Bergen County, New Jersey Product Liability Attorneys
When a person buys a product, they hope that is was made with care and meets an acceptable level of quality. We buy household items with the idea that the manufacturer is an honest company offering a quality product.

Unfortunately, some companies cut corners or neglect inspections of a product in order to reduce costs and optimize profit. When this happens, people get hurt. If you were hurt by a household or industrial product and believe that it was because of the neglect of a manufacturer or a defect in the design of the product, you should contact a law firm today. Cohn Lifland has years of experience working with clients who have been injured by products. We will passionately represent your interests in your product liability case. No one should endure pain, suffering and years of medical bills because of a defective product. If you need our services, don’t hesitate to call.
Types of product liability claims
There are two main types of product liability claims: design defect and manufacturer’s defect. A design defect product liability case is when a person, injured by a product, could have avoided injury if the product was designed differently. In these cases, the plaintiff will provide evidence of an alternative design that would have been safer, economically feasible and as practical as the original design. In a successful manufacturer defect product liability case, the court will hear evidence that the product was not properly manufactured according to the original design or blueprint of the product, leading to injuries.
Examples of product liability cases involving household products
There are quite a few examples of household products, both recreational and non-recreational, that have injured people and caused damages to households. There are many instances of children’s toys that were defective or manufactured incorrectly, leading to injuries and even deaths. Lawnmowers, snow blowers, trampolines, baby cribs, microwaves, dishwashers and heaters, to name a few, have caused countless injuries and caused damages to houses. When these products cause injuries or damage, you need to discuss your case with an attorney to assess the case and see who is liable for the issue.
Examples of product liability cases involving industrial products
There are countless examples of industrial products that have caused injuries and deaths to workers. Defects in the design or manufacturing of hand tools and saws, scaffolds and ladders, cranes, farm equipment, excavator couplers, manufacturing equipment and construction equipment, just to name a few, have injured and killed workers across many industries. If you believe that you were injured because of a defective product on the worksite, speak to an attorney who can evaluate your case and figure out who is responsible.
