Products Liability

Middlesex County Products Liability Attorney

You know that personal injury attorneys are often referred to as "ambulance chasers" and by other such unflattering names.  What you may not know, however, is that without the efforts of personal injury attorneys our society would be a much more dangerous place in which to live.  Manufacturers of products, whether they are automobiles, pharmaceutical drugs, children's toys, appliances or the like, are all ultimately in business to make money. In their zeal to make money, manufacturers sometimes fail to recognize and, at other times, chose to ignore the inherent dangers that their products pose to consumers at large.  It logically follows then that in order to force manufacturers to take consumer safety into account you must make them fear losing money for their failure to do so. Product liability lawsuits filed by personal injury attorneys on behalf of victims of such dangerous or defective products is how this is accomplished.

Product liability lawsuits typically fall into one of the following three categories:

  1. Design Defect - Here it is the way the product has been designed, not the way it has been built, which renders it unsafe.   For example, a company builds a snow thrower that is not equipped with an ejection chute to properly direct snow away from the operator.
  2. Manufacturing Defect - Here it is the way the product has been built, not the way it has been designed, which renders it unsafe. For example, the snow thrower is equipped with an ejection chute that properly directs snow away from the operator but the chute in question was never properly bolted down.   
  3. Marketing Defect - Here the product has been put on the market with insufficient warning labels or instructions.  For example, the snow thrower is put on the market with no labels or instructions to warn or inform the operator to keep his or her body parts away from the ejection chute.
