Two Common Questions in Products Liability Lawsuits

As a New Jersey resident, when you encounter a defective or dangerous product that causes injury, you are entitled to file a lawsuit based on products liability in New Jersey. Such cases are common and result in millions of dollars in remuneration given to the injured party.

What determines a successful products liability claim?

If it can be proven that a negligent manufacturer produced a product that caused harm due to inadequate labeling or warnings, you have the foundation for a successful products liability claim. Generally, state laws require that manufacturers and sellers along the supply chain do everything within their power to reasonably protect consumers from harm due to their products. When these laws are not met, manufacturers and supply chain sellers should be held responsible for the financial, emotional and physical suffering caused by their negligence.

Below are some of the most common questions and concerns related to products liability cases:

Question #1: How do I file a claim for products liability in New Jersey?

Your first step should be to speak with a reputable products liability attorney licensed in the State of New Jersey. An attorney will listen to the details related to your case and injury and help you determine the best course of action based on his or her expertise in products liability law in your state.

Question #2: How does a judge or arbitrator determine who “wins” a products liability case?

A judge or arbitrator will consider your case based on their expertise of laws related to negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty. They will look at evidence related to your claim, so be sure to show evidence related to the medical expenses you incurred due to the injury, as well as any financial burden that you and your family have incurred due to the injury.


Personal injuries affect every aspect of your life. In addition to your body needing to heal and recover, you are faced with missing time from work, missing out on recreational activities, and being temporarily or permanently unable to support your family.
