Injured by a Defective Household Product in New Jersey?

Contact the New Jersey household product liability lawyers of Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP today

Because of advances in science and manufacturing, we have a great variety of products to choose from when shopping. However, dangerous household products are all too common in today’s society, as we hear about from various product recalls every year.

Manufacturers and vendors of products containing dangerous chemicals or other hazardous components owe a duty of care to potential customers. If products do not have clear, prominent warning labels and people are injured while using them in reasonable manners, the injury victims may bring claims for compensation against those who made and sold the products.

Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP has made a name for itself as a leading New Jersey product liability law firm. We work to protect the rights of people injured by defective products, including household products. We have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in settlements and jury verdicts on behalf of victims of negligence, including significant product liability cases.

The firm handles defective product claims including but not limited to:

  • Children’s products and toys
  • Cleaning products and household chemicals
  • Clothing
  • Pre-wired furniture
  • Electric blankets or heated mattress pads
  • Exercise equipment
  • Grooming and hygiene items (curling irons, cosmetics, etc.)
  • Heavy furniture
  • Home appliances
  • Lawnmowers and gardening equipment
  • Over-the-counter drugs and medicine
  • Power tools
  • Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors

What kinds of injuries can defective household products cause?

Most household items have some level of danger – gas stoves have open flames, after all – but a defect can increase the risk of serious injuries. Among the most common are:

  • Burn injuries
  • Asphyxiation/oxygen deprivation
  • Back and spine injuries
  • Crushed bones
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Digit or limb loss
  • Lacerations
  • Orthopedic injuries
  • Lacerations

What are the three types of household product defects?

When putting together a successful product liability claim, you must show that you or your loved one were injured by a product because it was either made improperly, or did not come with proper warnings. Our attorneys work to show one of these three product defects:

  • Design defect. This means the inherent design of the product was unsafe. Every single version of the product will be dangerous, as its original and intended design was dangerous from the start.
  • Manufacturing defect. With this type of defect, something went wrong during production. The product manufacturer may have strayed from the original design, resulting in an unsafe product.
  • Warning defect. A warning defect means that the product was designed and manufactured as intended, but the product was dangerous in a different way, and did not contain warning labels noting that danger. This is usually because the danger is not obvious and the consumer may not know to avoid certain uses or behavior regarding the product. Proper labeling and warnings can prevent injuries.

When you buy a product, use it per the instructions and for its intended use, and suffer an injury, you may be eligible for a product liability claim. These types of claims, however, can be complex. The New Jersey personal injury attorneys at Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP can guide you through the process with confidence.
