Products Liability

A products liability case arises when someone is injured as a result of a defective product. The case will usually involve an allegation of either a defective design and/or that the product was defectively manufactured, and some cases focus on the manufacturer or commercial retailer's failure to warn once a defect should have reasonably been discovered. One of the most important steps in a products liability case is to take the proper steps to, if possible, preserve the product believed to be defective.

Thereafter, we work with a network of experts who will inspect and evaluate the product and consult with us throughout the litigation process. Products liability cases routinely wind up in Federal Court, and the manufacturer without fail has a team of attorneys being well paid to see that the injured person goes away empty. Our firm has greatly expanded its caseload in this area of law within the last ten years, and we currently represent seven clients in major pending federal court multi-district litigation for defective medical implants. We have also won cases for clients having been injured on or by among other things defective treadmills, pool decking fence covers, industrial warehouse conveyor belts, automobile brakes, automobile tires and prosthetic knees.

If you or someone you know has been injured as a result of a defective product, even if you are not sure whether there is a case or not, give us a call. Bob and George will be happy to talk to you.

Construction Accidents

Fight for the compensation you are entitled to with construction accident law services from our firm in Gloversville, New York. The attorneys with Abdella Law Offices have achieved large settlements for individuals injured in construction accidents.
If you are injured in a construction accident, there is potentially significantly more money available to you than you can get through workers compensation. In many instances, an injured worker is entitled to money for their pain and suffering, as well as past and future lost wages, if it can be shown that an owner of the property or a general contractor on the work site are liable for the accident.

The legislature has put into place Labor Law Sections 200, 240 and 241 which place the responsibility for work place safety on owners and general contractors and in some cases subject the owner/ general contractor to absolute liability for the injuries and damages sustained. These laws can be quite complex and the application of these laws to specific cases is even more complex.

Fortunately, both Bob and George Abdella have handled many such cases and are well familiar with the laws that govern these cases which are designed to protect injured workers. This firm has achieved several large settlements for people injured in construction accidents. There is no fee for a consultation. These protective laws may apply to you. If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction accident, pick up the phone and call us.
