What Is a Defective Product?

A defective product has a flaw that makes it dangerous to use. There are three primary product liability claims that most defective product cases fall under:

Design Defects

The product is flawed because of a defect in the design that makes the product inherently dangerous to use. Each product made using the design will have the same defect. In other words, the product was dangerous from the start, regardless of how careful or diligent the manufacturer was while making it.

Manufacturing Defect 

An error occurs during the manufacturing process that results in a product defect. The defect may or may not appear in all products with that design because the error may be limited to a specific lot. For example, the manufacturer fails to use the correct bolts when producing a specific number of vehicles or when a batch of food is contaminated during manufacturing. 

Failure To Warn

A company is responsible for warning consumers about the dangers and risks of using a product. They must also provide sufficient instructions for the safe use of the product. If there are no warnings, inadequate warnings, or incomplete instructions, it could result in a failure to warn claim. 

Like other personal injury claims, the injured victim has the burden of proving liability for their injuries and damages. There are several causes of action for product liability claims, including:

Strict Liability

If a product is inherently dangerous or defective, the manufacturer and other responsible parties could be strictly liable for damages. Strict liability does not require you to prove negligence or that the party failed to meet a standard of care. Merely proving that the product was defective and the defect caused your injury can result in compensation for damages.


Negligence focuses on the actions or inactions of the parties responsible for the defective product. It means something similar to “carelessness” and occurs when a person or entity fails to uphold a given duty of care. Some product liability claims may be based on negligence, though strict liability is more common.

Breach of Warranty

A warranty is a promise regarding a product’s durability, effectiveness, or safety. A manufacturer or other responsible party can be held liable if they warrant the product you purchased and the product does not meet the promises made under the warranty. 

Consumer Protection Claims

Some product liability cases are based on violations of consumer protection laws. These laws were created to protect consumers from dangerous goods, defective products, and fraudulent business practices. 

At Noonan & McMahon, LLC, our Freehold product liability lawyers have considerable knowledge about product liability laws. We pursue each claim available for your case to maximize your recovery for damages.

What Damages Are Available for a Freehold Product Liability Case?

New Jersey tort laws allow victims to recover compensatory damages for their losses and the harm caused by the at-fault party. You may receive compensation for your economic damages and non-economic damages, including:

  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering caused by physical injuries
  • Medical bills and expenses
  • Emotional distress and mental anguish
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Loss of enjoyment of life and diminished quality of life
  • Rehabilitative therapies
  • Out-of-pocket expenses
  • Long-term nursing and/or personal care
  • Decrease in earning capacity

A jury may award punitive damages as a way to punish the defendant for specific conduct. However, punitive damages are awarded in a small number of personal injury lawsuits.

Our legal team at Noonan & McMahon, LLC carefully analyzes all factors in your case to maximize the compensation you receive for damages. We pursue each claim and every source of compensation to put as much money in your pocket as possible. 

Can I Recover Compensation for a Product Liability Claim in New Jersey if I’m Partially To Blame for My Injuries?

The at-fault parties and their insurance providers want to blame you for your injuries. If they can blame you, they could escape liability for your damages under New Jersey’s modified comparative negligence law.

Under N.J.S.A. §2A:15-5.1, an injured victim cannot recover damages if they are 51% or more at fault for causing their injuries. If the victim is less than 51% at fault, they could receive some money for their damages. However, the amount they receive is reduced by their percentage of fault. 

Defendants often point the finger at the victim to avoid liability for injuries they caused. Insurance adjusters use this tactic to undervalue claims by frightening victims into believing they could lose everything if they argue about the settlement offer.

Our Freehold product liability lawyers aggressively fight allegations of contributory fault. If you could be partially to blame, we fight to decrease your percentage of blame as low as possible to obtain some money for your claim. 

What Is the Statute of Limitations for a Product Liability Claim in Freehold, NJ?

The New Jersey statute of limitations sets a filing deadline for most product liability lawsuits at two years after the date of injury. Courts can dismiss your lawsuit if you allow the deadline to pass. 

However, there are exceptions to the standard two-year rule. Therefore, we strongly recommend you contact our law firm as soon as possible to discuss your case. 

You may have more or less time to file a product liability claim, and we do not want you to lose your right to pursue a claim against the parties responsible for your injuries.
