In New Jersey, there are three situations which consumers may file a product liability claim. The first is if a product, component, or engineering design flaw causes injury or damage to property. This can cover anything from poorly executed engineering to defective packaging such as a prescription bottle that the childproof cap failed and your children got sick from it as a result. As a consumer, you deserve the peace of mind and confidence in purchasing products that are safe. When these products fail it can cause accidents, injury and even death.
The second situation is a defect in manufacturing such as a car part that might have been improperly installed. While the part itself wasn’t defective or dangerous when it was produced when the part was installed incorrectly it lead to accident, injury or even death.
