Types of Product Liability Cases in New Jersey

A product can be defective for three possible reasons. Either there was a design defect, a manufacturer defect, a failure to warn, or a combination of these issues. Regardless of which type of defect caused your accident, you will be responsible for proving that someone’s negligence resulted in your injuries. It is critical that you keep the product until the conclusion of your case because it can be used to determine what went wrong to cause the accident. The three types of defects are as follows:

  • Design defects: When a product designer fails to consider certain critical safety aspects, consumers can get hurt. If you were injured by a product’s defective design, you must be able to prove that there was a safer but still economically feasible way that the product should have been designed.
  • Manufacturing defects: If the product’s design was sound but someone in the manufacturing process deviated from the design, the product can be unsafe. If you can prove there was a deviation, you may hold the manufacturers liable.
  • Failure to warn: Sometimes, products can become dangerous if they are not used properly. This is why it is so important to have warning labels on products. If you are injured because of a company’s failure to warn, you may be able to hold the company liable.

Statutes of Limitations & Recovering Damages

If you have been seriously injured because of a defective product, it is important to consider your legal options. If you plan to bring a lawsuit against the party that is liable, it is essential that you do so within 2 years of the date of the injury, in accordance with the state of New Jersey’s statute of limitations. In the event that you fail to bring your case within this time frame, you will not be able to recover significant compensation that can help reduce some of the financial and non-financial burdens related to your accident, also referred to as damages. The economic damages that you may be able to recover include compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and the need to hire outside help while recovering from your injuries. The non-economic damages that you may be able to recover include compensation for emotional distress caused by the accident, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering and more.
