What is Product Liability
Manufacturers, sellers and all those along the chain of distribution have a duty to ensure the quality of the products they put in the hands of consumers. They can be held liable if a consumer is injured as a result of using a defective product.
Types of Product Defects
Our Newark product liability lawyers are experienced in handling a wide variety of product liability cases. These include cases involving product defects such as:
These may include errors caused during the assembly of the product. These errors were not originally intended to be part of the product. These defects are not common. They occur in a small percentage of the products manufactured. Manufacturers can be held liable for faulty construction of their products. It doesn’t matter in what part of the manufacturing process the error took place.
Our Newark product liability attorneys will investigate your claim and determine when the error occurred. We will show that the defect was responsible for your injury and that it was present before the product was removed from the factory.
Design defects include flaws in the blueprint of the product. These flaws result in the product posing a risk to consumers. These types of defects often occur in all the products manufactured. Our lawyers will fight for you to prove that the product’s design was unreasonably dangerous. We’ll show that the application of a superior design would have been economically viable without altering the purpose of the product.
These include false advertising or a failure to label the product properly. It also includes not providing adequate instructions or safety warnings.
Types of Product Liability Claims
There are various types of product liability claims you can file for depending on the nature of your injuries and the type of defect that caused them. A Newark product liability attorney from our firm can fight on your behalf to seek compensation for:
We will seek to hold the company responsible for the design, manufacture or distribution of a product responsible for the injuries caused by the defective product. We will show that the companies had a duty to design, produce or distribute a safe product and failed to do so. We’ll demonstrate how the breach of duty resulted in the injury. We’ll also demonstrate that the responsible party was aware of the breach but failed to act in a reasonably responsible way.
Our attorneys will file a claim to hold the manufacturer or supplier of a product responsible for injuries that have been caused by the use of a defective product. Fault or intent is not of consequence in this type of claim. We will simply prove that the defect existed and was the cause of the injuries sustained.
Breach of Warranty
We’ll file a breach of warranty claim if the warranty on a product you purchased has been broken by the manufacturer, supplier or retailer. We will show that the manufacturer, supplier or retailer failed to provide products that were free of defects or made false claims about the benefits that their products offer.
Who Can You Hold Liable for a Defective Product
Product liability cases can become complex when determining who is at fault. A Newark product liability attorney from our firm will investigate your claim and help establish fault. We are experienced at handling cases involving one or more at fault parties including:
This may include large multi-national companies or an individual that designed a product in their garage. Filing a claim for a defective product may mean filing a claim against the manufacturer of a particular part, the entire product or both.
This is considered the middleman in the chain of distribution. Wholesalers may be held liable for damage caused by defective products.
Consumers purchase products from retailers with the understanding that retailers will only advertise products that are safe for use. While the retailers do not manufacture the foods they can be held liable for providing consumers with defective products.
