New York City Product Liability Attorneys

Dealing with Dangerous Products

Dangerous products pose a threat to consumers but, when injured, consumers
can hold manufacturers accountable. Under New York product liability law,
manufacturers are liable when they produce defective products that cause
harm. Attorneys do not have to prove the manufacturer was negligent”
merely that the product was defective.

Rubenstein & Rynecki is a law firm that takes on large manufacturers
in product liability lawsuits in New York.

Common Types of Products Subject to New York Product Liability Lawsuits

Automobile defects are particularly hazardous, and numerous people have
suffered injuries or died as a result. Some well-known types of defects
subject to lawsuits include:

  • Toyota’s unintended accelerations in car models caused by improperly
    installed floor mats (one case involved a runaway 2007 Toyota Camry accident
    that killed a man)
  • Ford and Firestone’s defective tires prone to tread separation, causing
    rollovers, serious injuries, and death
  • Chrysler Jeeps recalled for design flaws of positioning gas tanks below
    rear bumpers behind the rear axle, making the tank prone to rupture and
  • Airbags deploying unnecessarily or with excessive force, injuring passengers
    (especially the elderly or young children)

Dangerous Child Products

Certain products have been found dangerous for children, such as:

  • Evenflow infant car seats, recalled because they had defective handles
    capable of releasing without warning, causing infants to fall out of carriers
  • Simplicity and Graco crib models recalled because of rail defects where
    babies could become entrapped and suffocate (two deaths reported)
  • Fisher Price toys recalled because of Chinese manufacturing using lead
    paint (ingesting lead paint can cause seizures and death)
  • Water Balz recalled by Dunecraft because toys expand from marble-size to
    larger when placed in water, and children ingesting them were exposed
    to life-threatening injuries

Pharmaceutical Product Recalls

Aside from household goods, drugs with harmful side effects have also been
subject to product liability lawsuits in New York and across the nation.
Here are a few examples:

  • Zyprexa, Eli Lilly product recalled for dangerous side effects, including diabetes
  • Orhto Evra, Johnson & Johnson birth control patch with high estrogen
    levels, making women prone to blood clots, strokes, and fatal heart attacks
  • Chiron flu vaccine containing high levels of bacteria

Food Poisoning Cases

Contaminated food products have also been subject to product liability
lawsuits. Here are a few examples:

  • Sunland Inc., recall of peanut butter and almond butter (sold to Trader
    Joe’s groceries) associated with salmonella outbreak
  • Menu Foods, recall of melamine-contaminated wheat gluten in pet food, killing pets
  • Natural Selection Foods, recall because of E-coli outbreak from spinach products
