Many people experience the unfortunate reality that not everything we buy works as intended. That said, in most cases, a defective product is nothing more than a waste of money. While this is aggravating, it’s even worse when a product defect seriously injures a person using the product. If you were recently hurt because of a product defect, please don’t hesitate to speak with a dedicated Bergen County defective product lawyer from the Law Office of E. Gregory M. Cannarozzi today.
Defective Product Lawyer | Here for Injured Consumers
Every day, people are critically injured due to negligence. Though we tend to think of accidents involving negligence as those that occur on the road or as a result of dangerous property conditions, they often also happen because of negligent product manufacturers or designers. If you sustained an injury while using a dangerous product, you can turn to a knowledgeable Oradell, New Jersey personal injury lawyer from our firm.
Grounds for Defective Product Lawsuits in NJ
There are three primary grounds for product liability lawsuits. Whether you were hurt because of defective car parts, household appliances, power tools, or otherwise, you’ll need to prove that one of the following was the direct cause of your injuries:
- Negligent product designer: If you can demonstrate that you were hurt because of a product designer’s failure to account for consumer safety, you may have a valid claim. However, you’ll also need to prove that there was a safer, economically feasible means of designing the product in question that would not hinder its function or usefulness.
- Failure to warn: Even when a product is safely designed, it may still pose certain risks to consumers when used improperly or without warning of incorrect usage. For example, if a power tool fails to clearly disclose how to (or how to not) use the product, a person can incorrectly use it and sustain a serious injury. This instance will likely qualify for a valid product liability claim.
- Negligent product manufacturer: Product manufacturers are responsible for following blueprints and not using shoddy materials. Unfortunately, product manufacturers will sometimes cut corners to save time or money, causing previously-safe products to become very unsafe. If you were hurt due to a defect caused by a negligent manufacturer, you may also have a valid claim.
As long as we can prove that you were hurt due to any of the aforementioned, you should recover compensation to help offset the physical, financial, and emotional burdens you’ve incurred. Our defective product lawyer is prepared to guide you through each step of the process ahead in pursuit of the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled.
Taking Timely Legal Action
As with any personal injury claim, to recover compensation in a product liability claim, you must file your claim within the state’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations in New Jersey is two years, meaning you mustn’t wait longer than two years from the date of your injury to sue. Our firm is ready to help you today.
