Injured By A Defective Product? We Handle All Types Of Product Liability Claims.

Product liability cases can be complicated. A person injured by a dangerous and defective product needs to jump through several legal hoops. For example, plaintiffs must prove that the product was not fit or safe for its intended purpose because of a defect in design or manufacture. Additionally, a case may be brought because the manufacturer did not provide adequate instructions or warnings about the possible dangers of the product. Because of the different factors involved in product liability cases, it is important to consult a knowledgeable New Jersey personal injury and product liability attorney.

At the Morris County law firm of McHugh & Imbornone, P.A. Law Office, our lawyers help clients who were injured or lost loved ones because of defective products. We file lawsuits and insurance claims seeking compensation for injured victims who used all types of products, including:

  • Motor vehicle components such as tires, seat belts and air bags
  • Defective auto parts resulting in motorcycle crashes
  • Toys with toxic materials or small parts
  • Lawn and garden equipment such as lawnmowers, trimmers and saws
  • Furniture
  • Children’s clothing
  • Household appliances such as heaters and stoves
  • Electrical fixtures and lamps
  • Drugs and medical equipment

These products are most commonly the subject of product liability claims in New Jersey. However, almost any manufactured product could be dangerous if it meets the criteria above. Manufacturers often rush products to market without adequate testing and trials. Even when product recalls are issued, manufacturers may be slow to respond, whatever the type of product. Our knowledgeable personal injury attorneys will advise you about your likelihood of success in bringing a product liability claim.

Other Factors In Product Liability Claims

Proving that a product was defective is not the only factor in a New Jersey product liability claim. You must also demonstrate that you were using the product as intended, that the defect in the product caused your injury and that the injury caused you to suffer losses and damages. Our attorneys are skilled at building strong cases that demonstrate injury, loss and liability to secure compensation for our clients.

Examples Of Injuries From Dangerous Or Defective Products

People harmed by defective products suffer a variety of injuries, including:

  • Burns from motor vehicle crashes, explosions and fires
  • Poisoning from exposure to toxic paint and finishes
  • Broken bones and spinal cord injuries from falls caused by the collapse of weak furniture
  • Electric shock from household appliances and lighting fixtures
  • Wrongful death, in the worst cases

In many instances, lawyers need to conduct in-depth investigations into the history of the product and its manufacture to prove a product liability case. Our law firm has the resources and contacts to conduct such investigations on behalf of injured clients.
