All product defects are dangerous, and responsible persons should be held accountable.

Determining Liability for a Product Liability Incident

More than one party can hold liability in a product liability lawsuit. Other than the manufacturer, other parties in the chain of distribution such as designers, wholesalers, retailers, and promoters can be found liable. 

The court generally requires that the defendant be liable for either of these three defects.

  • Design defect
  • Manufacturing defect
  • Marketing defect

Three theories are usually applied to prove liability. If you were injured by a product, your attorney could file a case based on either negligence, breach of warranty or strict liability. 


In this case, the aim is to prove that the defendant was careless, and the carelessness resulted in your injuries.

Breach of Warranty

This theory aims to prove that the manufacturer or reseller of the product implicitly or expressly guaranteed the product would work in a certain way, but it did not. 

Strict Liability

In this case, the victim does not need to prove that the defendant knew or didn’t know about the defect. All they need to do is to prove that the defect was there and that it caused their injuries.

Contact product liability lawyers from Braude Law to help you with which theory to base your lawsuit on. The theory of recovery applied to your lawsuit does not affect the amount of damages you recover.

Steps to Take After a Product Liability Incident


Your health is very important, and you should see a doctor immediately after being harmed by a product. The medical report will also be a documentation of your injuries, which comes in handy during your lawsuit. Also, follow the doctor’s treatment plan.


If possible, preserve the defective product and any receipts, packaging, and user manuals it came with. If it is impossible to keep it, take as many pictures of the product as possible. This evidence comes in handy when suing the liable parties.


In addition to keeping the product, keep clear notes on what happened, photos from the incident, witness statements, and medical records. When you file a product liability claim, these documents will paint a clear picture.


Product liability cases are complex, and you will be up against powerful lawyers hired by the defendants. Get an experienced New York product liability attorney to help you build a strong product liability case against the defendant.

How Long Do You Have to File a Product Liability Claim?

Just like other personal injury claims in New York, product liability claims are governed by the statute of limitations. There is a strict time limit by which you should file your product liability claim from the day the accident happened. Although there are some exceptions to the rule, you will lose your right to file a lawsuit after that. Contact an experienced products liability lawyer as soon as possible so that they can advise on timelines and other legal options.

What Type of Compensation Can I Recover?

If you were hurt as a result of using a defective product, you have the right to be compensated for all past and future expenses arising from your injury. These include:

  • Medical bills 
  • Lost wages 
  • Future medical treatment   
  • Loss of your future earning capacity
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation

You are also entitled to damages that can’t be exactly quantified, such as:

  • Pain and suffering       
  • Emotional distress       
  • Loss of enjoyment of life      
  • Loss of your loved one’s company or support in wrongful death cases
  • Property damage
