Your NJ Lawyers For Product Liability Cases
Product liability cases involve lawsuits against manufacturers and distributors of defective products. The product could be a drug, medical device, machine, food product, an automobile, etc. If the product was manufactured or designed negligently, contained inadequate warnings, or was defective in other ways, you may have a case.
Defective products often cause injuries that are devastating. Manufacturers and their agents are obligated to provide consumers with products that are safe when used in a reasonable manner. No one should be at risk for serious injury or death due to a defective product either at home or in the workplace.
Manufacturers are also obligated to market their product responsibly. This means that, although a product may be safe if used for a specific purpose, it could be hazardous if used under different circumstances. Therefore, the product must include clear, visible and concise warnings outlining these dangers and their consequences.
Three Types Of Manufacturing Flaws
Unfortunately, a design or manufacturing flaw can occur in almost any product. Usually, the defect occurs in one of the following three ways:
- Engineering & Design: a flaw exists in the product’s design or the design of the product carries an increased injury risk
- Manufacturing: a flaw occurred in the assembly phase or in a material used to create the product or packaging
- Failure to Warn: the product does not include sufficient labeling or directions
Defective products can pose very serious harms to the users. Product liability cases are extremely complex, especially when multiple manufacturers were involved in the production of the defective item. If you feel that you have been injured by a defective product, make sure you get the name and address of the manufacturer as well as the store where you purchased it and call us immediately.
