Products Liability

Dangerous products can cause serious injuries. Manufacturers and sellers have a legal obligation to ensure the things they make are safe, properly labeled, and do not operate in a way or contain anything that would cause injury to the user. The attorneys of Badey, Sloan and DiGenova have a history of representing individuals who have been seriously injured by defects in:

  • Consumer Products
  • Industrial Products
  • Automobiles and Construction Vehicles
  • Medical Devices
  • Pharmaceutical and Health Products

There is a distinction between defective products – that don’t do what they claim -- and dangerous products. Defective products, while disappointing, are consumer fraud, not products liability.

Badey, Sloan & DiGenova, P.C. attorneys have successfully litigated product liability cases against some of the largest corporations in the world, achieving full, substantial compensation for victims of defective products.

“We have this goofy ritual we’re known for where we take our clients out to lunch – at McDonalds – whenever we achieve a million- dollar settlement or jury verdict. So while the bluestocking firms are going to the upscale bistros for filet and martinis, we hit Mickey D’s. I remember one case in which a young man had a neck injury and needed surgery. The insurance company offered us $450,000. I asked my client what he wanted to do, and he said, ‘Mr. Badey, I want to go to McDonald’s.’ So we held out and kept fighting, ultimately reaching a $2.8 million dollar settlement. I believe that time, we super-sized it.”
