A Lawyers Explanation: Defective and Dangerous Products
Our Ocean County injury lawyers have the experience necessary to determine if your injuries were due to a defective or unsafe product. Our Monmouth County personal injury attorney will investigate your claim to reveal whether there was inadequate protection against the hazards presented by the faulty product, or, if the injuries were caused by other deficiencies in design, manufacture, distribution, and/or in the instructions and warnings provided to the consumer.
When you walk through the aisle of a grocery or department store, it is obvious that there are thousands of products which are sold to New Jersey consumers. The range of products, such as pharmaceuticals, medications, appliances, tools, vehicles, boats, motorcycles, children’s toys, and food can all cause serious harm if they are manufactured, have inadequate warnings, or are defective in design.

The Product is Defective… Now What?As you can see, the heart of any product liability case is whether the product is in fact defective. A product can be defective in many ways. However, the investigation and development of a product liability case doesn’t end there. Your Monmouth County lawyer at Riviere Advocacy Group LLC will have to further prove that the product which allegedly had deficiencies in design, manufacture, distribution, and/or in the instructions and warnings provided to the consumer, presented risks that were foreseeable to the consumer.
For example, products such as baby cribs with slats that aren’t properly spaced, and have no warnings that babies are at risk, doesn’t automatically mean there is liability on behalf of the crib maker. The improper spacing has to be a foreseeable risk to the baby.
Confused? This is not a subject matter that is easily comprehended by a layman; all the more reason to call one of our attorneys for a free consultation.
