Any company that designs, manufactures or sells a product has a legal obligation to ensure that product is safe for commercial use.

When a faulty product injures a consumer, manufacturers and their subcontractor or licensees may be held liable for the resulting damages. At Zavodnick, Perlmutter & Boccia, LLC, we have the experience and skill to build your case. If you believe that you or someone you love has been injured or killed by a faulty product, contact our Jersey City injury lawyers to determine whether you have a valid product liability case.

Common types of product liability cases

Theoretically, any defective product can be the basis of a product liability lawsuit. However, certain types of products cause the greatest injuries when they are faultily designed and, therefore, lay at the heart of most product liability lawsuits. These types of product include:

  • Motor vehicle defects such as faulty brakes, seat belts, air bags or other safety issues
  • Drugs
  • Medical devices
  • Toys and other children’s products
  • Drugs and medical devices
  • Chemical product such as cleaners
  • Home appliances
  • Power tools, both industrial and consumer

Proving products liability

While every case is unique, you generally need to prove the following things to bring a successful products liability case:

  • You suffered an injury or damage.
  • The product you were using while you were injured was either defective or lacked sufficient warnings or instructions.
  • This defect or lack of warnings or instructions specifically led to your injury.
  • You were using the product in question in the manner in which it was intended when it injured you.

Some courts do allow a certain amount of interpretation on this final point regarding products liability cases. For example, courts have ruled that a child who is playing with a toy in a manner that provides fun and enjoyment is using a toy in its prescribed manner regardless of what the instructions say.
