Product Liability

Product Liability Attorneys New Jersey, Pennsylvania

Representing Victims of Dangerous or Defective Products

We rely on the good faith of companies to make products that are safe and effective; however, certain products bypass safety and/or quality control checks and are released into the marketplace, where they injure innocent consumers, especially here in NJ. Under NJ product liability laws, victims can pursue financial compensation for injuries they’ve sustained while using a defective or dangerous product. A skilled attorney can increase the chances of obtaining a favorable verdict and settlement with a well-executed legal argument. If you have been harmed by a dangerous or defective product, contact the product liability attorneys at Vlasac & Shmaruk, LLC, serving New Jersey and Pennsylvania, to schedule a free consultation with our multilingual legal team.

Defective Product Lawyer New Jersey

According to NJ product liability laws, businesses have a responsibility to make and sell goods that are safe when used for their intended purposes. If a consumer is injured as a result of using a flawed product, the manufacturer or seller may be found liable and ordered to compensate the victim for injury-related expenses (and, in certain cases, victims are awarded additional punitive damages).

Consumers are injured by defective and dangerous products from practically every corner of the marketplace, including:

  • Automobiles/automobile parts
  • Industrial equipment
  • Drugs
  • Household products
  • Toys

New Jersey and Pennsylvania courts recognize three basic types of defects that can serve as grounds for product liability lawsuits: design defects, manufacturing defects, and inadequate warnings or instructions concerning the proper use of the product. In most product liability cases, the doctrine of strict liability comes into play; according to this doctrine, the manufacturer or supplier may be held responsible for injuries caused by their products even if a specific act of negligence cannot be identified or proven. In such cases, the defect itself is considered sufficient evidence of negligence.

Product liability laws are in place not only to ensure the rights of injured victims, but also to incentivize manufacturers and distributors to make and sell products that are reasonably safe and meet consumer expectations.

Common Injuries

Victims can suffer various physical injuries as the result of using a defective product or taking a dangerous drug. For example, someone who takes medication that causes blood clots can suffer a brain injury, stroke, or heart attack. In the case of an auto accident in which the seatbelts and/or airbags of the vehicle are defective, the victim could hit the windshield and severely injure his or her spinal cord. A defective heating blanket could cause a burn injury, or a dangerous toy could cause a small child to choke. Broken bones and amputations are also common consequences of using a dangerous or defective product – in particular, pieces of industrial or construction equipment.

Tragically, dangerous and defective products can, and often do, cause fatalities. Pharmaceutical and automobile companies have faced wrongful death claims from families of people who died because of defective auto parts or dangerous drugs.

    About 4 months ago my wife got a job that came with housing. After going over all details and making plans for about 4 months prior to moving with management we packed up our whole lives, our pets, dropped some side jobs we had, and moved … More to the property where the job was located. After a few weeks things started getting very strange with management and "team" and after 2 full months everything that was planned in detail prior to moving to this property fell apart. After trying to discuss in person with management and then trying to discuss through email with management my wife was fired and we were given 5 days to pack up and leave the property. We had to start our lives over again. We immediately contacted Vlasac & Shmaruk LLC and worked with Ryan Getz & David Cassidy who are absolutely incredible at what they do! They were able to help us get off the property in a reasonable way and receive a settlement for all trouble caused by this "business". This was an incredibly stressful and scary situation but David and Ryan stayed in contact with us, were extremely patient, professional, soothing and just overly fantastic. If you are having any type of issue with an employement situation and being treated unfairly I highly recommend working with Ryan & David! I am so thankful they were able to take our case and help us through that mess. This was our first time having to hire legal help and I am just so grateful we found David and Ryan. In the future should we need any additional legal help we will absolutely be contacting them again. Thank you both so much!

    My wife and I were involved in a motor vehicle accident. Vlasac and Shmaruk took care of everything. They walked us through the process and took care of all the paperwork. They reached a settlement and we were happy. Glad to put that … More behind us and glad we used Vlasac and Shmaruk to help us get the money we needed for a new car and to get our medical bills paid. Thanks for everything you did!!!!
