Product Liability

NY Product Liability Lawyer | Defective Products Attorney

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. The CPSC works to ensure the safety of consumer products and hascontributed significantly to the 30% decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products for the past 30 years.

Nevertheless, dangerous and harmful products still manage to find their way into the marketplace every year. The CPSC recalls hundreds of products annually and consumer injuries from defective products are common. If you suffer serious injury from the use of a dangerous product, you have the right to pursue fair and complete compensation for medical expenses, pain, suffering and rehabilitation.

At the law office of Rudolph F.X. Migliore, P.C., our personal injury lawyers have handled many product liability cases and have fought to obtain fair compensatory settlements for our clients.

  • Negligence
