Defective Products

Defective Products

Each and every day, we use countless products, from food to vehicles to personal care items, without thinking about their potential to harm us. But if a product is defective, the consequences of using it can be severe. Imagine, for example, an airbag that doesn’t properly inflate, a battery that explodes, or a child’s toy that is small enough to choke on. Any of these situations could result in serious injury or death, and it’s crucial that the manufacturer be held liable. If you or a loved one has been injured due to defective products, working with a Passaic County defective product lawyer is in your best interest. When you need a knowledgeable and compassionate legal team on your side during this stressful time, Bavagnoli & Bavagnoli will work hard to help you get the justice you deserve.


Product Liability Claim Types

There are several different types of product liability claims you may be able to bring to court, depending on how the product has harmed you.

Defective Design – A product that was defectively designed can result in serious harm. A poorly designed SUV that easily flips, a child’s toy with a dangerous edge, or a medical device that fails because it was improperly designed can all cause injuries or worse.

Defective Manufacturing – If a product was properly designed, but an error occurred when it was being made, it can render the product incredibly dangerous. Smoke detectors or airbags that don’t work are just two examples that would qualify for defective manufacturing claims.

Inadequate/Missing Warning or Instructions – Sometimes a product is mislabeled or instructions for how to use it are missing, and this results in injuries or illness for which the manufacturer can be held liable. For example, caustic cleaning products must contain warnings about the dangers of inhalation or skin contact. Sometimes, a dangerous product does not include a warning about potential harmful misuse, which can also result in severe injuries. Medicines that do not include information about possible interactions are a good example.

If you have experienced any of these, working with a product liability lawyer serving Passaic County is essential. Get in touch for a free consultation and we’ll tell you more about your rights and how we can help.


Recovering Damages in Product Liability Cases

Defective Products often cause injuries that result in lengthy hospital stays, financial losses, and even damage to your closest relationships. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be entitled to recover one or more of the following types of damages:

Compensatory Damages for medical bills, lost work time, and property damage due to the product defect at hand.

Loss of Consortium to get compensation for how the injuries caused by the product affected your relationship with your spouse.

Punitive Damages may be sought in serious cases where the circumstances surrounding the product defect were especially egregious on the part of the manufacturer. Punitive damages often are limited and are specific to the jurisdiction.
