When you buy a product from a trusted manufacturer, you want to believe that the manufacturer honestly advertised that product. Unfortunately, manufacturers who want to stay in the black may sometimes cut corners at their consumers’ expense. These manufacturers may overlook certain safety tests or fail to mention a product’s possible risks on its packaging.
Whether you’re contending with the aftermath of a pressure cooker explosion or medication that didn’t perform as advertised, you may find yourself entitled to a product liability case. Rand Spear’s product liability attorneys in Marlton, NJ, can help you investigate the nature of your accident. We can then help you file a personal injury lawsuit against an offending party.
Your Right to a Product Liability Lawsuit
If you want to take legal action after a product liability claim, you have the right to do so in civil court. You can collaborate with an attorney to file a personal injury claim detailing:
- The nature of your product liability accident’s losses
- What evidence you have supporting an estimate of those losses’ value
- Who or what party you believe to be liable for your accident
- What evidence you have suggesting that a named party’s negligence resulted in your losses
The complaint you bring forward in civil court must include this information if you want it to move forward. New Jersey’s civil courts may throw out incomplete complaints or complaints that don’t adequately represent a violation of the duty of care owed to the injured party.
Filing Your Product Liability Claim
If you decide to move forward with a product liability claim, know that you have a limited amount of time in which you can conduct your relevant investigation. New Jersey Statutes section 2A:14-2, or New Jersey’s personal injury statute of limitations, gives you no more than two years to both investigate your losses and submit a relevant civil claim.
A two-year investigative period may seem generous at first. In reality, though, this statute of limitations can vastly underestimate the demands that your personal responsibilities and medical recovery make of your time. If you don’t act quickly, that two-year deadline can expire without you fighting for your right to the post-accident support you deserve.
Failing to file your complaint within that deadline can see New Jersey’s civil courts outright deny any future attempts to pursue compensation for a relevant personal injury accident. Fortunately, you can work with experienced product liability lawyers in Marlton to make the most out of your two-year filing period. We prioritize your case while you focus on recovering.

Creating a Comprehensive Product Liability Claim
You know when you have to submit your product liability claim, but what information should you include in it? Your product liability claim should specifically:
Hold a Liable Party Accountable for Your Losses
Product liability claims often see injured parties like you hold corporations liable for their losses. Proving that a corporation or one of its subcontractors bears the blame for your accident can be tricky, though. Contracts and corporate hairsplitting can make it difficult for you to secure the compensation you deserve for your losses.
That, however, is where we step in. Our team investigates your accident and brings forward the evidence we need to prove that a corporation or related party bears the blame for your losses. This evidence can include:
- Statements from other injured parties
- State precedent on similar cases
- Bystander accounts of your losses
- Statements from expert witnesses
- Physical debris, including the damaged product
If the need arises, we can connect you with other parties injured by a certain product. Together you can discuss the benefits of pursuing a class action lawsuit.
We can also prevent a corporation from offering you an insufficient settlement or intimidating you out of your right to legal action.
Calculate the Economic Value of Your Product Liability Losses
Recovering from a product liability accident can be a costly endeavor. If you don’t have emergency savings tucked away, contending with your post-accident bills may feel impossible. Fortunately, you have the right to include an estimate of your total losses in the complaint you submit to a civil judge. Your demand for damages can subsequently cover your:
- Medical expenses
- Emotional distress
- Damaged property
- Mental anguish
- Lost wages or opportunities to pursue alternative employment
- Pain and suffering
Our team can help you determine the value of non-economic damages, like mental anguish, after calculating the sum of your product liability accident’s economic losses. Together we can fight for your right to a fair and comprehensive settlement.
Product Liability Attorneys Can Champion Your Case
You have the right to represent your own interests in a product liability case. However, doing so can make it more difficult for you to recover from accident-related injuries or losses.
