Dangerous Product Injuries

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.

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.

Sexual Abuse Representation

Sexual abuse 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 abuse lawsuit. In court, the punishments for a sexual offender can include criminal or civil penalties.

Because sexual abuse victims often feel ashamed about their traumatic experiences, many cases go unreported. Our sexual abuse lawyers offer personal support to individuals and families to help them cope with, and recover from, this type of abuse. In civil cases, attorneys are able to help sexual abuse 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 abuse, in addition to other psychological scars that can take years to overcome.

Our firm is dedicated to pursuing justice for sexual abuse victims.

Animal Attack Victims

Animal attacks are dangerous, traumatizing experiences that affect millions of Americans each year. Many animal attack victims opt to file insurance claims or bear the brunt of medical expenses themselves because they are unsure if the injuries they’ve sustained could qualify for compensation.

Serving clients in Westchester County, White Plains, and throughout New York, our personal injury lawyers can help you obtain the compensation you deserve for the pain and suffering caused by an animal attack.
