A successful product liability claim requires both the existence and proper preservation of evidence to support your claim. The following list identifies and explains some of the most significant forms of evidence in these types of claims:
- The Defect: It is necessary to show that the product in question was actually defective. For this reason, it is crucial to save the product that caused the injury, as well as any associated warranties, instructions or packaging. The product can be analyzed by various expert engineers, mechanics, researchers and other professionals. When the actual product can be thoroughly examined and tested by our experts, the likelihood of proving that the product was defective is drastically increased.
- The Experts: Experts will be able to determine whether the product was faulty because of a design defect, manufacturing error or a flaw in the warnings or instructions. Our experts can reconstruct the accident to demonstrate that the product was being used for its intended purpose. Additionally, testimony by experts can help us prove that the product was dangerous and that it could have been made safe if proper steps were taken.
- The Result: Victims of defective products must establish the extent of their illnesses or injuries that they sustained because of the faulty product. This can be proven with photos of the injury, medical records or other indications of damages. The Dietrich Law Firm P.C. is here to help. We will help build your case, compile your evidence and fight manufacturers and big companies to hold them accountable and ensure that you are compensated for your damages.

Under New York law, all products must be reasonably safe for their intended use. Manufacturers must warn of all foreseeable dangers which might not be apparent to consumers. Under the theory of strict liability a manufacturer can be held responsible for its product without the victim having to prove it was negligent. While victims can still bring a product liability claim based on negligence or breach of warranty, under strict liability all victims need to show is that the product had a defect and that they were injured as a result of that defect.
The three main types of product defects include:
- Products that are dangerous by design;
- Products that became dangerous because of mistakes made while being manufactured; and
- Failure to properly warn the consumer of the potential hazards of the product.
In many cases, a manufacturer will try to claim that its product was defect-free and attempt to place the blame on the victims. New York’s strict liability statute has been designed to protect consumers and motivate manufacturers to produce safer products.

Those who suffered injuries from defective products may be entitled to compensation. Victims can pursue recovery for damages through a product liability claim, which may include compensation for:
- Past, present and future medical expenses;
- Pain and suffering, both physical and mental;
- Diminished loss of future earning capacity;
- Loss of enjoyment of life; and
- Permanent disabilities.
If the manufacturer acted with gross negligence or recklessness, punitive damages may also be available.
