Products Liability / Defective Product Injuries

Suffolk County Long Island Product Liability Defective Product Injury Lawyer

From tires to pharmaceuticals to cribs: what happens when they cause injury?

Most of us take for granted that the products we use every day are safe, that manufacturers take safety measures and that regulations help ensure adherence to standards. Unfortunately, we sometimes find out the hard way that this is not always the case.

When products fail because of negligence on the part of a designer, engineer, manufacturer — or even a distributor or retailer, accidents happen. And whether due to an inadequate child seat mechanism or a defective electrical appliance, the resulting injuries can be devastating, including:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Severe burns
  • Quadriplegia
  • Amputation
  • Paraplegia
  • Wrongful death

At Birzon, Strang, and Associates, a Suffolk personal injury law firm, we hold manufacturers and others accountable for their carelessness. We make those responsible compensate you for your injuries, and help ensure that nobody else, adult or child, is harmed because those organizations did not live up to their obligations to exercise reasonable care.

We know how to prove your Product Liability / Defective Product claim 

In a defective product claim, it must be shown that you were injured, that a defective product caused your injuries and that you were using the product as intended. As Suffolk attorneys with over 30 years of experience each, in helping people throughout Long Island and Suffolk and Nassau County who have been harmed by defective products, we know what the counter arguments will be and build a strategically sound case on your behalf. We help you recover damages for injuries caused by defective products, including:

  • Car batteries
  • Prescription or OTC drugs
  • Tires
  • Sports equipment
  • Brakes
  • Power tools
  • Seatbelts
  • Kitchen appliances
  • High chairs
  • Protective gear (goggles, gloves, etc.)
  • Cribs
  • Flammable clothing
  • Strollers
  • Ladders and step stools
  • Toys with lead paint or inadequate warnings
  • Bunk beds

The U.S. Product Safety Commission maintains a list of potentially dangerous products and products that have been recalled. If you or a family member has been injured by a defective product, whether it has been recalled or not, we will fight to make sure that you get the best possible compensation.

  • "“I was recently in a very bad motorcycle accident, I was recommended to Barrie from a close friends mother and am very glad I was. Since the day of my call to Barrie she was committed to helping me in every aspect of the process, and any question that me or my entire family had. She got me the first part of my settlement very fast, and when the insurance companies tried to fight the second part she was relentless on getting me what I was needed. Furthermore she was successful on me getting the entire settlement and kept me up to date the entire time the process went on. She is self-less, attentive, easy to communicate with, easy to get in contact with, and was respectfully aggressive to get what I the client needed. I will highly recommend her to anyone that needs a lawyer. I am very grateful for her.”"  -Jesse
