Defective products can be dangerous to consumers, workers, and all those in their vicinity. They can kill, maim, paralyze, burn, or otherwise seriously injure the user or innocent bystanders. When a personal injury or death occurs due to a defective product, our product liability lawyers in New Jersey are here to help the victims fight for justice. The defectively designed or manufactured product could be a machine, ladder, forklift, toy, car, truck, food, medical device, drug, or any other man made item. How do defective goods end up in homes or workplaces? Some companies fail to conduct enough safety testing, while other companies simply ignore the results of their own tests. In fact, some manufacturers factor the cost of product liability lawsuits into the price of their goods!
Every product liability case comes with its own set of circumstances that makes it unique. The United States Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) tracks trends on product-related injuries and fatalities. So do other governmental entities such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA). According to statistics, in 2012, seven percent of all personal injury cases dealt with unsound products. These cases have the second-highest median damage awards of all personal injury lawsuits.
