New Jersey Product Liability Lawyers

burnt wall outletDid you know there are about 300 product recalls per year in the U.S.? According to data from the Consumer Product Safety Commission, there were over 260,000 injuries and more than 13 fatalities in 2011 just from defective children’s toys.

When products don’t work the way they are expected to and someone gets injured, it can be devastating.

No one should be at risk for serious injury or death due to a defective product either at home or in the workplace.

Types of Product Liability Cases

Motor vehicles, household appliances, and children’s toys are some of the many products that are recalled each year for causing serious injuries to unsuspecting consumers. If you have been injured by one of these defective items, then the New Jersey product liability lawyers of Levinson Axelrod, P.A. can help. We cover the following, common product liability areas:

Faults in these products can pose very serious threats to the users. Because of this, you should also know that not only will your successful product liability suit benefit you, but it will also help other consumers by ensuring that the products they use are safe.

The Importance of Proper Labeling

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.

Causes of Product Flaws & Defects

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

Product liability cases can be extremely complex, especially when multiple manufacturers were involved in the production of the defective item. This is why the attorneys of Levinson Axelrod use all of our resources to build a robust case, including expert witnesses on product liability.

Injuries Caused by Defective Products

There are many types of injuries that can occur from a poorly designed, manufactured or packaged product. From minor injuries like bruises to permanent damage, a dangerous product can lead to injuries such as:

  • Brain trauma
  • Bone fractures
  • Burns
  • Carbon Monoxide poisoning
  • Drowning
  • Electrocution
  • Eye trauma
  • Facial damage
  • Head injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Poisoning
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Wrongful death

Products can be responsible for serious, possibly fatal injuries. A consumer should not have to suffer permanent or temporary changes in their life because of a product they purchased. If you or someone you love has been injured by a defective product, you deserve justice. A product liability law firm can explain your legal options and help guide you in your pursuit of a legal solution.
