product liability



Leitner Varughese PLLC is a premier New York based law firm representing people that were seriously injured by defective and dangerous products.


Given the extensive range of products available for purchase in today's marketplace, the unfortunate reality is that some of these products cause injuries to people due to either defects in the product’s design or in the manufacturing process. New York law requires that manufacturers and sellers of products ensure that their products are not defective or dangerous to purchasers and users. Companies must provide proper warning if the product is unsafe or if using the product in a certain way could be hazardous to the user’s safety or health. 


The handling of product liability lawsuits is both time-consuming and expensive. Leitner Varughese PLLC has the trained personnel and commitment required to prosecute these often highly technical and complicated matters.




Product Liability claims typically involve the following:


  • Design Defect – The design of the product itself is unreasonably dangerous and poses a threat to the user

  • Manufacturing Defect – An error occurs while the product is being manufactured that makes it dangerous to use.

  • Failure to Warn – The manufacturer does not include any warning of potential dangers of using the item.

  • Marketing Misrepresentation – The sellers do not provide adequate instruction or warnings about using the product and misrepresent how the item should be used.


Common types of defective products include:


  • Unsafely designed motor vehicles

  • Defective car components (tires, seat belts, etc.)

  • Pharmaceutical drugs

  • Faulty medical devices

  • Faulty appliances

  • Unsafe toys, children's clothing and furniture

  • Defective power tools

  • Dangerous commercial or industrial equipment
