legal claim is sought when the product does not meet the terms of the warranty and causes injury or harm as a result.

Types of Product Defects
Design defects mean that a product is inherently dangerous from the outset. In defective automobiles, for example, design defects may lead to brake failure or faulty ignition switches. In children's toys, sharp edges may be part of the design, presenting a risk to children.
With manufacturing defects, errors in the fabrication or production make the item unsafe. In car safety seats, for example, issues with the materials or craftsmanship could lead to sharp shards of plastic striking passengers during a collision. Poor quality control on an assembly line may result in electronic devices that are prone to electrocution and fires that can cause permanently disfiguring burns.
Insufficient Product Testing
Products should undergo safety testing to ensure they meet industry standards. Unfortunately, some products are rushed onto the market untested, without regard for consumers. Some companies have found ways to circumvent safety testing and clinical trials. The dangers of these untested products may not be apparent until months or even years later.
Distribution and Marketing Defects
A product may be safe, but issues with distribution can result in dangerous defects. An improperly shipped bike, for example, may have a bent or cracked frame that makes accidents more likely. Tires that have been stored in poor conditions could be more prone to blowouts. Sometimes the marketing claims regarding a product are misleading and lead to hazards for consumers.

Types of Compensation That Can Be Collected in Product Liability Cases
During a defective product lawsuit, your Brooklyn product liability attorney will seek maximum compensation to cover the injuries and other losses you experienced. There are a few distinct types of compensation we can help you collect:
A legal settlement may be reached before a case goes to court. In fact, many product liability lawsuits are resolved prior to an actual trial. Your product liability lawyer will attempt to negotiate a fair settlement that addresses the hardships that you have faced.
If a product liability lawsuit goes to court, compensatory damages are sought by your product liability attorney. These damages are intended to cover your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering related to the injury caused by the defective product.
Punitive damages may also be sought by your product liability lawyer. These are intended to punish the product designer, manufacturer, or distributor for any especially negligent actions. These damages are not tied to any material losses or hardships.
