New York City Product Liability Lawyer
All manufacturing companies have a responsibility to the public to make sure that their products are made without defect or malfunction and are designed with the safety of the consumer in mind. As a consumer, you do not have the time or resources to examine the safety of every product you purchase; you must trust manufacturing companies to act responsibly when conducting business.
Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Many times, manufacturers or product designers will cut corners in order to save money or increase their own productivity. When this happens, errors are likely, and the consumer is left to suffer the consequences. The Consumer Products Safety Commission reported that in 2002 there were approximately 212,000 emergency room visits resulting just from dangerous toys.

Keeping the Consumer Safe
Filing a personal injury lawsuit against the manufacturers, designers, and distributors of dangerous products serves several beneficial purposes. Not only can doing so help you to receive compensation for your own injuries, but it will also help you protect other consumers from experiencing the same fate.
If a defective product is allowed on the market and causes an injury, but no personal injury claim is filed, the responsible company will have no way of knowing that it released a dangerous product, nor will it have an incentive to correct its mistakes. As a result, the public will have no warning about that product’s dangers.
To help keep other innocent shoppers safe from a dangerous product or if you have been injured by a dangerous commercial product, contact the New York City dangerous product or product liability attorneys of Orlow, Orlow & Orlow, P.C. today.
