In New Jersey, a manufacturer of a product or machine is generally considered strictly liable for injuries to a user of that product. The Supreme Court of the State of New Jersey, in the early 20th century, established laws that made those manufacturers responsible for defects in their product., regardless of whether the product was used for business, work or pleasure.

The following briefly describes three different types of product liability claims:
Design defect – The faulty design of the product posed a threat and caused an injury.
Failure to warn – The product did not have proper warning labels on the packaging informing consumers of safety hazards, which resulted in physical injuries while using the product.
Manufacturing defect – A defect in the product occurring during manufacturing resulted in serious physical injuries.
There are a variety of items which may cause the consumer or user of the product serious bodily injuries, and even death. Some examples of these potentially dangerous products are listed below:
- Gas Tank Explosions
- Vehicle Roll Overs
- Defective Tires
- Unsafe Consumer Products
- Defective Machine Design
- Usafe Prescription Medications
- Auto Parts
- Children’s Toys
- Household Appliances
- Prescription Medications
Defective products cause serious injuries and permanent disabilities. Such injuries include brain damage, amputations, burns, scars, head injuries, and spinal cord injuries. People injured by defective products may require expensive medical treatments and may no longer be able to work, independently care for themselves, or enjoy their favorite pastimes. It is your right as an injured victim to hold the manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer responsible for the injuries that their products have caused.
