Responsibilities of Manufacturers and Vendors
A manufacturer who shows lack of reasonable care in the design, assembly, or production of a product is guilty of negligence. To put it more simply, this means the manufacturer did something that shouldn’t have been done, or failed to do something that should have been done. For example, the design of a baby product does not adhere to safety standards, and results in injuries. Or, an employee on the assembly line fails to correctly assemble an automobile airbag, and an injury occurs. A New Jersey products liability lawyer can determine if a manufacturer is at fault for your injury.
Breach of warranty and misrepresentation are two other types of product liability theories. Breach of warranty refers to the product’s inability to stand up to a promise or claim made by the manufacturer concerning its quality or type, while misrepresentation occurs when advertising or sales efforts give consumers a false sense of security about a product, usually by ignoring, or drawing the consumer’s attention away from, the product’s dangers.

Cause of Injuries
When it comes to determining and proving the cause of injuries, product liability cases can become confusing. In order to file a products liability claim, you must prove first that the product was defective when it left the manufacturer or seller, that you did not cause the defect, and finally, that the defect was the cause of the injury.
