Determining Who Is Responsible for Your Injury
At our law firm, we believe in holding the responsible party accountable and maximizing the compensation you obtain for an injury that was not your fault. In a product liability claim, there are quite a few parties who could be ultimately responsible, such as:
Potentially anyone in the chain starting from the design of the product to the selling of the product to the consumer could be responsible for a product defect. Under New York law, a product manufacturer or distributor may be liable for injury or death caused by a defective product under several different legal theories:
- Strict liability for placing an unreasonably dangerous product in commerce
- Negligence in the manufacturing, sale or distribution process
- Failure to warn consumers about a known product defect
- Breach of implied warranties of fitness for use and merchantability under the Uniform Commercial Code
Mr. Maurer has more than 35 years of experience handling these types of claims and other personal injury claims. He has the experience, skills and resources to effectively handle your claim. He will consult with engineers, product design specialists and other professionals with appropriate technical expertise. These experts can identify the mode of product failure and what the product's designer or manufacturer should have done to minimize the possibility of an accident. If necessary, these experts can provide compelling testimony in court. Our law firm will seek full compensation for all of your losses.
