The personal injury lawyers of Breslin & Breslin handle both kinds of defective products cases — those involving manufacturing defects and those involving design defects. We represent clients with claims for permanent, disabling or fatal injuries caused by defective products. Examples include:

  • Automotive products, including seat belts, airbags, tires or roof assemblies
  • Household goods such as heaters, kitchen appliances or cleaning products
  • Power tools or garden equipment
  • Industrial equipment such as presses, extruders, compressors, drills or cutting machines
  • Unsafe supermarket or restaurant foods
  • Dangerous medical or pharmaceutical products

Your lawyer's job is to prove that you were injured by the product, that it was unreasonably dangerous or defective under the circumstances, and that you will need compensation in a certain amount to cover the cost of your treatment and recovery, your future losses and medical needs, and your pain and suffering. Expert testimony will usually be necessary to cover the proof of these points.

In defective design cases, we will normally need to prove as well that a safer product alternative could have been manufactured and sold at minimal additional cost.

Breslin & Breslin settled a products liability claim for $2.08 Million after we showed that design defects were the cause of a small girl's extensive burns in an accident involving an electric kitchen wok.

We represent consumers, workers, drivers and others who suffered severe injuries in Bergen County, Passaic County and northern New Jersey. For more information about our ability to advise and represent you in a products liability case, contact Breslin & Breslin in Hackensack.
