Handling Complex Products Liability Cases

When manufacturers design and build tools, machines and other equipment, they need to produce items that provide the function they are purported to do, and need to turn a profit for the manufacturer. They also need to produce a product that is safe to operate each time it is used.

Unfortunately, products are often dangerous to use; malfunction, injuring the user in the process; or becoming unsafe after malfunctioning, leading to a later injury. If you have been injured at home, on the job or elsewhere while using an unsafe product, contact the product liability law firm of Robert A. Solomon, P.C. We have an office in Newark, New Jersey, and two in New York from which to handle cases for injured clients.

Helping People Injured By Unsafe Products

The lawyers at Robert A. Solomon, P.C., have helped thousands of people obtain settlements and jury verdict awards for personal injuries, including injuries resulting from defective products. Injuries from defective products can result from household items like electric space heaters, washing machines, power tools like circular saws, curling irons and other items. If a circular saw can be operated without the safety guard in place, or a space heater does not turn off when tipped over onto its front, the product may be defective.

On-the-job injuries can also result from defective products. In a recent case, our client's hand was crushed at work from a roller machine that was missing a safety mechanism. We requisitioned company records to determine the manufacturer, and obtained a $250,000 award for our client. If you have been injured on the job, including a construction site, you may be eligible for a defective product suit even if you are currently receiving workers' compensation benefits.

Each case is unique and results will vary depending on the facts of each case.
