The Law Offices of William K. Goldfarb defend clients seriously injured by defective products. Every year, thousands of people sustain serious injuries from defective and dangerous products. Sadly, many of these injuries could be avoided if the manufacturers or distributors of these products took additional steps to ensure safety. Product Liability cases seek to provide compensation for injuries sustained from the use of defective and dangerous products. Product liability cases can be established if you are able to prove the following:
- The product was defective
- The defect existed prior to the manufacturer releasing the product
- The defect caused you damages and/or injuries
Our mission at The Law Offices of William K. Goldfarb in pursuing product liability cases is to obtain just compensation for those injured by the negligent actions of product manufacturers and distributors, thereby creating incentives to produce safer products and provide sufficient warning of the dangers of their products, ultimately resulting in the saving of lives and limbs.
A Union County resident purchased a weed eater for use at his home from a local home improvement store. He used the product on two separate occasions with no issues. During the third use of the product in question, parts from the rotating spool broke free at a high speed ricocheting off the man’s house striking him in his eye. After having product inspected by an expert engineer, it was found that the parts broke free from the rotating spool because of inferior quality materials used in the manufacturing of the product in question. Sadly, the gentleman who suffered this accident has lost most all the vision in his right eye and is legally blind.
A lawsuit was filed but this case was ultimately settled several weeks after the mediation for a confidential amount. The Manufacturer eventually recalled the product in question.
