New Jersey Product Liability Lawyer
Contact a New Jersey Product Liability Lawyer for Guidance
If you’re a New Jersey resident and you were injured by a defective product, you may benefit from consulting a product liability lawyer from McEldrew Young Purtell. Under the law, consumers are protected from goods that cause harm. Should they purchase an item and use it in the way that the manufacturer intended, but it malfunctions or has a defective design which injures them, they may have grounds for an injury claim. Because consumer protection laws contain a lot of fine print, it’s important to consult a New Jersey product liability lawyer to be certain that you have a valid case. We offer a free consultation for New Jersey consumers to discuss their circumstances and how a product caused them serious harm. Give our office a call today to schedule a brief but informative phone consult with an experienced product liability lawyer from our New Jersey legal team.
The Dangers of Defective Products
Even the largest and most well-known consumer manufacturers are vulnerable to making mistakes when it comes to releasing defective products. Many of these mistakes are deemed minor and are addressed in consequent versions of the product. Unfortunately, some defects are not minor at all and in using the product, the user suffers a serious or fatal injury. This is unacceptable, and what is even more tragic is that the manufacturer and other responsible parties will often refuse to pay the victim for their damages, or else offers a pitiful settlement amount. Our New Jersey product liability lawyer is familiar with all of these scenarios and responds as an aggressive advocate for our clients against corporations of any size. Corporate manufacturers typically hire a team of lawyers to protect them against liability claims and lawsuits. Without a seasoned product liability lawyer to represent you, a New Jersey based corporation is more likely to take advantage of you and your family, possibly tying up your claim or lawsuit for years in an effort to bankrupt and frustrate you. Contact us at McEldrew Young Purtell to gain a clearer understanding of how we may be able to help your family get fair compensation from the defective product manufacturer.
Fatal Injuries from Defective Products
On occasion, a consumer will succumb to the injuries they suffered as a direct result of a defective product. If the product was new, or relatively new, and the consumer used the product as directed by the manufacturer’s instructions, their surviving family members may have grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit. New Jersey product liability laws allow for a family representative to hire a lawyer and seek financial relief from the parties that are responsible for the loss of their loved one. Damages that are compensable in suits of this nature may include:
- Funeral and burial costs
- Medical treatment for the victim
- Pain and suffering of the victim
- The loss of income that the victim would have earned up until their retirement
