Defective Maritime Product Liability Lawyers

If you've suffered an injury because of a defective maritime product, Leav & Steinberg LLP can help. Our team of New York attorneys has years of experience with product liability claims, and you won't be charged any fees until your case has been won.

Maritime Product Liability

Legal and industrial regulations govern the manufacturing standards of maritime equipment. Once the parts have been shipped, it's the distributor's responsibility to ensure that there are no defects when the items arrive at a retailer's warehouse. Any oversight in this process may be considered a breach of product liability law, which can be addressed by a licensed attorney.

Maritime Product Liability Laws

Under general maritime law, injuries caused by defective products on the water can be used to file a claim. Product liability laws require all maritime merchandise to be sold without significant flaws in their composition, construction, or design. The seller must personally exercise as much care as possible to make sure that each product is suitable for purchase at the point of sale. If a product has a flaw in its design or manufacturing or if the seller fails to notify the consumer of the dangers associated with its use, the affected customer may have a case. Examples of defective boat parts that can cause injury or death include:

  • Engines
  • Fuel tanks
  • Safety equipment, such as flotation devices
  • Generators
  • Conveyor belts
  • Fishing nets
  • Faulty construction materials

I had a great experience with this law firm for my personal injury case. I was referred to them by another attorney who did not handle the type of case I had and from the beginning I felt I was in good hands by Edward Averbach, Esq., Edward Steinberg, Esq. and the paralegals that worked my case.
