Product Liability FAQs

How do I know if I have a valid product liability claim?

To determine if you have a valid product liability claim, several factors need to be considered. First, you must have suffered an injury or damage due to the defective product. Second, the product must have a defect, such as a design flaw, manufacturing defect, breach of warranty, or lack of proper warnings and instructions.


Third, the defect must be the primary cause of your injuries. As experienced product liability accident attorneys in New York, we can help you assess your situation, identify the responsible parties, and build a strong case that supports your claim.

How do New York's product liability laws differ from other states?

New York’s product liability laws are based on a combination of common law principles and legislative statutes, which may differ from the laws in other states. One key difference is that New York follows the “pure comparative negligence” rule. This means that even if you are partially at fault for your injuries, you can still recover damages in a product liability case.


However, your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault. Our team of skilled product liability accident attorneys can guide you through the intricacies of New York’s legal system and help you secure the best possible outcome for your case.

What types of compensation can I expect if my product liability claim is successful?

If your product liability claim is successful, you may be entitled to various types of financial compensation, including lost wages, medical expenses, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and property damage. Additionally, punitive damages may be awarded in certain cases to punish the responsible parties for their negligence and deter them from engaging in similar behavior in the future.

How can a New York product liability accident attorney help me with my case?

A knowledgeable and experienced New York product liability accident attorney can provide invaluable assistance by investigating your case, gathering evidence, and identifying liable parties. Moreover, they can walk you through the entire process, negotiate with insurance companies, and represent you in and out of court.

At Schwartzapfel Lawyers, we’re dedicated to giving personalized attention and guidance to ensure you have the best possible chance of securing the financial compensation you deserve for your injuries and damages.

If I'm injured by a defective product in New York, who should I sue?

In a product liability case, you can typically hold any party in the chain of distribution accountable. This may include manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, and retailers involved with the product. As such, it’s generally recommended that you include all parties in your lawsuit, as some may have more responsibility than others.

What are the different types of defects in product liability cases?

There are three (3) primary defect types: design defects, manufacturing defects, and marketing defects:

  • Design Defects: Design defects occur when a product’s design is inherently unsafe, regardless of its manufacturing process. For instance, a medical device with a flawed design could pose serious risks, leading to catastrophic injuries. Here, the entire product line might be affected, not just individual items.
  • Manufacturing Defects: These defects arise during the production or assembly of the product. It could be a flaw in a batch of airbags or a single consumer product that didn’t meet quality standards. Manufacturing defects often involve a departure from the product’s intended design, which can result in dangerous products reaching consumers.
  • Marketing Defects: Also known as failures to warn or instruct, these defects occur when there is a lack of adequate warnings or instructions about the product’s use. This can lead to personal injury if, for example, a powerful cleaning chemical doesn’t come with clear safety instructions or a car accident is caused by a tire lacking proper usage guidelines.

In any of these scenarios, the skilled product liability attorneys at our law firm can help. If you or a loved one has been affected by a defective product, our experienced team is ready to assist. We handle cases involving everything from consumer products to medical devices, and we have a track record of securing favorable verdicts and settlements in class action suits and individual product liability lawsuits.


For those in federal court or involved in multi-state mass tort litigation, our practice areas cover a broad spectrum. We work tirelessly to ensure that product manufacturers, distributors, and retailers are held accountable under strict liability laws. Whether it’s a wrongful death case or a claim involving serious injuries, our seasoned trial lawyers are prepared to fight for your rights.

How do I prove liability in a defective product case?

To establish liability, demonstrate that the product’s defect caused your injury and that you were using the product as intended. Real injuries and quantifiable damages are essential.


For personalized advice on proving liability in your case, call the qualified product liability attorneys at Schwartzapfel Lawyers. Don’t delay, as your financial future is too important to leave to chance. Accordingly, it’s best to consult with a qualified product liability attorney as quickly as possible.

When should I file a product liability claim in New York?

The timing depends on the state’s statute of limitations (SOL), which varies. In New York, for instance, the SOL for product liability claims is generally three (3) years but can range from one to four. That’s why, if you or a loved one has been injured due to a defective product, it’s likely in your best interest to file as soon as possible.
