Product Liability

Defective Product Attorneys in New Jersey and Pennsylvania

If you have sustained an injury or a loved one has died as a result of a dangerous or defective product, you may be eligible for compensation to cover the cost of medical expenses and loss of wages as well as pain and suffering. Since there are deadlines for filing a claim, it is crucial that you contact an experienced product liability attorney as soon as possible so as not to inadvertently jeopardize your rights.

The skilled attorneys at Winegar, Wilhelm, Glynn & Roemersma serve clients across both New Jersey and Pennsylvania, possess the extensive experience required to handle even the most complex product liability cases, and are personally dedicated to help you obtain the best possible results for your case.

Product liability cases typically fall into one of the following three categories:

  • Manufacturing Defect - If part of a product is cracked or bent during the manufacturing process, it could cause the product not to work properly and may result in injury.
  • Design Defect - Products with design defects can often perform their intended function; however, safety devices or other components may be missing from the product, which could result in injury.
  • Inadequate Warning Label - If a product was sold to a customer without a proper label informing the customer of its hazards or side effects, injury could result.

Defective / Dangerous Products

Thousands of products receive approval to go on the market each year. Unfortunately, some of these products are later found to be unsafe.

Consumer goods that may be dangerous or defective include toys, appliances, electronics, and faulty automobile components such as seatbelts, tires, and airbags. The manufacturer, seller, or provider of a product may be held liable for injuries or damages resulting from the defect. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury due to a defective product, you need attorneys with a proven track record on your side. Serving New Jersey and Pennsylvania, the attorneys at the law firm of Winegar, Wilhelm, Glynn & Roemersma have the experience to help you obtain the compensation you deserve while removing dangerous or defective products from the market.

Dangerous Drugs

Medications should be tested and determined safe before going on the market. However, some improperly tested drugs have gained FDA clearance, endangering many lives as a result. Mistakes can also be made during the manufacturing process, which may lead to contamination of the drug and cause serious injury. If you or a loved one has suffered an adverse reaction that you believe was caused by defective or dangerous medication, you may be entitled to compensation. Manufacturers of dangerous drugs can be held liable for injuries or death that result from the use of their product. For more information about dangerous drugs or to file a claim, contact the law firm of Winegar, Wilhelm, Glynn & Roemersma today.

Pharmaceutical Products

A number of pharmaceutical products have faced reports of being defective or more dangerous than originally believed. Examples include the Ortho Evra® contraceptive patch, various dietary supplements such as ephedra, and medical vaccinations containing thimerosal. Dangerous pharmaceutical products can cause adverse reactions and endanger the health of individuals who use them. If you have suffered an injury or serious side effect after using a defective pharmaceutical product, contact the defective product attorneys at our New Jersey and Pennsylvania locations. We can evaluate your case and help you get the compensation you deserve.

Medical Devices

Medical devices including breast implants, pacemakers, and knee replacements all need to receive approval from the Food and Drug Administration's Center for Devices and Radiological Health before they are released on the market. Although they should be properly tested before receiving approval, some products are found to be defective after they have gained clearance. Such devices may cause suffering, injuries, and even death. If you or a loved one has suffered as a result of a defective medical device, contact Winegar, Wilhelm, Glynn & Roemersma today. Our defective product attorneys have extensive experience representing clients in New Jersey and Pennsylvania in product liability cases involving medical devices and can help you to obtain the compensation to which you are entitled.

Consumer Goods

Most people rarely consider the safety of everyday consumer goods such as tools, appliances, and other household products. However, design and manufacturing defects can make these items dangerous or even deadly. Although manufacturers are required to meet safety standards outlined by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, hundreds of products are recalled each year due to concerns over faulty parts and other safety issues. If you have been injured using a consumer product, contact Winegar, Wilhelm, Glynn & Roemersma to speak with our experienced defective product attorneys about your claim.

Industrial Machinery

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has several health and safety standards in place to ensure that work environments throughout the United States are safe. OSHA requires that all industrial machinery meet specific safety regulations and technical requirements before being used in the workplace. Unfortunately, machinery with manufacturing defects or inadequate warning labels may slip through the cracks and can lead to serious injuries or even death. Individuals who have been injured in the workplace may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses and loss of wages, as well as pain and suffering. Contact our firm as soon as possible for a review of your case.
