Serving Western New York
Each year an estimated 30 million people are injured by a product that is unsafe or defective. Tens of thousands of these injuries are so severe that they result in the death of the user and the devastation to a family of losing a loved one. Manufacturers of these products are often guilty of putting an inherently defective product on the market because they are more interested in their bottom line than they are consumer safety. At Feroleto Law, we believe they should be held accountable for the suffering they cause. Our product liability lawyers have advocated for the rights of the residents of the Buffalo and Niagara region for three decades, winning major victories for injured clients.
Numerous products have been the subject of recalls and litigation. They include the following things used every day by ordinary Americans:
- Household appliances
- Children’s toys
- Prescription drugs
- Medical devices
- Metal on Metal Hip Replacements
- Construction equipment
- Cribs, strollers and car seats
- Sports equipment.
Defective products are caused by three main failures on the part of the manufacturer:
- Design defects that occur in the initial conception and planning stages
- Manufacturing defects that happen during production because of a problem in assembly or quality control measures
- Failure to warn consumers of foreseeable hazards of using the product.
Product liability laws protect consumers by allowing them to seek redress in court for the harm they suffered from using a product that was defectively designed or manufactured or when warnings or instructions were incomplete or inadequate. For the legal professional, this involves intensive fact gathering, analysis of the product and the injury by engineers and medical experts, and dogged pursuit of all parties involved in the design, manufacture and marketing of faulty or dangerous products. For the injured consumer, it involves finding an experienced, competent and compassionate product liability attorney.
For more than 30 years Feroleto Law has been helping people who were injured by a dangerous or defective product at home, on the road or in their workplace. Upstate New York residents who are harmed by using a defective product may be able to recover compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, property damage, lost wages and lasting disability.
