Advances in technology have truly revolutionized the way we live our lives. From the cell phones that allow us to contact our loved ones when we are apart to the cars that allow us to get to work and school, we employ hundreds of devices on a daily basis. While these products are designed and tested to ensure that they are safe for consumers, there are always risks that a product could cause harm to its user.
A defective product may not seem like a big deal, but depending on what the product is and the damage it can cause, you could be facing serious injury or property damage. For example, a fire extinguisher that fails to put out a small flame could end up costing you your entire house if the flames spread. It can be argued in this instance that the defective fire extinguisher is responsible for the damage to your house as well as any burn injuries you suffered, since a properly functioning fire extinguisher would have prevented the destruction.
Unfortunately any one of the hundreds of products New York residents use can be defective, and any one of those defects could cause damage or injuries. These defects could be in the design or the manufacturing of the product, so there is often no surefire way to tell that a product is defective until it is too late.
Even though you may not be able to predict or prevent a defective product injury, you can react to it. With the help of an attorney, you can file a lawsuit to hold the designers or manufacturers of the defective product responsible for the damages.
