Defective Products

Mr. Burton Padove has combined his medical/ legal expertise with his personal injury experience to represent plaintiffs’ interests in a variety of product liability cases based on theories of strict liability, negligence and breach of warranty. In fact, Mr. Padove is skilled at locating experts to testify about defective products in order to help substantiate the validity of claims. The types of the products under the scope of product liability include: pharmaceutical drugs, industrial or manufacturing component parts, construction equipment, lay products, food and drink.

There are many hazards associated with everyday products. In some cases, warnings about the product are displayed on the product. In other cases, the warning about the risk is not displayed on the product at all. Still, in other cases, the hazard could have been prevented if the manufacturer designed out the flaw that created the hazard. Finally, there are cases in which the product’s safeguard failed to adequately protect the user. Product liability lawsuits allow people who have been injured by products to receive financial compensation for their injuries. Product liability lawsuits help to improve warnings about products and allow for the recall of products that should not be on the market. Mr. Padove is intimately involved in lawsuits against the makers of defective drugs such as Avandia, Levaquin, Yaz, Yasmin, Ocella, and Gadolinium-based Contrast Dye used in MRI testing.
