Defective Products

Each year, thousands of consumers across the country are injured by defective products.

In New York State, a product can be defective based upon a faulty design, a manufacturing defect or by the manufacturer’s failure to include adequate warnings and instructions. 

The attorneys at Lipsitz & Ponterio are experienced in representing consumers who have suffered serious injuries from defective products made by companies responsible for their safe manufacture and design. Below is just one example of a case of a Lipsitz & Ponterio client seriously injured by a company’s defective press machine.

25-YEAR-OLD AWARDED OVER $5 MILLION FOR CATASTROPHIC INJURIES TO HIS LEFT ARM CAUGHT IN A DEFECTIVE PRESS MACHINE

Our client was working for a company that manufactured custom-made furniture.  His job was to operate a press machine, which involved cleaning glued deposits inside the press.  While cleaning the press, our client’s left arm became caught in the press machine resulting in the loss of his left arm, cut off at the elbow.

Lipsitz & Ponterio proved that the manufacturer of the press machine failed to include safety devices, which would have prevented this serious accident.

Our client received a structured settlement valued in excess of $5 Million. 

He is currently married with a small family and a thriving business.
