Dangerous Product Injuries
As consumers, people trust that the products they buy are safe to use, yet too often dangerous products result in serious personal injuries nonetheless. Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers are responsible for providing their products to the public without any dangerous defects, and potentially harmful products must be labeled appropriately to warn the buyer of any possible risks. Generally, dangerous product attorneys file claims based on state laws, citing negligence, breach of warranty, or strict liability. The person who was injured typically only needs to sue the seller of the dangerous or defective product, and the seller, in turn, will bring the distributor and manufacturer into the suit.
Dangerous product injuries can occur due to design defects, manufacturing flaws, or a failure to warn consumers properly. Product liability cases can involve a range of products, including malfunctioning brakes that cause auto accidents, contaminated food and drink, and items that lack warning labels. If you or someone you know has been injured by a dangerous product, contact our team of attorneys serving Westchester County, White Plains, and all of New York. We can help you prove that a product defect was responsible for your injury and hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions.
Sexual Assault Representation
Because sexual assault victims often feel ashamed about their traumatic experiences, many cases go unreported. The sexual assault attorneys at Worby Vecchio Edelman, LLP offer personal support to individuals and families to help them cope with, and recover from, this type of abuse. Sexual assault includes rape, attempted rape, child molestation, and sexual harassment. Any form of unwanted sexual contact or attention, from physical encounters to verbal threats, may be reason to file a sexual assault lawsuit. In court, the punishments for a sexual offender can include criminal or civil penalties.
In civil cases, attorneys are able to help sexual assault victims obtain compensation for the physical and emotional damages that result from these experiences. Detachment from friends and family, reliving the assault in nightmares or daydreams, anxiety, depression, and avoidance of certain places and situations can result from sexual assault, in addition to other psychological scars that can take years to overcome.
