Product Liability Cases
Product Liability Cases
When you purchase a product, whether it’s a tub of margarine or a new car, you expect the product has been carefully designed, produced, packaged, and shipped, and that it is now safe for you to use. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, defective or unsafe products cause 29.4 million injuries and 21,400 deaths each year.
Virtually any product can cause injury if it is defective, but some types of products that most frequently cause injuries may include, but are not limited to:
- Medical devices/implants
- Real estate
- Commercial jets
An injury caused by a defective product can cause serious, lifelong injuries. When this happens, you may have to deal with multiple hospital and doctor visits, even missing work and possibly losing your job. But the insurance company is at work—trying to reduce your settlement.

Product Liability Injury Case Types
There are almost as many types of product liability cases as there are products. We take an individual approach to each investigation, understanding the product, how it is supposed to work, and what went wrong to cause your injury. We go over physical evidence, police or accident reports, and even interview eyewitnesses when they’re available.
Common case types include car accidents where a flaw in vehicle design led to the crash, contaminated food, beverage, or drug products, products that explode or catch fire, defective medical devices leading to death or injury, airplanes where a flaw in the airplane design contributed to the crash, and many others.

Product Injury Liability & Damage Recovery
It is the responsibility of any manufacturer to produce a reasonably safe product. Taking this responsibility seriously protects consumers and employees alike. But sometimes companies fail in this responsibility. When they do, people can be harmed due to the negligent conduct of the product manufacturer.
The company is then liable for injuries or deaths that happen because of their negligence. If you or a loved one have been hurt by a defective product, the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, P.A. may be able to help you receive compensation.
