        I was hit head on in a car accident and had got injured. I contacted Mike Ranzenhofer and he got started the process of getting money for me for my pain and suffering and future medical bills. Every time I called or came to his office he always took his time to help me. And we eventually won the case. He is an amazing lawyer and person himself and I would fully recommend him to anyone.

        Rochester Product Liability LawyersHas a defective product of any kind caused injury to you or someone you know? If you or someone you know has been injured by a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation through a product liability claim. A defect in the product does not necessarily have to be in the design, it could also be a lack of sufficient warning to consumers on the label of the product. If you’ve suffered an injury due to a defective product, contact our experienced Rochester product liability lawyers to determine if you have a case.

        Children Are Dying From Dangerous Products Because Of This Law

        Your product liability claim could be made against the manufacturer of the product or the seller of the product as they would assume responsibility for making the defected product available to consumers. Manufacturers and consumers are liable not only to you but to innocent bystanders as well.

        Oftentimes, products are made with the help of multiple manufactures who make a specific part of the overall item. These manufacturers are liable as well. Similarly, if the product was distributed by middlemen to other distributors, those middlemen can assume responsibility for the defective product as well.

        So, how do product liability claims begin?

        A claim must be filed by either the consumer who was injured, or by someone the product was loaned or given to. Although there are no federal product liability laws, most states have them. To file a claim, you should contact one of our experienced Rochester product liability lawyers to handle your products liability claim.

        Consumers, and bystanders can also file product liability claims. The federal government does not have product liability laws but most states do.  If you’d like to file a claim, we would recommend contacting one of our experienced product liability lawyers.

        No matter what jurisdiction you live in, to prove a product liability case your attorney must prove that the product is defective.

        Your attorney must prove that the product was defective in one of these three areas:

        Manufacturing defects

        Manufacturing defects occur during the production of the item.

        Defects in marketing

        Defects in marketing are either improper instructions or failure to warn consumers of the possible dangers of using a product.

        Design defects

        Design defects refer to the time before the product was actually manufactured

        If you feel you have a legitimate product liability claim, don’t hesitate to call Friedman & Ranzenhofer, P.C. Our dedicated Rochester product liability lawyers have decades of experience handling defective product cases and can help you obtain the compensation you deserve for the injuries you’ve sustained.
