Product Recall Attorney
We bring products into our homes with the idea that they are safe to use. Yet, products released to the general public are recalled all the time for one safety reason or another. Usually, the recall is prompted by a report of an injury or death, which means that the recall is too late to save some consumers.
If you have been hurt by a defective product, including a consumer packaged good, foodstuff, pharmaceutical, or a defective motor vehicle, one of the first things you can do is look to see if the product that harmed you is currently under recall. The issuance of a recall is a common sign that the product is not only dangerous but that the manufacturer has been made aware of the danger.
Steinger, Greene & Feiner vigorously represent those injured by recalled consumer goods. We investigate the law in your state or municipality and seek the maximum amount of damages available.

Relentless Representation for Those Injured by Recalled Products
Large companies will try to avoid liability for the injuries they cause. At Steinger, Greene & Feiner, we anticipate the tactics insurance companies and the manufacturers they represent use to avoid paying for damages. We vigorously assert our clients’ rights to seek reasonable compensation for all of their injuries according to the letter of the law and the insurer’s own policies.
We are prepared to take on your case using the full extent of our available resources. You can rest assured that your case will use the strongest evidence possible and be built upon simple, clear principles of the law. Our product recall attorneys fight for you compensation.
This increases the chances that if your case goes to trial, it will convince the average juror that you deserve compensation. When insurers see that their case would probably lose in court, they are more likely to offer a reasonable settlement for your damages, which is why we treat every case as if it will someday end up in court – because it might!

Who Is Liable After a Recalled Product Injures You?
There are many systems of liability for defective products, and they vary according to individual state law.
Here are some examples of standards of liability for particular states:
- Strict Liability (Florida § 768.81) – Plaintiff only needs to prove that product was used as directed and that an injury occurred because of an unreasonably dangerous condition.
- Unreasonably Dangerous or Defective (Tennessee § 29-28-105(a)) – Plaintiff must either establish the type of defect and how it led to their injury or establish that the product was so dangerous that a “reasonably prudent manufacturer” would not release it.
- Modified Liability (North Carolina § 99B) – Plaintiff must prove one or more of the following:
- That the product was dangerously altered or modified prior to purchase.
- That the manufacturer had knowledge of a dangerous condition but failed to address it prior to release.
- That the manufacturer failed to adequately warn consumers as to the product’s dangers.
- That the manufacturer had a more-safe alternative that did not impair the product’s value.
