Defective Products And The Duty Of Care
Not every injury involving a consumer good leads to a product liability claim. Many products, such as power tools, have the potential to cause great harm if they are not used properly. In those cases, manufacturers have a duty to take steps to limit the danger or at least instruct consumers in proper use of the device. A device that is designed or manufactured in a manner that makes it unsafe is defective.
Almost any type of product can cause injury. Product liability claims can be made for tainted food, defective tools, contaminated drugs, defective toys and children’s products, faulty automobile parts and more. The companies that make and sell products can be held responsible when defective goods cause injury or death.
Protecting New Jersey Consumers
Harmful products make their way to consumers in many ways. Your injury may have been the result of inadequate safety testing or substandard materials. It may have happened because a company chose to save money rather than expend the resources to ensure your safety. Product liability claims help to keep consumers everywhere safe from harm. They force manufacturers and retailers to uphold safety standards and think about consumers before simply releasing dangerous products. Our firm can help you get full compensation for your injuries under New Jersey law. Contact us online or call 856-291-0642 or 800-421-0212 today to discuss your case with a knowledgeable attorney.
