Product Liability:  In accordance with a longstanding and evolving common-law tradition, a manufacturer of a defective product is liable for injuries caused by the defect.  Under New York’s modern approach to products liability, a product has a defect that renders the manufacturer liable for the resulting injuries if it: (1) contains a manufacturing flaw; (2) is defectively designed; or (3) is not accompanied by adequate warnings for the use of the product. While claims based on the third category of defect, a lack of adequate warnings, can be framed in terms of strict liability or negligence, failure-to-warn claims grounded in strict liability and negligence are functionally equivalent, as both forms of a failure-to-warn claim depend on the principles of reasonableness and public policy at the heart of any traditional negligence action.

  • Manufacturing Defects: One must prove that a product did not perform as intended and that the product was defective when it left the manufacturer’s control. If so, a manufacturer may be liable for breaching a duty to its customers. It is the plaintiff and his/her attorney’s burden of proof to demonstrate that the manufacturer did not manufacture the product in accordance with its own specifications. A plaintiff must also be able to demonstrate that not only was the product not manufactured properly, but also that the defect existed when the product left the manufacturer and that the error in manufacturing caused the plaintiff’s injuries.
  • Design Defects: A defectively designed product is one which, at the time it leaves the seller’s hands, is unreasonably and unintentionally dangerous for its intended use. When investing, the focus is to review whether the design was not reasonably safe because of a substantial likelihood of harm and existence of a feasible and safer alternative design.  The facts must also demonstrate that the defective design was a substantial factor causing the plaintiff’s injury. Whether a product is defectively designed is determined by examining the industry standards in effect when it was manufactured.
  • Failure to Warn: A plaintiff must prove that (1) a manufacturer has a duty to warn (2) against dangers resulting from foreseeable uses about which it knew or should have known, and (3) that failure to do so was cause of the harm.

I would like to take the time to say Thank You to Avi Cohen and his team. He represented me on my divorce. I had gone... through a previous law firm who in 2 years did nothing for my case. After doing some research I have decided to go with Avi, wish I found him on my first go around. When I found Avi I was hopeless. However Avi and his team turned everything around for me. Avi and his team were always available , anytime of day and explained everything thoroughly. I am grateful for him and his team to finally bring this to an end. I highly recommend Avi Cohen to represent you in your matters. Forever thankful, as he knows my ex was not the easiest to deal with. Thank you for everything! I appreciate more

I was stuck in a contentious divorce and had nearly lost hope with the trajectory of my case. I initially hired a... different lawyer, who clearly had no interest in his clients unless their case seemed profitable. When I found Avi Cohen everything changed. Avi is an incredible lawyer and a true professional. He was on top on my case from the very beginning, always in contact, replying to my emails within minutes. In the lowest point of my life he cared for my case, for myself as a person, and for the wellbeing of my children. We involved a children's attorney, as he advised, and it made all the difference. He is also very understanding and takes one's financial standing into consideration. I never felt any financial pressure with him and I felt he treated me with great dignity. He advocated for myself and for my children while maintaining a positive attitude and respect for everyone involved. In the end, Avi has a great skill for finding the best solution given your unique circumstances and is unafraid to offer his level-headed honest advice (he also has a great sense of humor). The only thing I would have done differently in this divorce was to ditch my previous lawyer altogether and start with Avi more
