Dangerous and Defective Products
Manufacturers have a duty to ensure that their products are safe for the end user. Yet thousands of people are injured or killed every year by poorly designed vehicles, machines and consumer goods that failed to protect their users or invited serious harm.
If you were seriously injured by a defective product — whether or not it was subject to recall — the experienced product liability attorneys of Martin Kane Kuper, LLC have the demonstrated capacity to secure monetary damages for your medical care and personal losses.
Our trial lawyers can determine if you have grounds to sue. Based in East Brunswick, we represent people in Middlesex County and throughout New Jersey. Call 1-877-NJLAW4U for a free consultation.
Product Liability: Holding Manufacturers Accountable
We have secured substantial verdicts and settlements in product liability lawsuits against major manufacturers:
- Automobile defects -defects in air bags, seat belts or brakes, or badly designed vehicles prone to both rollover and roof collapse
- Industrial machinery – presses, cutters and other workplace machines with inadequate guards or safety mechanisms
- Consumer products – ladders, power tools, appliances, swimming pools, dangerous toys
- Building materials – defective glass, roofing products, fasteners, supports and couplers
- Medical devices – (artificial joints, pacemakers) and pharmaceuticals
Martin Kane Kuper, LLC has won individual product liability lawsuits and participated in mass tort litigation against drug companies and other product makers. We have collected compensation for injury from recalled products that injured many, and won damages in cases where our client stood alone in asserting a defect.
Tracing the Negligence
A product liability case must prove the product (a) is dangerous as designed, (b) was manufactured incorrectly or with inferior materials, or (c) did not include critical warnings or instructions that would prevent harm to a reasonable person. Manufacturers, their suppliers, and their distributors and sellers all may be liable. Martin Kane Kuper hires experts in engineering, product safety and human factors to help prove that the product caused the injury and the manufacturer could have prevented it. We prepare every case for the possibility of a jury trial, which benefits clients even if we ultimately settle out of court.
New Jersey law puts a time limit on the discovery process and the window to file a product liability lawsuit — as little as two years from the date of injury. It is important to contact a product liability lawyer as soon as possible to preserve evidence and locate the right experts who can corroborate a design flaw, manufacturer defect or insufficient warning labels.
