Product Liability



We use countless products every day, from cell phones to cars to medical devices. We rely on these products to make our lives easier, more efficient, and safer. However, when products are defectively designed or manufactured, or when they lack the proper safety warnings, innocent individuals can suffer serious harm. Defective and dangerous products are responsible for thousands of injuries and deaths every year. So, who is responsible?

If you were injured or your loved one was killed by a defective product, you can take legal action against the liable party—typically the party responsible for designing, manufacturing, or distributing the product. At The Donnelly Law Firm, our New Jersey product liability lawyers have more than 50 years of combined legal experience; we know how to effectively pursue these claims and fight for the full, fair compensation you are owed.

Types of Product Liability Cases We Handle

Generally speaking, products can be defective in three ways: in the way they are designed, the way they are manufactured, or the way they are marketed/distributed. A design defect occurs when the product is designed so that it is inherently dangerous with proper consumer use; a manufacturing defect occurs when an error occurs during the production stage, affecting only certain units, rather than the whole line of products; and a marketing defect refers to a product that lacks the proper safety warnings or instructions required for safe use. Marketing defects are also referred to as “failure-to-warn” defects.

Any type of product can have one or multiple defects. At The Donnelly Law Firm, we assist clients who have been harmed by all types of defective and dangerous products, including but not limited to:

  • Medical devices
  • Pharmaceutical drugs
  • Over-the-counter medicines
  • Cars and auto parts, such as tires

  • Household items
