Who doesn’t love testing out their new toy? Old or young we all enjoy using a gadget or product that we’ve been waiting for far too long to finally come out. But sometimes the products we purchase act in unexpected ways. We expect our belongings to be innocuous and entertaining additions to our lives, but this isn’t always the case. Due to negligent designs, improper oversight, or faulty manufacturing, our belongings may, in fact, prove to be harmful to us.
When these products strike, they can result in a wrongful death or personal injury. If such an event does happen, please get in touch with an NYC product liability, wrongful death attorney, or another pertinent lawyer. A wide range of products can potentially cause harm to the buyer.
New technology is being pushed into the market before it’s had the chance to be thoroughly tested. We’ve seen hoverboards, cars, phones, and e-cigarettes all experience malfunctions that have resulted in personal injury and death. These aren’t the only products that have been known to cause us harm.
The toys our kids play with may have chemicals in them that could harm our children. Not every product that hits the store has been vetted properly. Improper labeling may also result in injury to our little ones.
If you, a family member, or a friend has been negatively impacted by a product they’ve purchased, it’s advisable that they get in contact with a lawyer. Personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits are time-sensitive and require that actions are taken swiftly. A lawsuit will not be able to heal the hurt that you’ve experienced, but it will assist in paying medical and funeral expenses. Don’t burden yourself with financial concerns while in the midst of grieving.
