New Jersey Dangerous & Defective Products Lawyers
Many injuries caused by dangerous and defective products could be avoided if the manufacturers or distributors of these products took additional steps to ensure consumer safety. The main incentive to increase product safety is to avoid potential liability in product liability lawsuits, which provide compensation for the personal injuries sustained from the use of a defective product. If you have suffered injuries due to a defective product you may be able to file a claim against the manufacturer to recover damages. You do not necessarily have to prove that the manufacturer was negligent. Product liability claims, often called strict product liability can be established if you are able to prove three things:
- The product was defective
- The defect existed prior to the manufacturer releasing the product
- The defect caused your damages
Manufacturers and their marketers must label the product in such a way as to warn of all dangers associated with its use. They must specifically state how that product should be used and warn you of the hazards. The Epstein Law Firm‘s mission in pursuing product liability cases is to obtain just compensation for our injured clients and to create an economic incentive for those in the stream of commerce to produce safe products and provide sufficient warning of the dangers of their products, ultimately resulting in the saving of lives. The damages the consumer is entitled to receive in a dangerous or defective product case include compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of physical capacity
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
- Punitive damages
Whether dealing with a manufacturing flaw or defect, a design flaw or defect, or where a product is unreasonably dangerous because of inadequate instructions or warnings, we ensure that injured consumers or the family and heirs of deceased consumers receive fair treatment under the law for injuries caused by dangerous and defective products. The Epstein Law Firm also investigates whether a manufacturer or company is no longer in business or sold to another company in order to determine if a new or successor company may be liable.
