Not everything works the way it should.
All manufacturers, distributors, retailers and suppliers have a duty to make sure the products they put on the market are safe for prescribed use. In the event a product causes personal injury due to a malfunction as a result of design defect or individual malfunction, a lawsuit on the grounds of products liability may be in order.
Different Types Of Cases, Different Rules By State
There are numerous circumstances that fall under products liability, from gross negligence to breach of warranty, in addition to many types of consumer protection claims. It is important to understand that not only does each type of products liability come with a specific set of requirements in order to win a successful verdict, but also that the injury laws that govern products liability are unique to individual states. When you have suffered as a result of a products liability injury in New York or New Jersey, you require expert counsel that is schooled and experienced in local laws and precedents.
