Consumer Product Injuries
New Jersey Injury Lawyers with Over $1 Billion Won
When you purchase a product, you have every reason to believe the product is safe for use or for consumption; however, that is not always the case. In fact, thousands of individuals are injured every year by defective and dangerous consumer products—products that were either flawed in design, manufacturing, or even products that simply failed to warn about inherent dangers. If that happened to you, our New Jersey law firm can help.
Legal Remedies in Product Liability Claims
The two main theories that can apply to defective product cases include the following:
- Negligence – In a product liability claim involving negligence, the plaintiff would need to prove that the defendant (either the manufacturer or distributor) breached their duty, that the breach of duty is what caused an injury to the plaintiff, and that the plaintiff suffered actual damage. An example of a negligent lawsuit would be a manufacturer who did not properly test a product before sending it out.
- Strict Liability – Strict liability does not focus on the manufacturer’s behavior; rather, it focuses on the state of the product. Under this legal theory, someone could be liable even if negligence was not in play. To prove this claim, it would need to be proven that a defect occurred during manufacturing; the plaintiff would not need to prove the manufacturer’s behavior fell below the standard level of care.
