It used to be that consumers could count on government agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to ensure that products were safe before coming to market.
More and more, however, large manufacturing and importing corporations have been gaining influence with government agencies, leaving the consumer to twist in the wind after an injury. The implication is that if the defective product was approved by a government agency, the courts will consider it safe for consumer use.

To recover money for a product liability injury, your New York product liability attorney will have to show that the product had dangerous defects or design insufficiencies that should have been foreseen and eliminated before entering the marketplace. In addition, your case will have to clearly prove that the defect or insufficiency directly resulted in your accident and the accident directly resulted in damages.
How Can We Handle Your Case Without Charging Attorney Fees?
The courts have ruled that litigation law firms can handle personal injury claims on a contingent fee basis. That means that you won’t pay attorney fees unless you recover money for your injury or wrongful death claim. It is the only fair way to ensure that victims who do not have the financial resources to pay for a lawyer up front, will have equal access to the law. To get paid, we collect a percentage of the amount you recover.
